The author has clearly put a good deal of work into this, and it is certainly labour-saving for a reading group organiser, also summarising a range of resources available, such as websites of literary magazines which review books.
I was initially sceptical because the opening advice on setting up a group seems a bit obvious and patronising e.g. "the easiest way to start a reading group is to begin with friends"..."If you have a small group, two missing members might mean that you want to reschedule"
A few useful points have been omitted such as the fact that sometimes sets of books can be obtained through the local library. The University of the Third Age deserves a mention. How to obtain books - e.g. secondhand through Amazon for as little as one penny plus postage is also worth flagging up. Working through local community groups and having a space on a website, or one's own website is another area to include.
This very useful book lends itself to having an "online" version which can be updated regularly.
