I first came across this book when studying for an MA in Conflict Transformation in the late 1990s, as it was required reading on one of my courses. I am currently writing up a doctoral research project that has been examining how church staff teams deal with disagreement in their team meetings. Doyle & Strauss' book remains one of the few really helpful resources. Their analysis of what goes wrong at meetings is still spot on, despite all the technological changes. There is still much practical wisdom and advice that is vital for facilitators, recorders etc. They offer a range of tools and processes which remain useful and practical.
One downside for British readers is that the book is North American. A good British book to supplement this one is Catherine Widdicombe's Meetings That Work: A Guide to Team Working in Groups. Two other US books worth exploring are Patrick Lencioni's Death By Meeting, and Roger Schwartz's The Skilled Facilitator - but Doyle & Straus's book is much more accessible and readible than Schwartz's, and remains well worth getting. And that's presumably why it is still in print, after 35 years!
