4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primer on how to facilitate a meeting 22 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book offers a thorough grounding in Facilitation 101. A section I found particularly useful was the one which addressed problem-solving. This section takes the reader through the process step by step.
I wish the book offered more practical exercises for facilitators to use in their work. But since there are other books devoted entirely to exercises, this is a minor complaint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still invaluable despite its age 21 April 2011
By AliMac
Format:Paperback
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated 5 July 2008
Format:Paperback
Read the previous reviews and thought this is for me- however on reading it the content and ideas are outdated and dont reflect the modern business world. Doesn't include POwerPOint ! Wonder why and saw it was written in 1976.
I couldn't reommend this at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best source for facilitation technique. 1 Oct 1998
By LTC J. G. Woyansky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've used this book as a constant reference over the last six years while a facilitator for BPR and Change Management projects. Although it may lack a comprehensive array of practical exercies and techniques for all situations that arise in meetings or during facilitated focus group sessions, it is by far the best reference. Once you read, re-read, and fully understand the basics that Doyle and Straus are presenting, you can modify and add your own experience and methods.

of all the things that we learn in school, how to more effectively manage a meeting is not one of them, but should be. i wish i had read this many years ago. everyone who joins our team receives a copy in their first week.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Book on Meetings! 3 Mar 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although at first glance I was skeptical, this book provided great insight into running a meeting that participants will actually enjoy and get something out of. It was not just a repeat of the things I already knew. After reading this book and implementing some of the ideas, people noticed the improvements from clear agendas which stated the purpose, to the approach used during the meeting to make sure we were all aligned and in agreement on what we were to achieve. I highly recommend this book.
