4.0 out of 5 stars Community Wins by Bryan Allain, 26 Oct 2012
This review is from: Community Wins: 21 Thoughts on Building a Thriving Online Tribe (Kindle Edition)
Want to improve and expand the community you're developing? This book is designed to be a central tool to enable you to create an effective action plan to do just that. It's crammed full of short chapters (literally, one or two pages), each of which ends with action points which are down-to-earth, practical, and possible regardless of the size or nature of the community you're building.

I really enjoy Bryan Allain's blog, and this book is sprinkled generously with his humour, so if you don't like the blog the chances are you won't like this either, but it's undeniable that he's built a community around that very same sense of humour, and this book is filled with the little lessons he's learnt along that journey.

The book itself is only 60 pages or so, so at first glance it might not seem like you get much bang for your buck, but it's definitely one of those where you'll get back what you put in; read it cover-to-cover in an hour and you'll think you've wasted your money, but take the time out to address each action point and you'll have created a detailed, specific plan for taking your community forward.

I'd recommend this to anyone who is running some form of community, even if that community is absolutely tiny; you'll find it encouraging, funny, and a good way of helping you determine next steps.

I got this book for free after entering a competition at BryanAllain.com. I'm not required to give a positive review.
