To the point and practical.

As someone who has been responsible for running a number of communities of practice, this book was a breath of fresh air.

It's full of clear, easy to implement advice to add structure to communities with very little fluff. I look forward to recommending it to other community leaders.

Good ideas and advice, clear and concise, useful I'm sure, but I found the format utterly boring.
As a companion/checklist for a training/seminar I guess it could replace taking your own notes (apart from the fact that taking your own notes, by hand, would reinforce your learning).

Emily's book is a good primer on the elements and principles needed to build a community of practice. I would be interested in a volume that goes a bit more into depth, for some of the parts at least ( like rules for organizing the backlog, getting people more engaged with the community, more tips about community governance etc).

Useful small book with lots of references. Can't be very deep in 80 pages. But I got out of it what I needed

Great short book on how to build a successful community of practice. It has many practical tips and some great models (e.g. stages of the community and what to do in each stage).
