"A very good presentation with lots of useful information. As someone who has been in book clubs for more than 15 years and is now in six, i really appreciated the information and suggestions you shared. All parts were interesting and relevant, some to my present experience and some to my past."

"It was excellent and covered everything I was interested in - size of groups, how to choose books, how to deal with problems. I especially liked the resources you mentioned about holding respectful conversations. I liked seeing statistics on book clubs you researched, and some of the topic/themes that clubs use to select books. Thank you!"
