This little book is an excellent introduction to Peacemaking Circles. It is NOT a "How To" book. It does provide a great introduction to Circles for the reader. It also seems to be a helpful resource for introducing others to the topic and helping groups, organizations, and communities consider getting more information and training and possibly using Circles for conflict resolution, to promote dialogue around difficult topics, discovery and learning of different perspectives, alternative sentencing in courts, alternative discipline in schools, etc.

The book is well written, clear and concise. The author is knowledgeable and has much practical (and inspirational) experience. I enjoyed the brief stories and examples used in the book, which seemed fitting for the subject.

I did find it somewhat redundant in how it introduced the core elements of Circles in the second chapter, and then attempted to explain them further in a separate chapter (c 6). I didn't find much additional info in the chapter on the core elements, though some expansion of ideas previously introduced was helpful. I wondered if the limited space in the book could have been better used to cover additional content (The "Little Books of Justice & Peacebuilding" series seems to be wisely limited to 90 pages). I was glad that the author did address various challenges to implementing Circles in the book.

This is a book that should be in everyone's backpack. It makes sense and all humans will be able to relate to it, if just given a try.

Eh, not too informative. Very basic. I can get more information some where else. It took me literally 5 min. to read. A skim tells you all about the book.
