I thought I knew (almost) everything about seminars, until I read Len Wood's book. I'm a seasoned seminar leader, in face-to-face and the virtual world, and I found this book exceptionally thought-provoking, motivating, and relevant to today's issues. Although the book is comprehensive in scope, it is easy to read because the writing style is friendly and the pages are visually appealing. I have especially enjoyed the quotations that start each chapter (especially chapters 4 and 10) - for me, they cut to the core in refocusing me on what it takes to be successful as a "seminar person" and also the things I need to do to prevent problems from occuring. If there is pressure on you to succeed with seminars, this is a must read. If you are just starting out in the field, purchasing this book and making it your friend could be the best investment you can make in your professional life.
