Fast smooth delivery. The book is as advertised and a great deal. I purchased this book to see what a guild master's role is and how much work it would take to run a guild. There is some good information in this book. I would purchase from this seller again.

I've read this book twice and can say that it is an absolute must-have for any player considering guild leadership or wanting to know the "best practices" of successful leadership. The author has a wealth of experience and had to learn -- at least initially -- under the pressure of having a leadership role thrust upon him. It turned out to be a blessing, however, as it is very evident that he flourished in that position. Mr. Trzonkowski covers everything a new guild leader will need to consider or will likely encounter during their tenure. He provides real life examples and suggestions, as well as provides samples of the suggested materials he recommends creating with every guild's inception.

It's also worth noting that much of what is included here is also relevant outside of MMORPGs. Much of what it takes to be a good guild leader is congruous to leadership in professional roles, as well. Make no mistake, leading a guild is first about being a good leader with *people* rather than players.

Highly recommended!

If you follow MMORPG blogs at all, chances are you know Adam "Ferrel" Trzonkowski at his site, Epic Slant ([...]). Adam's been sharing his experiences as both a guild leader and an MMO player for many years, and it was great to finally be able to read a concise edition of his heady wisdom and down-to-earth practicality with The Guild Leader's Companion.

Adam strikes a good tone in the book between leadership ideals and real-game examples. Being a good guild leader isn't just showing up to have fun or go on a power trip, but to know how to work with people to bring out their best -- and Adam tells us exactly how to do this.

Great, easy read! You'll also want to read an interview he did with Massively about his book:

This book is a great read, it covers a ton of issues that you will experience as a guild leader or even if you are a supervisor in a real job. It will give you advise on compromise (I Love the "make sure nobody wins if you compromise" paragraph). It makes sense, it answers a ton of questions and even if you are an old pro at guild leading, it will give a different look at things that you may not have thought of before.

If you are new to guild leadership, it will give you the tools to know what you are getting yourself in to. It has helped me think outside the box when dealing with my own guilds issues.
