"There is no other book out there on unconferences for the library world. Library or library association staff who are organizing or thinking about organizing an event would do well to consult this book."
Stephen Francoeur (Baruch College)
"Lawson's guide offers an excellent overview of the participant-driven conference and practical advice for anyone interested in organizing such an event. Even for librarians who are not planning to host a library camp or unconference in the near future, this book is an intriguing and informative read for those who are curious about the concept and how it works."
