Brilliant way to present this because we can all see our own community mistakes: shop elsewhere, ignore values and needs, disenfranchise your youth and stop listening to your seniors.

He presents with humour and practicality.

This book will be making the rounds in my community, because we don't want to kill our community.

Having volunteered in small communities for over 40 years and working within small community financial and economic development sectors for another 30 years I found this book to be a great articulation of 13 key ways to succeed in killing a community.

I agree that attitude is the key to success or failure. The quote "whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are right" basically puts it in a nutshell.

This is a great example of reverse engineering a problem and a must read for anyone who would wish to not only improve their community but also their relationships and their life.

An easy and quick read that will challenge you to change your attitude as well as improve your community and your life.

Now, which one will I work on first?....

A must read for all Elected Officials July 21 2013
By Bowtiesue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Doug Griffiths hits all 13 ways right on the nail. His insight as to the ways, opens ones eyes to look deeper into your own community's soul. Once you understand who and identify their way to kill your community, you can better prepare to work around the roadblocks that are set up. I applaud this relatively young politician to put his findings into this book that will assist all of us other politicians in our jobs. Thank you.

Save your small community! June 12 2011
By SmallTownLibrarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This little book could change your community. No, there's not anything earth-shattering inside, but the no-nonsense, down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is approach is so appealing that it gets people talking... and that's the first step toward community change. Read it. Then get everyone in your town to read it. Watch things change.

I would recommend this book to anyone who cares about their community and who has any kind of responsibility as a volunteer, elected official or Chamber of Commerce Director.
