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?....

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 been elected as a first time Mayor, I was totally confused why, no matter how hard I pushed, nothing was improving. Reading this book gave me a "light bulb" moment. Mr Clemmer captured the real reason for the roadblocks and may have saved me years of frustration.
I am buying a copy for each of my councillors.

Doug Griffiths and Kelly Griffiths outline common issues which hold back communities from reaching their potential. I have used one chapter, in particular, to help animate, inform and shine light on safe drinking water issues in rural Canada as part of a one-time, multi-million dollar rural development capacity strategy. I have observed Doug Griffiths at a public speaker too. He is a compelling public speaker in the finest tradition of an inspirational philosopher king and can speak to the core things local leaders need to consider in sustaining their community. He also delivers these messages in a capacity as a thoughtful, "been there, done that" multi-term elected official and senior Government of Alberta Cabinet minister. ~ MJ Aherne is a Canadian-based Certified Management Consultant (CMC) and policy and strategy consultant
