I found this book incredibly informative . At least when it comes to basics, I can be confident in saying that the material is in here. Concepts are outlined, and backed with current examples. It is very comprehensive.

This book has some structure to it, and does build on previous chapters, but I find structure is ultimately this books greatest weakness. All of the necessary material is in there, but it's sometimes difficult to sort the information that has been given. I have had to go through the material a few times in order to be able to understand it. It can be frustrating.

Ultimately, I would recommend this book to anyone that needs a framework to build upon in the field of event planning. This book will give you all the information you need to get started.

The MBA Book Of Event Planning Jan. 31 2010

The MBA Book Of Event Planning

This book gets 5-stars. It is the best book about event planning in the market place today. We have been in the event planning business for 15-years and the author shows us some tricks and tips that we never dreamed of before. Not an inexpensive book, but worth every dime that you will pay for it. If I owned the rights to this excellent book, I would increase the size of the book to catalog size and spiral bind it so that is could lay flat when opened. I would also create a wide margin on one side of the page for user notes.

But all in all, a great guide to putting on an event.

Event Planning Book Aug. 4 2009
By Bridget Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am still reading this book to help me improve my event planning skills, but so far I find her information detailed and to the point. I also like that she talks alittle bit about all different types of events and the issues/problems with each one.

great book on the step by step process of event planning Sept. 12 2011
By Aaron Miltenberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent resource for new or experienced event planners. The author does an excellent job of explaining how corporate events and private parties are organized and executed. I would recommend this text to anyone looking to get into those areas. Unfortunately, there is not much about college and university event planning, which is specifically what I am using it for.
