Taking minutes of meetings was a great book to read for being a new admin assistant and did not have any minute taking experience. It will be a very useful tool on my desk. Would highly recommend.

Very useful!! Jan. 14 2011
By Rachel J. Maley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is proof of the old adage that good things come in small packages. The information provided for the notetaker at meetings is so useful! It includes not just tips on how to take notes, but also how to schedule meetings, keep track of who is (and is not) attending, keeping in touch with the meeting chairperson, and lots of other information that make taking minutes so much easier! I highly recommend this for anyone who gets tapped for taking minutes, scheduling meetings, setting agendas, etc.

Skills for every aspect of taking the minutes - Wonderful! July 11 2012
By Kelli Forbes - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have just finished reading this book and am a big fan of it. I was thrown into the role of meeting minute-taker over a decade ago and have still learned quite a bit from this 150-page book. From formatting the agenda and minutes to how to listen and what to listen for, the phrasing of the minutes, where the focus should be, and even how to project confidence when you might not feel it as "just a secretary" in a roomful of executives. There is quite a lot to learn in this quick read. If you are a minute-taker, do yourself a favor and grab this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful little book, however the content is from the UK and some of the verbiage is not relevent to the US. I have this on my desk as a reference only, but I would recommend it to others.
