Interested in your thoughts on the book “The art of Community” by Jono Bacon

Has anyone read and rates “The art of Community” by Jono Bacon ?

I stumbled upon this book via some of my colleagues – Jono tweets over at @jonobacon and he is the community manager of open-source operating system Ubuntu.  Jono maintains an interesting blog here.

Here’s Jono talking about how me builds community and about his book:


Today is the launch of the book “The Perfect Gift for a Man – Stories about re-inventing Manhood”

Today is a very special day for me, as it marks the launch of a new collaborative book I have contributed to in support of an important cause – improving the mental health of young men.   Special mention should go to the hard work of local Sydney bloggers Gavin Heaton and Mark Pollard, and to the 30 people from a diverse range of backgrounds and experience who have written stories for the book.

The book is called The Perfect Gift for a Man – 30 stories about reinventing manhood.  Here’s the front cover:

You can preview and order the book here.

Some of the contributors have recorded a personal video message about the book.

This is a very important cause – please tell your communities about this book, and consider buying a copy for a man in your life who may benefit from it.

For more background on this project, the Mornings with Kerrie-Ann show interviewed Gavin Heaton and Steve Crombie here:
