"A bold new approach to how we gather that will transform the ways we spend our time together--at work, at home, in our communities, and beyond. In The Art of Gathering, Priya Parker argues that the gatherings in our lives are lackluster and unproductive--which they don't have to be. We rely too much on routine and the conventions of gatherings when we should focus on distinctiveness and the people involved. At a time when coming together is more important than ever, Parker sets forth a human-centered approach to gathering that will help everyone create meaningful, memorable experiences, large and small, for work and for play. Drawing on her expertise as a facilitator of high-powered gatherings around the world, Parker takes us inside events of all kinds to show what works, what doesn't, and why. She investigates a wide array of gatherings--conferences, meetings, a courtroom, a flash-mob party, an Arab-Israeli summer camp--and explains how simple, specific changes can invigorate any group experience. The result is a book that's both journey and guide, full of exciting ideas with real-world applications. The Art of Gathering will forever alter the way you look at your next meeting, industry conference, dinner party, and backyard barbecue--and how you host and attend them"--… (mais)

I kept putting off this book, thinking I was never in the mood to read or listen about how to conduct better meetings. But after reading a library blog post that recommended this book as a tool to make library programs more purposeful, I downloaded it immediately. (The audiobook narrator, Bernadette Dunne, is my favorite).

This book is so much more than I dismissed it for. At the root, it's about honing in on the true, deep purpose of a gathering. And if the purpose the host comes up with is mediocre, then the gathering isn't worth it. Gathering with purpose engages guests and lets them leave with a greater sense of their humanness in relation to others. It's all about relationships.

The Art of Gathering is full of pragmatic tips for making gatherings better, like not starting or ending your gathering with logistics or sponsorships, because those are the moments that people are expecting the most from you. Another tip is to not be a "chill" host, and to take the reigns in facilitating people's experience in your presence, even at the expense of looking aggressive or bossy. I will definitely be revisiting this book in the future. ( )

There were a few good tidbits; but, overall, the book was repetitive/excessive. I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid on some of the rules for social gatherings. Sometimes, my purpose really is just to eat/drink/visit with my friends in a casual setting and that's OK! [But, what do I know? I'm only almost an entire adult older than the author. 😂] ( )

In The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters Priya Parker makes an impassioned case for creating more meaningful gatherings and walks you through each step, from having a purpose to the closing, and everything in between. Using myriad examples from her own life and professional practice, Parker illustrates the ways in which you as the host can create a memorable occasion, whether it's your next business meeting or a social hour with friends.

Almost anyone can get something out of this book. If you're human and not a hermit, you most likely gather in some way over some occasion at some point - weddings, funerals, hosting a few friends to dinner - these are all gatherings. In business, a meeting, a conference - these are gatherings too. Parker takes general principles that you can apply in almost any situation. She talks about having a specific purpose to the gathering, and using that to make decisions about where it is located and how you structure the event. From there, she uses her expertise to explain ways in which you can make a more meaningful, memorable gathering: but unlike most books on gatherings, she's less interested in logistics than in people. I liked that she includes examples of times she didn't get it right. She's not setting herself up as a perfect person who's got it all down; she's learning too, and she's here to explain what she's learned and why she believes in doing things the way she lays it out. I'm hoping to put some of this into practice in some of the gatherings I'm involved in personally and professionally. ( )

When I finished this book, I smiled. It was as enjoyable as it was informative which is close to perfection for me in a book. There was so much I knew but did not know about “The Art of Gathering”. She filled in all the missing pieces in an awesome way. ( )
