    I had heard about this book on a conference call and immediately downloaded it to my Kindle. Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was simply a collection of stories when I bought it; as I've now discovered I'd have been better off searching for his original book, The Great Good Place. I enjoyed the first handful of stories in this book but then found myself reading basically the same thing over and over; I got to about 40% (reading more and more quickly as I went to see when I'd get to the next ne [...]

    Where Do You Go for Community that's not Work or Home?This is a wonderful book. It clued me in to something I've been yearning for without realizing what it was--a community. The examples provided range from coffeeshops to restaurants to a garden center to a gym to a barbershop to a prison (yes, really). These places seem to be disappearing quickly in our sterilized, cookie-cutter society, so if you have one or manage to find one, hang onto it!

    stories of varying quality about inspiring 3rd places - great for getting more of a feel of what it takes to be a third place (and how broad that category is), but not all of the stories are equally a pleasure to read. some are superficial and self-serving and don't get at the heart of what it is that makes a great third place.

    Everyone who wants to create a sense of community in their town or neighborhood needs to read this book. The face of libraries across the US is changing and the Third Place might just be a coffee shop or community center, not necessarily a library. Librarians need to make their libraries welcoming as the third place in their community.

    I read this after Ray Oldenburg's classic "The Great Good Place." This is a collection of stories and cases of Third Places across the U.S. Quick to read; also I must note that this was compiled 14 years ago and several of the places included have since failed/shut down.

    Found it interesting to begin with, but the stories got old after awhile. They just seemed to repeat themselves. Same storie different location. Prison best example of third place!
