"Michelle Boule has done a great job of describing the benefits and
challenges of unconferences, and how to successfully run one. But
she doesn't stop there--she extends the unconference idea into
classrooms and organizations for corporate and student learning
opportunities, too. Definitely a must-read!" --David Lee King,
author, Designing the Digital Experience
"Mob Rule Learning is an eye-opening look at how and why we learn, and is absolutely the seminal text on Unconferencing." --J. P. Porcaro, founder, 8bitlibrary.com and National Library Unconference Day
