5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to the Coworking Industry. 22 March 2016

Thanks to Ramon Suarez for putting this book together. My business partner and I have a Coworking space in a Austin, TX suburb. This book was a huge help to us as we were building our space. The Coworking industry is so new and filled with "Experts" and "Consultants" that it is refreshing to have someone lay out the details and advice.

Best advice in the book, "Buy the best internet connection you can get and pay up for comfortable chairs". This yields happy Coworkers on both parts.

Great Job Ramon and congrats on the new baby!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like talking to Ramon Suarez! 14 May 2014

For over one year I have been gathering information from blogs, websites, and news articles while planning on opening a coworking space in my community. It has been an arduous task because coworking is a new industry and there is not a lot of information that is orginized on the process of starting up a coworking community.

I decided to attend GCUC '14 (a global coworking conference) in Kansas City and had the pleasure of meeting and having dinner with Ramon Suarez because we ended up at the same restaurant by chance . I had followed Ramon on twitter for almost 8 months reading almost every coworking article he would share to continue to gather information about coworking. Our small talk during dinner quickly turned to Ramon sharing an abundance of practical and easy to implement advice on everything coworking with me.

We only had about 1 hour to talk and chew our food and I was trying to absorb all the information I could from Ramon and his experience and expertise. When I returned home from our trip I decided to buy the kindle version of his book and to my surprise it was as if we were continuing the conversation from dinner. All the practical advise and stories he had been sharing were all organized in his book with tables, charts, and lists of useful advice and suggestions. Had this book been around 8 months ago I think that my journey to open a coworking space would have felt a lot more organized and given me better direction. The Coworking Handbook is a great book and guide that I will keep close to me as a reference as I venture into the coworking world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have resource for anyone starting or running a coworking space, business accelerator or makerspace 22 April 2015

The Coworking Handbook is a must have resource for anyone starting or running a coworking space, business accelerator, makerspace or any other community oriented place, space or activity. Ramon's one of the leaders of the rapidly growing global coworking movement and his deep expertise comes through across the topics covered in the book.

I also think folks thinking of or working in coworking spaces will find this book useful. By learning more about how spaces operate, coworking space members will be able to better leverage the networking and business opportunities available to space members.
