"Get Together tells the stories and reveals the insights of community-building. Don't start one without reading this book."
--Robert Wang, founder of Instant Pot

"As a leader of a social-impact organization, I found Get Together
to be helpful in thinking about how we could do better at building and
cultivating the community around IDEO.org. I'd recommend Get Together to anyone organizing or participating in communities, personally or professionally."
--Jocelyn Wyatt, CEO of IDEO.org

"Get Together
is a book about our most valuable resource--people--and how to get them
together. Sounds simple; but then all great ideas are."--Craig Pearce, co-writer of the films Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, and The Great Gatsby

"In
a time of growing social isolation and disconnection from what matters
most, Bailey, Kevin, and Kai offer a vision for how the world could be.
Read it!"
--Casper ter Kuile, co-author of the How We Gather report


"This book encapsulates in a 90-minute read what took me 20 years to
learn at Surfrider. It provides clear guidance on how to methodically
build a thriving community."
--Dr. Chad Nelsen, CEO of the Surfrider Foundation

"Get Together
is a must-read. As a community builder, I have an immense appreciation
for the way Bailey, Kai, and Kevin broke things down."--Claire Wasserman, founder of Ladies Get Paid

"As
the producer of the first Star Wars Celebration, I had to work with my
team and Lucasfilm to build an event that was worthy of the worldwide
Star Wars community. I wish I had had a book like Get Together back then--I would've devoured it to gain insight on building my community to give me a head start!"
--Dan Madsen, former president of the Official Star Wars Fan Club

"At a time when the extremes have become the norm and acute polarization is on the rise, Get Together is a much-needed road map to building authentic communities for good, which can ultimately outcompete the bad."--Sasha Havlicek, CEO of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue
