PLANNING SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS AND EVENTS by Ann J. Boehme, AMACOM, New York City, $12.95

Independent planner Ann Boehme draws on more than 23 years in the business in this everything-you-need-to-know-about-meeting-planning book. It has enough detail to offer pointers to those who’ve been doing the job for a while, but is most appropriate for the neophyte who needs to sit down and read the easy 168 pages over the weekend, then keep the book on a shelf in the office for easy reference.

MORE SECRETS OF SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITING, compiled by Susan A. Friedmann, Aviva Publishing, Lake Placid, N.Y., $19.95
This is the second book in the “Secrets” series, in which Susan Friedmann, a speaker and self-described “trade-show coach,” packages advice from industry experts. The advice is sound, ranging from “Speeding to Market Successfully” to “Working Effectively With the International Customer,” but the two-page advertisements between chapters apparent payback for the experts’ contributions are a bit disconcerting.
