Product Description: Think back to some of the meetings you've been to or maybe you've chaired in the last three months. How many of them left you feeling that you didn't want to be there ... maybe nor did anybody else? We rely so heavily on meetings to communicate with one another, resolve problems, share ideas, negotiate deals and yet when they don't work, they can be worse than useless. Stop taking unproductive meetings for granted! 50 Ways to Liven Up Your Meetings is a proven collection of techniques, activities and games that you can use in any meeting to help: ¢ Raise the energy levels of everyone involved and bring the meeting alive - from the start or when people start to flag; ¢ Enable the different people in the group to communicate and work with each other more effectively; ¢ Tackle problems in the group methodically but creatively; and ¢ Focus on the outcomes of the meeting that you want to achieve and make them happen. Each of the 50 Ways is clearly signposted and simply described, which means that you can prepare yourself in advance of a meeting and introduce an exercise or a technique, if and when you need it, with a minimum of fuss. The majority of the exercises are equally suited as planned structured interventions that you introduce as part of an ongoing programme for improving regular meetings such as team meetings, project group meetings or problem-solving sessions. The collection is very varied, to give you the widest possible 'toolkit' of solutions and includes brain teasers and lateral thinking exercises, humorous interludes, ways of introducing a new group or of creating rapport and techniques for analysing data or action planning. There are tools that focus on the way the group is working during the meeting, as well as techniques for tackling the content - for helping to generate new ways of looking at a problem if you get stuck. 50 Ways to Liven Up Your Meetings will help you to inject variety, fun and increased professionalism int

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
