Published by Thriftbooks. History and information. This is probably the best book I have bought on the topic in the last year. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 10 years ago. I enjoyed reading this book; it's clear and well written, as you might expect from a title in the "Dummies" range.

For Dummies is an extensive series of nce books which are intended to present non-intimidating guides for readers new to the various topics covered. The books are an example of a media franchise, consistently sporting a distinctive cover-usually yellow and black with a triangular-headed cartoon figure known as the "Dummies Man", and an informal, blackboard-style logo.

Corporations have finally realized the value of collaboration tools for knowledge sharing and Wiki is the open source technology for creating collaborative Web sites, as either a public site on the Internet or on a private intranet site Shows readers how to set up Wikis in a corporate setting or on a personal site so that users can retrieve information, post information, and edit the content Covers everything from choosing a Wiki engine to administration and maintenance Discusses the advantages of using Wiki in a corporate environment, which companies such as Microsoft, Boeing, Disney, and Motorola have already discovered
This provides a solid overview of the history, general functions, and common uses of Wikis, and for that I am glad that I read it. One thing that I didn't consider until after I bought it -- and was using a few wikis already -- was that a great deal of the information was engine-specific. PBWiki was a common example throughout the book, but I don't use PBWiki, and I don't like the interface (I guess I got used to Wikispaces, which works perfectly for me). So although there was a great deal of good information about what I can do with a wiki, so much of the how wasn't useful to me, since I'll have to go learn the particulars of my engine of choice, rather than the ones in the book.
I obviously have been aware of the wiki thing for some time, but have not had a need to get involved in the process of creation and management of a purpose built wiki until now. This book brought me up to speed and filled the knowledge gap so I have been able to take the plunge with some confidence.

I suspect that the book needs an update as some o the sites mentioned are no longer, and ultimately I have used a wiki plugin for WordPress to get the wiki going that I needed, and that idea is not in the book, but the concepts and the ideas all move quite happily.

I am very happy I bought to book, and anyone who wants to explore the wiki wiki world from the point of creating or managing a wiki and feels a knowledge gap is likely to find this book quite useful.

I learned everything I needed to know out of the first three chapters. Also has a nice chapter on managing a wiki. It's very clear, and an very approachable how-to book. Once you get the basics from this book, you'll discover that building a wiki is really pretty intuitive. But this is a good way to get started.
Wikis For Dummies This is a good book if you are looking for a guide to get started. It covers the basics for starting the Wiki process and explains different ways one can use a wiki for work.

I found it helpful.
Although I found a few hints that moved me forward with my mediawiki use, the book is very dated. Some of the wiki based companies mentioned no longer exist.
Book starts from the beginning, and takes from history to putting things on Wiki. It is a really easy to follow guide.
My review of the book Wikis for Dummies; I found this book to be just what I need to enhance my understanding of the Wiki movement. My current work involves creating a company wiki and this book was very helpful. My thanks to the authors, they made the subject matter easy to read and understand. They also provided helpful hints on how to inspire others to join in the creation of our wiki project.
I am new to the whole Wiki thing and thought that this book would be helpful. I found it frustrating because they kept pushing you to a site where you could have your Wiki hosted. Everything was geared for if you were having your Wiki hosted there. For example the way the code works at the recommened hosting site was explained in detail, but didn't work on my site.

Finally I saw that one of the writers owns that Wiki hosting site they kept pushing in the book.

I don't need a hosting site. I need to know how to create a page which is why I bought the book! I found it really frustrating and unhelpful. Returned it the same day.
