Rogelberg, researcher and consultant to some of the world's most successful companies, draws from extensive research, analytics and data mining, and survey interviews with over 5,000 employees across a range of industries to share the proven practices and techniques that help managers and employees enhance the quality of their meetings.

Great book for two reasons: (1) the suggestions are well-organized to make them easy to find and implement, and (2) the suggestions are based in actual research findings! I'd strongly recommend buying the physical copy of the book for the tools at the end (and to more easily peruse each chapter's takeaways), but I enjoyed listening to the audiobook as a way to get a good overview of the science-based recommendations offered. Dr. Rogelberg has thought through all different types of meetings, including teleconferences and walking meetings, and I think everyone who has to run a meeting will find something of use here.
