Interesting research paired with practical advice on a topic that affects us all -- Meetings! There are so many business books out there that espouse opinion or anecdotal evidence. Here is a book with advice based on actual scientific findings. The topic is relevant to everyone. We all have to either attend or lead meetings. We all hate them, but what I discovered from this book is there is tons of research out that can help us do it better. The author provides lots of fascinating statistics about meetings (blown away by how much time and money we waste in meetings) along with results from all sorts of studies done all over the world. The best part is that he offers practical advice on how to make meetings better based on all this research. Everyone should read this so meetings can stop being so miserable.
