Publisher's Summary

You know those subtle tricks your coworkers are all guilty of? The constant nodding, pretend concentration, useless rhetorical questions? These tricks make them seem like they know what they're doing when in fact they have no clue. This behavior is so ingrained, so subtle, and so often mistaken for true intelligence that identifying it, calling it out, or compiling it into an exhaustive digest has never been attempted. Until now.

Complete with examples and scenarios, 100 Tricks gives you actionable ways to use words like actionable in order to sound smart. Every type of meeting is covered, from general meetings where you stopped paying attention almost immediately to one-on-one meetings you zoned out on to impromptu meetings you were painfully subjected to at the last minute. It's all here.

Find an easy-to-digest trick guiding you on:

  • How to nail the big meeting by pacing and nodding
  • Most effective ways to listen to your coworkers while still completely ignoring them
  • The key to making your presentations "interactive"

If you hadn't noticed these behaviors before, you will see them now - from your colleagues, your managers, and soon yourself. Each trick is a mirror to the reality of what happens in meetings, told in the form of hilariously bad advice - advice that you might just want to take. But probably not. But maybe.

Funny and relatable.

I recognized every meeting I've ever been to. The author has made it impossible for me to sit through another meeting without smirking or laughing out loud at the gamesmanship.

Add some humor awareness to your day

This is a great quick laugh and nice break from super serious audiobook land. It's full of great laughs regarding tech culture and team interactions. Lighten up your workplace experience and enjoy this sarcastic treat.

Funny.

Even though it was satirical, it actually had some useful tips in there that you can use.

I struggled with this. I should have read reviews.

I struggled to get through this book. I actually skipped several chapters. I should have read the reviews or listened to the sample.

didn't finish

Not what I expected. What I did listen to seemed schemish. A more accurate title might be, how to coast by with minimal real effort.

Hilarious!

Been on both sides. Easy distraction to take up some time otherwise wasted, because if you do sit through meetings, listening to this will make you laugh and then think about what you really could do to improve the meetings you can't get out of...

Terrible, terrible, terrible

A cute idea poorly executed. Dilbert is 100 times better. Don't waste your time.
