"Compromise, status quo, deficient organization–like a physician’s bag overflowing with powerful medicines, Al Pittampalli’s new book delivers the prescription for an organization suffering from meeting malaise."
—Marshall Goldsmith, author of the New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
"If you find yourself withering away in endless meetings, if your organization suffers from consensus constipation, if you can’t seem to get a decision made this centur y, read this book."
—Russell Bishop, senior editor at large, Huffington Post, and author of Workarounds That Work
"I dutifully avoid meetings whenever possible, which is pretty much always. If I were to go to meetings, though, I’d want Al to run them. And if that wasn’t possible, I’d send this book to everyone else ahead of time and wait for them to cancel the meeting or run it exactly how this book describes."
—Chris Guillebeau, author of The Art of Non-Conformity
"Sucked dry, worn down, numbed out: pick your metaphor. Any way you cut it, bad meetings are killing you and your organization. This book will be your shield and sword to get your life back. Now we just need to sort out email."
—Michael Bungay Stanier, author of Do More Great Work --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
