This was a book I read for the "office" book club. While the title sounds provocative, it was the type of book that makes you think, "Gee, did they really have to write a whole book about this?" Or is most of this just plain common sense? I'm just saying. It's not rocket science.

Had a few laughs reading this book. It is a fun book, unfortunately also a sad one. A lot of the problems with meetings addressed in this book, many of us face daily. Meetings are mostly just a waste of time. This book has pkenty of advice to make meetings a worthwhile experience.

Jon Petz provides an irreverent look at common meeting problems along with potentially very useful solutions. This book would be useful for someone who wanted to skim through the contents to extract a few gems.

In terms of criticism, two items come immediately to mind:

The only thing that sucks is this book. There was no advice that could be used in most offices that have a viable HR function. Waste of time!
