The guide that proves your meetings don't have to suck!
There's a big dull elephant in the boardroom: this meeting! Most of the millions of meetings held in the world today are a monumental waste of time and talent. Worse still, most of the so-called solutions and books for boring meetings are twice as boring. Boring Meetings Suck provides tips and tactics to deliver "Get-In, Get-It-Done, or Get-Out" style meetings, while also tackling what most prefer to avoid; that you don't have to BE in charge of a meeting to TAKE charge of a meeting.
This entertaining and take-no-prisoners guide is full of easily deployed SRDs - Suckification Reduction Devices - that will help you make your next meeting both efficient and effective.
Empowers attendees to politely speak up and get a meeting back on track, or graciously get out, without being fired.
Shows how hosts can capitalize on technology, learning to crowd-source problems and increase participation.
Defines surefire methods to get meetings to start and end on time and not have the speaker read the slides.
STOPS over-invitation syndrome.

This book will not fail to disappoint.
Different script. Different speaker. Otherwise just fine.
I was hoping it at least would be fun to listen to. The book is extremely tedious. It really took me by surprise. There are so many other Audible books that are worth the time.
The book is so lacking in substance. Much of it is difficult to believe. I don't think that there was any research done. Lines like "buckle your seat belt and hold on to your shorts" are so over promising. I need to get some antidepression meds.
Boring book and useless
If I have found useful recommendations to avoid boring meetings. But no, the book is full of useless tips that in the real world no one would apply. For example, remove the chairs of the meeting room. Verify the dimensions of the meeting room. Prepare for meetings (the day is full of meetings, and I should spend more time preparing for them?).
I have not read 1000 of books on meetings, but this one really sucks.
The end (which I didn't hear because it was too boring, I stop hearing it at the beginning of the last chapter).
All that is useless, that means, an important part of the book.
