This was an enjoyable listen. The "fable" was interesting. The facts were applicable. I will be able to make direct applications and use the principles to improve efficiency and communication...

I listened to this story twice and found it exactly what I was looking for, as a recipe for creating compelling meetings with my staff of 16 managers. The model is simple to implement and creates immediate results, from interesting short weekly tactical meetings to monthly & quarterly strategic discussions with active debate. I also recommend reading Patrick's other title on the "Five Dysfunctions of a Team" as it melds very well with this one to build overall team strength with robust communications and a trust ethic that gets results.

What made the experience of listening to Death by Meeting the most enjoyable?
Well crafted story that had me thinking through each topic with the author.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Death by Meeting?
The CNN Headline news meeting - I now use this one in all regular meetings.
Which character – as performed by Jack Arthur – was your favourite?
No favourite character - all good and the diversity of characters is spot on with respect to any company
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The idea of a CEO always worrying about what everyone thinks and getting tied in knots trying to keep everyone happy.
Any additional comments?
The Advantage takes some of the key parts of this and other books by the author however I like being able to read/listen to both.

Im a big fan of the author but i have to say i struggled with this book. I found it a little slow and it took too long to get the central points.
