"I dutifully avoid meetings whenever possible, which is pretty much always. If I was 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, The Art of Non-Conformity
"Sucked dry, worn down, numbed out: pick your metaphor. Anyway 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, Do More Great Work
"There's a big difference between talking about doing something and actually doing it. If you've ever been in a meeting whose sole purpose was to plan for another meeting, you NEED this book." --Josh Kaufman, The Personal MBA
"If you live meeting-to-meeting, this book will save your business life."--Tim Sanders, Today We Are Rich
"The typical corporate meeting makes you feel like you’re busy doing something. But as Al Pittampalli explains, meetings are a mess - an unproductive waste of time to validate the status quo. In his fascinating manifesto, Al presents a better way - the Modern Meeting - to actually move your business forward. If you want to create a culture of decisive action, get out of your nice comfortable meeting room and read this book now.” --David Meerman Scott, Real-Time Marketing & PR
"The majority of us have the same experience: at some point during the day, we lift our heads out of the haze of phone calls, emails and meetings and say, 'I need to go home so I can get some work done!' You can't get more counter-productive than that. The main reason is that meetings not only suck, but that meetings suck the life out of organizations. It doesn't have to be that way and it shouldn't. Finally, there's a shining light for all of us in Al Pittampalli's Read This Before Our Next Meeting. Unfortunately, the book was named poorly. It should be called, Read This Now! Please!" --Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image and author, Six Pixels of Separation
