If I could only have 10 professional books, this book would be one of them. I had to buy this book for a class and groused about the price--pricey for business book its size. But then I started reading it. I learned things about setting up a meeting that no one had ever taught me--such as where to put the most controversial agenda items.

Perhaps this is where this book comes in, it challenges those of us who think we have been there and done that. Just the other night while on a school board, I watched a principal who has been in innumerable meetings, commit meeting mistakes--meeting familiarity does not a meeting master make. Had that principal read this book, I don't think he would have acted the way he did. But this book gave me insights into what was going on, and then the knowledge of how to lead the group back to where the principal had wanted to go to begin with--and in this meeting, I was just a board member, not the chairperson.

The applications of this book are far reaching--really to any group that uses meetings. I have used this book in school and church settings with great success. In another situation, the principles of this book helped me walk a group through a very controversial point. Believe it or not, the group was ready to split, but using the steps laid out in the book, I was able to deal with the controversy and by the end of the 2nd meeting, people who were once at each others' throats, were hugging each other. I would have paid double the price for this book for the results I got.

I found useful information on every page of this book. Modern business is round after round of meetings. There are too many meetings and far too few that are really useful. Dr. Tropman helps us focus on when and why and HOW to have meetings. He also gives us tools to decide what goes into the meeting and what to leave out.
Having wasted too many days of my life in these modern torture cells, this book came as a breath of fresh are. It is not only useful, it is a delight to read and implement.

It is amazing what the real cost of meetings are. I'm not just talking about the aggregate cost to the business of the attendees salaries. What about the opportunity cost of the inability of a group to form a decision, let alone a good one?

It is within this context that John Tropman describes how to effectively and efficiently manage meetings. Mind you, this is not a book devoted to anecdotes and examples of bad meetings. No, this little gem delivers step-by-step instructions for creating a setting in which successful decisions are made. For example, most people will acknowledge the necessity of having an agenda, but have you thought about how topics should be structured within the agenda to enable quality decisions? When isn't the democratic ideal of one person, one vote a good approach to settle an issue? I was able to immediately use many of the items outlined in this book to improve meetings that I chair.

On the negative side, Part V, which is new with the second edition, seemed tacked on and out of place with the rest of the book. A minor point perhaps, but the last few pages were somewhat of a let down when compared to the first part. However, don't let that stop you from buying this book and ending the scourge of bad meetings
