First of all, what a great title! As someone who has endured hundreds…no, make that thousands…of meetings that were deadly, the title caught my eye immediately. The content did not let me down. Lencioni’s “fable” books (e.g., The Five Dysfunctions of a Team; The Five Temptations of a CEO; The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive) have the potential to be forced, but I don’t find them to read that way. I wanted to keep reading this book (and his others) because I wanted to know what happened. Not all business books pull me through in that way! Excellent book if you run meetings or if you attend them.
