    Alan Barker knows just about everything about meetings, and in this somewhat academic discussion of the ubiquitous business meeting, he outlines it all for you ¿ quite literally, as the book consists almost entirely of headings, bullet points, sidebars and drills. Using this easy-to-read structure, Barker presents a variety of insightful ways to look at problems and inspire creative thinking. We recommend this book to managers who wonder why their meetings go on for so long yet fail to lead to action. Meeting-wise, it leaves no stone unturned.
