About the book: Casey McDaniel had never been so nervous in his life. In just ten minutes, The Meeting, as it would forver be known, would begin. Casey had every reason to believe that his performance over the next two hours would determine the fate of his career, his financial future, and the company he had built from scratch. “How could my life have unraveled so quickly?” he wondered.

My review: Although I am a teacher and not a business person, I lead and attend plenty of meetings. I found this book fascinating. I love the way it was written. The author used story – not just facts and commentary. Throughout the story, Lencioni gives principals for successful meetings and exposes myths – such as you always need an AGENDA. How freeing! The author brings you inside the characters’ heads and causes the reader to relate to common fears and goals. This is a short read – I read it in half a day. It is totally engaging and thought provoking. The story takes up about three-fourths of the book. The last fourth of the book is the model and written as non-fiction.

For anyone who has to attend and/or lead numerous meetings, I recommend this book. My husband recommended it to me and he is not a businessman either, but he is in ministry. The principles cross over to other lifestyles and career choices.
