Book Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting

Stop Wasting Time and Make Your Meetings Matter

This applies to your business meetings, civic organizations, charities, or your church meetings. Meetings have become mediocre and just a time suck. You can now join the meeting revolution.

If meetings aren’t work, what are they? They are soul-suckers. They extinguish original thought. They turn a job into a marathon, a career into nothing but chair-warming.

Since its publication last week, Read This Before Our Next Meeting rose to the #1 most popular book on the Kindle Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting in the world. It’s been downloaded by thousands of people (thanks to the sponsor, Citrix) and is sure to help hundreds of organizations change what they do all day. New York Times bestselling author of Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting, Tim Sanders, says “If you live meeting-to-meeting, this book will save your business life.”

al pittampalli 150x144 Review~Read This Before Our Next MeetingAl Pittampalli, author of the book, is helping companies, organizations and individuals take back their days by having productive, decision-supporting (as opposed to decision-avoiding) meetings. If you’ve found yourself looking at the clock during a meeting recently, wishing for a memo instead of a 45-minute conference call, or wondering how to get real work done in your company, see what Al and his team of meeting culture warriors are up to below. Join to become your organization’s meeting culture warrior.

Join Al for a live two-part webinar series on how to solve your company’s meeting problem. Hosted by Citrix, the webinar will teach you to conduct meetings that support decision-making and action, introduce change in your company, and how to instill (not kill) the sense of urgency in your organization.


“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: Set Your Own Rules, Live the Life You Want, and Change the World Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting

“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: Stop the Busywork. Start the Work That Matters. Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting

“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: Master the Art of Business Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting

“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 and PR: How to Instantly Engage Your Market, Connect with Customers, and Create Products that Grow Your Business Now (Wiley Desktop Editions) Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting

“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: Everyone Is Connected. Connect Your Business to Everyone. Review~Read This Before Our Next Meeting
