Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've not finished the book yet (as I received it two days ago) but can already state that this is the most important offering for meeting planners in years. More than an instructional work on meeting logistics, this builds on the 2007 book Meeting Architecture - A Manifesto to demonstrate both the need and the techniques of implementing the philosophy of that book. If you have been in the planning field for decades (as I have) you will learn as much from this book as a newcomer to the field - the content is that revolutionary. Those who work in venues will likewise gain insight into the direction in which meeting planning must head. A must read.

Every part of this book is important. The authors share knowledge, which is rare and hard to acquire otherwise than through own expierences with events design.

Format: Paperback
After having worked for many years successfully designing meetings (something which few people can claim), Mike and Eric have been kind enough to share with the rest of us all their knowledge and experience. This book will not only open your mind as to what really matters in a meeting (its content) but it will also give you practical tools and tons of actionable ideas to start putting it into practice. I'm fortunate enough to be working right now on my first meeting design assignment for a client and can't put this book down!
But to me, the highlight of the book is how Eric and Mike conceive meetings: not as a means for people to meet, but as a tool to solve a business challenge. As I kept reading the book, I realized how unconventional and remarkable is their approach: to me, they are almost like psychologists or doctors, who with their work diagnose a company's problem or illness and then design a meeting to cure it! So I encourage all meeting planners to read this book and change the way they conceive meetings. I believe it is a much more meaningful and interesting job!!
