Cooper also illustrates really well, with a cartoon on almost every page. My favorite is the What To Do With Your Face section, where she shows the impact and importance of numerous facial expressions employed at meetings (See below). Her economy of line alone is worth the price of admission. Hirschfeld would not disapprove.
Cooper belabors the obvious to great effect (“Like most women, I’m not a man”), and her sarcasm could get anyone fired. It all makes for a delightful, effortless read that should replace the dreary One Minute Manager on every desk.
Even though the implication is you should avoid the behaviors she enumerates, you can make use of some of these techniques yourself if you can't think of anything substantive to contribute to a meeting.
I have to say this is one of my favorite books--and I read a lot of books so that's saying a lot.
It is short. We felt like it could have been a bit cheaper based on the fact that we were able to read it in 20 minutes each. Overall we liked it.
Thanks, Sarah, for making me laugh... and helping to make us look smarter!
