Book Overview

Funny because it's true. Comedian, star of the Netflix special Everything's Fine, and Trump lip-syncing sensation Sarah Cooper presents the must-have book you never knew you needed, 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings. In it, you will learn how to appear smart in less than half the time it takes to actually learn anything.

You know those subtle tricks your coworkers are all guilty of? The constant nodding, pretend concentration, useless rhetorical questions? These tricks make them seem like they know what they're doing when in fact they have no clue. This behavior is so ingrained, so subtle, and so often mistaken for true intelligence that identifying it, calling it out, or compiling it into an exhaustive digest has never been attempted. Until now.

Complete with illustrated tips, examples, and scenarios, 100 Tricks gives you actionable ways to use words like actionable, in order to sound smart. Every type of meeting is covered, from general meetings where you stopped paying attention almost immediately, to one-on-one meetings you zoned out on, to impromptu meetings you were painfully subjected to at the last minute. It's all here.

Open this book to any page and find an easy-to-digest trick with an even easier-to-digest illustration, guiding you on:

   Absolutely Hilarious!
Anyone who has ever worked in a corporate job will love this book immediately. Sarah's humor is biting and reads like it comes straight out of HBO's Silicon Valley. One of my favorite little snippets is the idea of using the royal we, like we really need to look at this issue when you are not really involved. You can take credit for all the good stuff while spreading the blame, perfect! I know that I'll appear smarter in all my upcoming meetings, for a fact.

   Great fun!
I found this book to be amazingly funny and so very true! '' I shared many of the relevant pictures with my colleagues and also got a good laugh. I found myself smiling or internally nodding about another concept in the book, while in meetings that otherwise might have led me to tears. In the end, the book made me realize that we're all pretty much the same and this author has captured important snaps shots of why we do what we do at work.

   Shelf Worthy
100 Ways is one of the best reference books ever written on the subject of how to survive the dreaded Ice Meeting. Sarah Cooper's nifty suggestions and subtle wit makes one ask why I think so? I'll order more for my colleagues to read as gifts so that we can get through that unavoidable office meeting. Sarah, thank you!

   Funny but true
This book is located somewhere between humor and factual. If you spend any time in the corporate world, you will immediately nod your head to every page. Hey, Bob does, that is what is Bob. You'll go from laughing out of your chair, to amazement, to inspiration and quite possibly a little crying from self-revelation. I read this book for some laughs, but it may be a great way to get ahead or at least be noticed without much added effort, just hope that your co-workers haven 't read the book too.

   If you work
If you work with people or are just thinking about doing this, ya gotta read! Sadly, I'm 73 and there is not enough money on the planet to get me back into an office. BUT, application of skills to unusual situations is my skill, as is telling people what to do or even don '' as soon as she can hold in a sitting position. That is what I 'll do!

   On how to Appear to be smart at meetings rather than how to Actually Be smart at meetings
I was hoping for a book on how to be more productive and productive in meetings. This is not the case. This is a list of ways to make yourself important at meetings and have people notice that you are there. If that is what you want, then this could be a good book. It might also be useful if you want to recognize people who are only good in meetings. But if you want to have more useful meetings done more often, this isn 't it.

   Funny and Informative!
What a delightful book! I ordered this for my grown daughter initially after she presented me with stories of her business meetings and the characters involved. Some of my friends caused me to laugh out loud. Some immediately brought to mind some of my coworkers and some I hold onto to use in my own meetings. Sarah Cooper writes with mild honesty and fresh wit. Ms. Cooper tells you that someone paid me. Oh, I forgot to gift this to my daughter, so it looks like I have to order another copy.

   Funny, worth a read, probably not great value though
I saw an article on BuzzFeed about this book and read through the extracts it had and was honestly in stitches laughing. Then i decided to buy the e-book and look smart the rest of the 100 ways. Unfortunately, like most previews '', the good stuff had already been shown and the material left in the book was a filler. The humor is very relatable and anyone who works in the office or in a professional space will find some value in it, but honestly it was just so-so, as i got towards the end. Maybe the ludicrous nature of the workplace dawned on me and became satire a reminder of reality, maybe it just lost steam. This is something that could have been found as a free web article and probably wasn't worth the $12 a paid for it as an e-book, i honestly won 't read again. I would say that it needed more content per object to be a sale item, its currently a bit light on the material.
