Don’t just read about it—do it! From the creator of the viral sensation Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings (5+ million views and hundreds of thousands of shares) comes the must-have book you never knew you needed, 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings. In this illustrated guide, you will learn how to appear smart in less than half the time it takes to actually learn anything.  

It’s available now from Avery Hill Publishing, a division of Workman Publishing Company. 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.
