Here’s the January, 2014 list of Business Books Best Sellers (New York Times) – Lean In is Still #1
I presented my synopsis of Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg last April (2013) at the First Friday Book Synopsis, and many times since then. It is, again, and still, #1 on the New York Times Business Best Sellers List. Just amazing!
Here is the January, 2014 list of Business Books Best Sellers from the New York Times. Notice again the presence of “earlier” Malcolm Gladwell books. And, for some reason, they do not include his new book, David and Goliath, as a “business” book. (It is currently #2 on the Hardcover Nonfiction Best Sellers list).
Note: On this list of ten best sellers, we have presented synopses of 7 at the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas. I have presented synopses of: Lean In, Outliers, The Power of Habit, The Tipping Point, Steve Jobs, and The Everything Store. My colleague, Karl Krayer, has presented Thinking, Fast and Slow. You can purchase our synopses, with our comprehensive multi-page handouts and the audio of our presentations, at our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com. This is a good way to get a fast take on the key content of these best-selling books.

The Kellermann Foundation is a U.S. Christian non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing resources for health, education, spiritual outreach, and economic empowerment for the benefit of the Batwa pygmies and adjacent communities in southwest Uganda. In 1992, the Batwa were evicted from the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest when it was made a World Heritage Site to protect the endangered mountain gorilla. As hunter/gatherers, the Batwa had no title to land and were given no compensation. As one of the most impoverished people groups on earth, their existence became a major struggle for survival.
American physician Dr. Scott Kellermann and his wife, Carol, began serving as medical missionaries to the Batwa in 2001. The Kellermann Foundation was created to support and expand their work, empowering the Batwa to break the cycle of poverty through the Batwa Development Program, providing healthcare to all residents of the region through Bwindi Community Hospital, and educating nurses at Uganda Nursing School Bwindi. These partner programs address the root causes of extreme poverty and poor health, making a daily difference in thousands of lives in this remote corner of Uganda.
Reading the handout, listening to the recording – it was “…like Power-Reading a Business Book”
