The Confidence Code and The Promise of a Pencil – Our selections for the June 6, 2014 First Friday Book Synopsis


This morning, we had a great session at the May 2 First Friday Book Synopsis. Karl Krayer presented his synopsis of Talk Like TED by Carmine Gallo. Good book, especially useful for all speakers. And I presented my synopsis of the new Michael Lewis book, Flash Boys. What a provocative book about the “rigged, unfair” world surrounding the stock market(s). I’ll be posting my takeaways from this book in the next couple of days.

Next month, for the June 6 First Friday Book Synopsis, I have selected the new book by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. Their earlier book together, Womenomics , is a terrific book regarding the “women in business” arena. This new book will add additional understanding and value for all business leaders. The new book is: The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance—What Women Should Know.

(You can purchase my synopsis of their earlier book, Womenomics, with my multi-page handout + the audio of my presentation, at our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com).Womenomics Book Cover

And Karl Krayer will present his synopsis of The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change by Adam Braun.
