15minadYou know you’re going to get around to them soon – those books you intend to read. But, there they stand, in your “to-read-soon” list, still unread…

But, there are transferable principles to learn from them now. If you knew what they said, you might think differently, work differently… better.

So, here are some of the latest synopses we’ve just uploaded to our companion web site,

Each synopsis was recorded (audio recordings) live at our monthly event, the First Friday Book Synopsis, in Dallas. (We’ve been presenting book synopsis at our monthly event every month since April, 1998 — 16+ years now.  The “we” is me, Randy Mayeux, and my colleague, Karl Krayer).  You will receive:

The audio recording of our synopsis – about 15-17 minutes in length.
A multi-page, comprehensive handout, with the key content of the book (for the last few years, I’ve been including “my takeaways”).

We’ve just added:
