Special note: the First Friday Book Synopsis for July will be held on the Second Friday of July (because of the holiday weekend).
We are well into out 18th year of the First Friday Book Synopsis. And here’s something I have come to understand: after preparing one new business book synopsis each month since April, 1998, I still have so very much to learn. There are always more books to choose from than we have time to present. Karl Krayer and I each present a new book synopsis each month – 24 books a year — and, there are still so many good book we don’t get around to.
And, just as we have more to learn, so do our participants. That is why they keep coming back, month after month…
We have a new phrase to describe what we do: we are “ghost readers for the business set.” That’s how Cheryl Hall of the Dallas Morning News described us in her May, 2015 article: Dallas consultants are ghost readers for the business set. It’s a great phrase. For those who don’t read a lot of books, we are your “ghost readers,” giving you plenty of good content to ponder. And for those who look for the next new book to read thoroughly and carefully, we help you make more informed choices.
For our July 10 session, we have chosen two important new books. Karl Krayer has selected Move: Putting America’s Infrastructure Back in the Lead by the always valuable Rosabeth Moss Kanter.
And I will present my synopsis of the new book on Elon Musk: Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance.
Here’s the flier with all the details. If you are in the DFW area on July 10, come join us. (You’ll be able to register soon from the home page of our/this web site). I believe that you will find our events provide useful infusions of good business-book content.
