You can almost call us prescient. On this month’s New York Times Business Books Best Sellers list, we have already selected the #1 book, Triggers by Marshall Goldsmith, and the # 7 book, Team of Teams by General Stanley McChrystal for our August 7 First Friday Book Synopsis.
Karl Krayer has selected the Goldsmith volume, and I will present General Stanley McChystal’s book.
I’ve presented synopses of #2, Outliers; #6, The Power of Habit; #8, Lean In; and #9, Freakonomics. And, I will present my synopsis of Elon Musk, #3 on this list, at this Friday’s (July 120) First Friday Book Synopsis.
And Karl Krayer has presented his synopsis of #5, Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman.
(Outliers, and Lean In, and The Power of Habit, and Thinking, Fast and Slow, and Freakonomics, just keep showing up on this list. They are genuinely valuable books. You are not quite “business-book literate” if you don’t know these books).
So, that makes 8 of this month’s top 10 list that we have presented at our monthly event.
Here is the New York Times Business Books Best Sellers list for July, 2015. Click on over to the New York Times site for short descriptions of each of these books.
