Tomorrow, at the October 7 First Friday Book Synopsis: I loved the book I am presenting: The Inevitable by Kevin Kelly. Subtitled The Twelve Technological Forces That Will Shape our Future, Mr. Kelly, one of the founders of Wired Magazine, knows what he is talking about! This is a good, important book, and I’m glad I’ve read it…
At the moment, here are the books I will present in the coming three months:
Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans
And, maybe for January – Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers by Timothy Ferriss. (I write “maybe” — this book is over 700 pages long! I’m just saying…).
And my colleague Karl Krayer will present these books:
And maybe, for December, (he is still deciding)…
Feminist Fight Club: An Office Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace by Jessica Bennett
Just for the record, Karl and I had our own rare “fight” over one title. We both wanted to present Pre-Suasion, but he claimed it first…
We have hosted the First Friday Book Synopsis every month for over 18 years (since April, 1998). We have a great monthly gathering, with great conversations, and a wonderful breakfast, and two fast paced book synopses. You really do leave knowing the key content to each book. As one friend put it, “I leave knowing the book”).
We also do longer presentations of these synopses within companies and organizations. Click here to send me a direct e-mail, and let’s schedule a synopsis this for your leadership team, or a larger gathering of folks within your organization.
And we continue to look forward… what books will we present in 2017? I’m looking forward to another great year of good, useful books.
