This morning, a large crowd gathered for the August First Friday Book Synopsis. Karl Krayer delivered the synopsis of Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements by Tom Rath and Jim Harter, and I delivered the synopsis of the immensely practical Mastering the Rockefeller Habits: What You Must Do to Increase the Value of Your Growing Firm by Verne Harnish.
For September, traditionally the official launch of the new school year, we have chosen two important books. Karl Krayer will present the big best-seller, Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose by Tony Hsieh. Hsieh is the CEO of the successful and popular Zappos.com.
I will present the synopsis of The Great Reset: How New Ways of Living and Working Drive Post-Crash Prosperity by Richard Florida. Florida is the pace-setting author whose earlier book, The Rise of the Creative Class, generated thought and conversation for so many. The very title of his new book is profound: we are in a time that demands, and is experiencing, a great reset.
You can read the review of The Great Reset by Bob Morris, from our blog, here. Here is his last line: In my opinion, The Great Reset to be the most valuable book that Richard Florida has written…thus far.
One person, a first-time participant this morning, described the event as a fast dose of content, “fire-hosed from the speakers into the minds of the participants.” I think this is a pretty apt description. Our event is definitely fast-paced, content-rich, and content-focused.
If you live in the DFW area, plan to join us on Friday, September 3, for this gathering filled with content, great networking, and good food.
