Recently, a sharp entrepreneur told me that she consistently hears that the First Friday Book Synopsis is one of the top 5 networking events in the Dallas area. I believe this is true, and you can sense it whenever you walk into the room at one of our monthly sessions. The quality of the people, the content of the book synopsis presentations, the great food, the respect for the clock… What more could you ask for?
We begin at 7:00 am, and you can always walk out between 8:05-8:07. And you leave with two handouts, genuinely comprehensive takeaways with key quotes and the most useful transferable principles from the two books chosen for the morning.
And we’ve been providing these sessions every month for over 14 years.
For May 4, we have selected two books that you will find very useful. I am presenting my synopsis of Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer. It is a terrific book! I read a lot of business books that have very good information, but some books are also written by exceptional writers. This is one of those books. (So is my June selection, The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg). Jonah Lehrer, the author of Imagine, tells a story with such thorough detail. And he tells stories in such a way that we see the insights just leap out in moments of “discovery.” He is a really good writer. (Click here to read the review of Imagine by our blogging colleague, Bob Morris).
Karl Krayer will present his synopsis of Take the Stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success. It is a book dealing with self-discipline. So, if you have mastered self-discipline, you can skip this presentation. (I suspect that you still have some work to do in that category – I sure do).
We meet at the wonderful Park City Club in Dallas, near the corner of Northwest Highway and the Dallas North Tollway, at 7:00 am – the first Friday of every month. Come join us for the May 4 First Friday Book Synopsis. You will be glad you did.
