The Surprising Power of a “Useless” Liberal Arts Education, and Make Your Bed – Coming for the October 6 First Friday Book Synopsis

We had a wonderful gathering this morning at the September First Friday Book Synopsis. (Though a few had to miss because of the gasoline shortage related to the ripple effects of Hurricane Harvey).

I always choose books that I love, and I especially loved reading Ryan Holiday’s Perennial Seller, which I presented this morning. It just made me want to do better work! And it had great, actionable ideas to market whatever great work I do.

For next month, the October 6 First Friday Book Synopsis, we have selected two other really good books. My colleague Karl Krayer will present his synopsis of Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World by William H. McRaven. His synopsis of this best seller will be worth hearing.

And I will present my synopsis of the new book by George Anders: You Can Do Anything: The Surprising Power of a “Useless” Liberal Arts Education. I regularly recommend an earlier book of his, The Rare Find: Spotting Exceptional Talent Before Everyone Else, which I presented at the February, 2012 First Friday Book Synopsis. Great book!

If you are in Dallas on October 6, plan to join us. Here’s the flier with all the details. (You will be able to register soon from the home page of this web site).
