The September, 2017 New York Times Business Books Best sellers list is out. And again this month, it is tough for new books to make it to the top.
For this month’s list, Grit by Angela Duckworth is at the top spot, and Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell is at #2. Both of these books have been out for quite a while.
My colleague, Karl Krayer, presented his synopsis of Grit at the July, 2016 First Friday Book Synopsis, and I presented my synopsis of Outliers at the January, 2009 session. (The First Friday Book Synopsis is our monthly gathering in Dallas – now in our 20th year).
From this month’s list, I have presented synopses of #2, Outliers; #6, The Power of Habit; and #9, Tools of Titans. My colleague Karl Krayer has presented synopses of #1, Grit; and #5, Thinking, Fast and Slow.
Our synopses, with our comprehensive, multi-page handouts, along with the audio recordings of our presentations, are available at the “Buy Synopses” tab at the top of this page. (We have many more business book synopses available, with two new ones added every month.
(The new book on this month’s list that especially interests me is Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Max Tegmark).
