You want to be up-to date on the latest and best business books. You want to be considered in the know; literate; “with it…”
And, most of all, you want to know what the key lessons and takeaways are from these good books so that you can put the lessons into practice in your own endeavors.
We can help.
At our First Friday Book Synopsis, each person receives the full comprehensive synopsis handout for each of the two books selected. They then follow along, with pen in had, and Randy presents the most important elements included in his handouts.
The First Friday Book Synopsis has been providing such key content from the best books for well over 21 years.
Here are three ways that you can learn from our synopses:
#1 – Attend the First Friday Book Synopsis – the first Friday of every month, 7:00 am, at the Park City Club in Dallas.
Randy Mayeux will present two fast-paced, content-rich synopses of best selling business books, each month.
At the October 4 event, Randy will present the just-published Malcolm Gladwell book Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know. (Mr. Gladwell was on Fareed Zakaria’s GPS program just this past Sunday, talking about his new book).
And, Randy will also present
The highly-regarded The Optimist’s Telescope: Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age by Bina Venkataraman.
Now…what if you missed some of our sessions? How can you “make up” your lost learning opportunity? We have two ways for you to “catch up…”
#2 – Join our new Business Book Synopsis of the Month Club.
(We are off to a great start! Thanks to those who have already signed up).
For just $5.00 per month (paid monthly through PayPal; or, $50.00 for 12 months), you can join our new club. Randy Mayeux will pick one “especially significant” book from his prior presentations, and send you that synopsis: the audio recording + the comprehensive synopsis handout. He will also add a second synopsis handout that complements the main selection for the month.
To sign up, please send Randy a direct e-mail, and simply put in the subject line: “Sign me up for the club.”
(As a thank you for signing up, each new member will receive his synopsis of the book Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl – the most important book Randy has ever presented, in his opinion).
#3 – Purchase our synopses from our 15minutebusinessbooks.com site.
We have many years worth of synopses on our site. Each synopsis comes with the audio recording of our presentations, plus the synopsis handout.
You can purchase a yearly subscription for $149.99, or purchase individual synopsis.
Just go to our web site, and click on the “buy synopses” tab at the top of the page. Click here for a direct link to our newest additions.
I hope you will take advantage of these three ways to keep learning…attend our event, and then “catch up” with synopses you had to miss.
