Every Nation for Itself & The 4 Disciplines of Execution – Books for our September First Friday Book Synopsis

We had a terrific session this morning at the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas.  Karl Krayer presented his synopsis of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World  by Michael Hyatt, and I decided to make some upgrades to the way I blog and tweet.  It looks like I’ve got some research, and some work, to do.

I presented my synopsis of the business classic The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox.  It lived up to its reputation as a valuable, useful book.  It is terrific.

Both of our synopses, with our comprehensive handouts plus the audio recordings of our presentations, will be available for purchase soon on our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com.

For our September 7 First Friday Book Synopsis, we have chosen two more useful and valuable books.  Karl will present the synopsis of The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey , Jim Huling.  And I will present the synopsis of the highly recommended Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World by Ian Bremmer.  You can read an interview with the author, conducted by Fareed Zakaria, who praises the book, on the Amazon web site here.

In addition, Karl Krayer will present a bonus program on the biography of Walter Cronkite:  Cronkite, by Douglas Brinkley.  This will immediately follow our regular event.
