We had a wonderful session for the April First Friday Book Synopsis, with presentations of Practically Radical and Change the Culture, Change the Game. Those synopses, with audio + handout, will soon be available on our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com.
For May, we have chosen two terrific business best-sellers.
I will present my synopsis of Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions by Guy Kawasaki. This will be the third book I’ve presented by Guy Kawasaki, so you can tell I am a big fan. The earlier two books were The Art of the Start (which is an ideal read for anyone starting – starting a new job, a new major project… starting anything important). And later, I presented Reality Check. Enchantment is the first book that I have read “early” in quite a while. I’ve blogged about it a time or two already. You can read the review by Bob Morris of this fine book on our blog here. He ends his review this way:
If asked to recommend one book that should be read by anyone now preparing for a business career or who has only recently embarked on one, I would suggest two: Reality Check and Enchantment.
Karl will present the best-seller Tell to Win: Connect, Persuade, and Triumph with the Hidden Power of Story by Peter Guber. This book is getting a lot of buzz, and reminds us that story is at the heart of all good communication.
If you are near the DFW area on May 6, I hope you can join us for the May First Friday Book Synopsis – 7:00 am, at the wonderful and beautiful Park City Club.
