Randy Mayeux provides a thorough synopsis of the content of a useful, best-selling business book. He provides a comprehensive, multi-page synopsis handout, that concludes with his own lessons and takeaways from each book he presents.





For the May 7, 2021 First Friday Book Synopsis, I have selected two good books by influential women authors. I will present my synopses of:FFBS slide for SND April, 2021 meeting

 Just Work: Get Sh*t Done, Fast & Fair by Kim Scott. St. Martin’s Press. 2021.
The Scout Mindset: Why Some People See Things Clearly and Others Don’t by Julia Galef. Portfolio. 2021.

Kim Scott’s first book, Radical Candor, is a much-discussed, and highly practicable book for leaders and managers.  I am quite high on the value of this book, recommend it frequently; and I have presented my synopsis of this book to many leadership teams.  So I am fully expecting this book to be just as valuable.

And The Scout Mindset is a book with plenty of pre-publication buzz.

I can’t wait to delve into both books.

We are continuing to meet on Zoom.  The Zoom info is below.

I will e-mail the link to download the two handouts the day before the event.

And, though there is no charge to attend, if you would like to participate financially, (maybe a $12.00 participation), you can do so thorough PayPal by clicking here.  Or, you can send money through Zelle at .

We have around 100 people join us on Zoom each month.  Please plan to be with us on May 7. And, please invite many to join in with us.

{Special Note:  Karl Krayer will present a “bonus synopsis” at 9:30, following our regular program and discussion}.

Let’s keep learning – there’s always the next new thing to learn.
