——————–

What we know, we know because we have learned.

And, our learning begins with the thoughts we think, and the words we read and hear.  And, of course, the observations we make.

And, one good way to keep learning – some would argue the best way to keep learning – is to learn what is in the best books.

For nearly 24 years, I have carefully selected books for the First Friday Book Synopsis.  And, I prepare and present synopses of these books.

Each synopsis handout I prepare is a 10-12 page comprehensive look at the key concepts in the book.  I prepare it; I present it.  And then participants listen, hopefully re-read the handout, and then ask for themselves;  “how do I implement what I have learned in my personal life, and my work life?”

FFBS, 10,1,2021For the October 1, 2021 First Friday Book Synopsis, I have chosen two more good books.  One is by an expert on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Kai-Fu Lee.  I presented his earler book AI Superpowers, back in March, 2019.  He has teamed up with an award-winning science fiction writer, Chen Quifan, to present some possible futures.  AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future.  I love the title.

The other book is by a genuine expert of people at work.  Johnny C. Taylor: Reset: A Leader’s Guide to Work in an Age of UpheavalMr. Taylor is the CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHERM), and this is a much anticipated book. It especially deals with how work has changed and is changing, with attention to work in this pandemic era.

Please mark your calendar.  Our sessions are currently on Zoom, each month, the first Friday of the month, at 7:30 am (CSTY).

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