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.
I hope you can join us!

We began our monthly gatherings back in April, 1998. Two books, every month. A full synopsis.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ THE BOOKS IN ADVANCE! – No pre-reading of the books required!

{For years, we met at the wonderful Park City Club in Dallas. We have switched to Zoom during the pandemic season}.

We have continued to average over 100 people gathering each month on Zoom for the First Friday Book Synopsis.

On November 5, I will present my synopses of two very good books.11,5,2021 FFBS

The first book is:
The Long Game: How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World by Dorie Clark.
This Harvard Business Review publication is designed to help you think about the bigger picture – the longer view – even as we are faced with the ongoing short-term challenges of the pandemic.

The second book is:
The Power of Pressure: Why Pressure Isn’t the Problem, It’s the Solution by Dane Jensen.
This is a book that helps us deal with the ever-present pressure we feel in the modern work and life environment; including the pressure that has increased because of the pandemic. This is a “how to survive, cope, and flourish” book.

If you are like many, you do not have time to read all of the books you would like to read. The First Friday Book Synopsis is designed for you.

My synopses are comprehensive, thorough, and they will give you plenty of the key content. You will learn, and be able to ponder the ideas in a useful way. And, even if you have read the book, my synopsis will help you remember more of what you read.

The session ends at about 8:35 am, but, the post-session Zoom conversations have proven to be especially useful. (Note: this page says these are two-hour meetings. They are actually just over one hour, plus the optional post-session conversation).

I hope you can join us.

Mark the date, November 5, in your calendar, and save the Zoom info.
