The Chip & The Future; and, When McKinsey Comes to Town – two good and needed books for the January 6, 2023 First Friday Book Synopsis

What actually happens when McKinsey shows up?  It may not all be good…

And, what will really determine the future of a country?  One case that can be made is that the country with the best computer chips wins.

These are the subjects we will tackle with our two books selected for the January 6 First Friday Book Synopsis.

January 6, 2023– Park City Club (and Zoom)

  1. When McKinsey Comes to Town: The Hidden Influence of the World’s Most Powerful Consulting Firm by Walt Bogdanich and Michael Forsythe 

  1. Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology by  Chris MillerChip War

At the First Friday Book Synopsis, we make each month’s session a genuine learning event.  You learn from the best business books, and then it is up to you to put into practice the things you learn.

For the January 6, 2023, I will present my synopses of these two much-discussed books.  Click here to register for the in-person session.  (Zoom info is below).

For over 24 years, we have presented synopses of business books at the First Friday Book Synopsis.  So many of these books that I have read and presented have shaped my thinking and helped me understand business success…and failure.

Mark your calendar for January 6.  Attend in person, or on Zoom.  Here are all the details.


Two good books for the January 6 First Friday Book Synopsis:

  1. When McKinsey Comes to Town: The Hidden Influence of the World’s Most Powerful Consulting Firm by  Walt Bogdanich and Michael Forsythe
  1. Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology by  Chris Miller

In our 25th YEAR of the First Friday Book Synopsis

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

“I love good books; and I read books
And share their core concepts
To help people become more literate
And know what to work on
To do a better job
To build a better company
And, ultimately, to build a better life.”
Randy Mayeux

For 24+ years, Randy has been presenting synopses of best-selling, useful, helpful business books.  Every month!  

What we know, we know because we have learned.
And, much of our learning begins with the thoughts we think, and the words we read and hear.

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 to learn from two terrific and important books.

January 6, 2023 – Park City Club; and on Zoom 

What to expect:
Two fast paced synopsis presentations.

For In-person participants, you will be given copies of the two synopsis handouts.  For those attending remotely, you will receive a synopsis handout to download for each of the two books, delivered the day before the event, via e-mail (and, available on this blog).

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

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.

Our synopses are comprehensive, thorough, and they will give you plenty of the key content from each book. 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.

I hope you can join us.
