What:  the July 7 First Friday Book Synopsis, 7:00 am (7:25 am for synopses start time)


Every month since April 1998, we have presented synopses of two good business books at the First Friday Book Synopsis, in Dallas.  Now a hybrid event (both in-person at the Park City Club, and on Zoom), it is a true learning event.


  • About our July 7 Session:

Lessons for business, lessons for life, from the world of sports.  Written by a fine sports journalist!

And, creativity is a lifelong quest, and possibility.  Written by a creative superstar.

The July First Friday Book Synopsis will provide valuable information, and useful and usable teachings to help with our business endeavors.

July 7, 2023– Park City Club (and Zoom) — 7:00 am Central Time — (program begins at 7:25 am)

The two books for the July 7 session are:

The Right Call: What Sports Teach Us About Work and Life by Sally Jenkins.


The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin.

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 July 7, 2023, session, I will present my synopses of both of these useful books.  Click here to register for the in-person session.  (Zoom info is below).


In our 26th 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

July 7, 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.
