Reverse Innovation; Abundance – Our 2 Books for the July 6 First Friday Book Synopsis

We had a wonderful gathering this morning for the June 1 First Friday Book Synopsis.  Karl Krayer presented his synopsis of All In: How the Best Managers Create a Culture of Belief and Drive Big Results by Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton.  I presented the best-selling and much-talked-about The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg.  These are both genuinely useful books.

(Our synopses, with handouts + audio of our live presentations from this morning, will be available soon on our companion web site, 15minutebusinessbooks.com).

On July 6, Karl will present his synopsis Reverse Innovation: Create Far From Home, Win Everywhere by Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimble (foreword by Indra K. Nooyi).

I will present my synopsis of Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler.  Peter Diamandis is the founder of the X Prize, and you can watch his TED talk, Abundance is Our Future, here.  So this book will give us a big hefty dose of optimism, which I suspect we could all use right about now.

Click on the flier below to read all the details. We begin at 7:00, and conclude right around 8:05.  And you eat a great buffet with made-to-order omelet bar breakfast, experience great visiting and table conversations, and receive a quick, substantive jolt of content.  Come join us.
