Leadership Field Manual by Jocko Willink; The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber – Coming for the February 7, 2020 First Friday Book Synopsis

The First Friday Book Synopsis
February 7, 2020

Here are just a few ways we have tried to describe our event through the years:

#1 — A great Park City Club breakfast — and, it really is a great breakfast!
#2 — Conversations with terrific people – people of substance.
#3 – Full, substantive synopses of two compelling business books. (and, books related to business issues).

“I love good books; and I read books
And share their core concepts
Primarily with people near Dallas
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

Learn from the best books
Connect with the best people
While you enjoy the best breakfast buffet in Dallas

Like CliffsNotes on steroids
Like Power Reading a business book

Last Friday, we had another full room for our January First Friday Book Synopsis (yes, on the second Friday of January, because of the holiday).  I presented my synopses of Stillness is the Key by Ryan Holiday, and Trailblazer by Marc Benioff (CEO of Salesforce).

{My synopses will be uploaded soon for purchase from this web site.  All of my synopses come with my full, multi-page, comprehensive synopsis handouts, plus the audio recordings of my presentations, recorded at our events}.

For our February 7 First Friday Book Synopsis session, I have chosen a brand new book on leadership by a very popular leadership author, and a “modern business classic.” The new book is by former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, his first book written without his usual co-author Leif Babin.  The other selection was first published in 1986, well before we began our First Friday Book Synopsis events in 1998.  I know that both books will be worth your time.

My synopses are thorough.  Each handout is 9-11 pages long, with sections covering:

  • the point of the book
  • why the book is worth your time
  • the best of Randy’s highlighted passages from the book
  • the best stories from the book
  • many key lessons and principles from the book
  • and, I always conclude my synopses with my lessons and takeaways

If you are in the DFW area, I hope you will mark your calendar now for our February 7, 2020 First Friday Book Synopsis.  You will be able to register soon from the home page of this web site.  Here’s the flier with all the details..
