Zoom link coming soon
Please invite one and all to participate in this session.
During Pandemic Season, we have continued to average well over 100 people gathering each month on Zoom for the First Friday Book Synopsis..
On November 6, I will present my synopses of two very good books. One of them, Invisible Women, won the Business Book of the Year award in 2019, from McKinsey and The Financial Times. Note: this will be the third book I have presented that won this prestigious award. I earlier presented Rise of the Robots by Martin Ford, the winner in 21015. And, to another audience (not at the First Friday Book Synopsis), I presented Capital by Thomas Pinketty, the 2014 winner.
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.
Of course, it would be better if you read the books on your own. But, my synopses are comprehensive, surprisingly thorough, they will give you plenty of the key content. You will learn, and be able to ponder the ideas in a useful way. And, if you have read the book, my synopsis will help you remember more of what you read.
Here are the two books I have selected to present for the November 6 session:
- Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez. Harry N. Abrams; First Printing Edition (March 12, 2019)
- Uncharted: How to Navigate the Futureby Margaret Heffernan. Avid Reader Press; Simon & Schuster (September 8, 2020)
Come join us.
(Note: we had a little bit of a Zoom hacker event in October. I will post the Zoom info on this blog soon. But I am working on shoring up the security).
