Support our Sponsor: The Fisher House


Fisher HouseFor the second year in a row, we will donate our profits for one month to the Fisher House.  We have chosen to do this for our July First Friday Book Synopsis.  (July - Independence Day - an appropriate month for this).  

What does the Fisher House do.  This simple sentence from their web site states it clearly: 
Fisher House Foundation

Providing a "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.

Come join us for our July gathering 
It is never ending.  There are always new books to read, new books to learn about, new books to challenge us.  

And, in the midst of all this challenge, we occasionally need just a dose of hopeful news.  

For the July First Friday Book Synopsis, one book will challenge us, and another, even as it challenges us, will give us hope for a "better tomorrow."  Karl will present the book Reverse Innovation: Create Far From Home, Win Everywhere by Fijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimbley  (Indra K. Nooyi, Foreword).  Harvard Business Review Press (2012). 


I will present the synopsis of Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think by Peter H. Diamindis and Steven Kotler.  Free Press (2012).  Mr. Diamindis is the Founder and Chairman of the X PRIZE Foundation.  (You can watch his TED Talk, Abundance Is Our Future, here).   


Come join us for our July First Friday Book Synopsis.   I think you will find it a valuable way to spend your early morning hours.

{P.S. - a sad note.  Jack Howe, a fine man with a quiet spirit, attended our First Friday Book Synopsis gatherings many times.  He passed away just a few days ago.  We will miss him, and our prayers and thoughts are with his family.}
