Come join us for our September Session

We really do live in a content-rich, information-overloaded era.  And we all have books we wish we could get to, read, understand...  So many books, so little time.


But, since April, 1998, we have lightened your load just a litlte by reading some of the most important books for you, and giving you the key content and the transferable principles.    


For September, Karl Krayer will present his synopsis of the practical book The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, & Jim Huling (Free Press. 2012).


I will present my synopsis of the "honest and disturbing" book 

Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World by Ian Bremmer  (Portfolio Hardcover. 2012).  This book will help us realize some of the new realities, some of the new challenges in this very new "new normal" era.


Cronkite * AND - Special Bonus Session, beginning at 8:30 am

In addition, if you can stay for an "after" session, Karl Krayer will present a review of the book by Douglas Brinkley, Cronkite.  You will learn about the life and career, and the lasting impact, of the remarkable journalist Walter Cronkite.  Note:  the money collected for this bonus program will be donated to the TakeTime to Read program, sponsored by the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.  (You can either pay for this bonus session at the door, or you can pre-pay through our regular on-line registration process.  The bonus program is an additional $15.00, thus the cost of both sessions together, if pre-paid on-line, is $42.00). 


Come join us on September 7.  It will be a good way to launch your autumn months, and a great way to spend your early morning hours.
