We Keep Learning -- 
Because there is always the
Next New Thing to Learn


For over 15 years, we have shared a remarkable learning event with a wonderful ever-changing, ever-expanding circle of participants.  The First Friday Book Synopsis is ideal for thelearners among us.  It is the combination or elements -- book synopses, table conversations, post-event connections, great food.  It really is a terrific way to spend an early-morning Fridayeach month.

For our June 7 event, we have selected two terrific books written by uniquely qualified authors.  

Karl Krayer will present the synopsis of The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. (Bard Press.  2013).  Gary Keller is the co-founder and chairman of the board of Keller Williams Realty.  Here's an excerpt from the review by Bob Morris
from our blog:  Gary Keller rigorously examines a very important insight: The sharper the focus of our attention and effort, the better the result will be: answering the ONE question, solving the ONE problem, achieving the ONE objective...producing the ONE result... that is MOST IMPORTANT.  
I will present the synopsis of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success by Adam M. Grant Ph.D. (Viking Adult.  2013).  From the author's web site
Adam Grant is the youngest tenured professor at Wharton. He has been recognized as Wharton's single-highest-rated teacher, one of BusinessWeek's favorite professors, and one of the world's 40 best business professors under 40. 
If you are keen to learn, if you want to make important connections; or if you just love a great breakfast, come join us on June 7.  I'm confident it will be worth your time..
