There is no cost for this bonus program.  
(Donation envelopes for CitySquare will be available).
We Keep Learning --
Because there is always the
Next New Thing to Learn





It's nearly December.  For many, in addition to other elements of the holidays, it is shopping season.  And Amazon, my store for books for many years, is now my store for much more.  What about you?  (And, by the way, Amazon is now rolling out Sunday delivery with the U.S. Postal Service).  The innovations in customer service just keep on coming from Jeff Bezos and his team at Amazon.


So, in the midst of this shopping season, we are presenting The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone. (Little, Brown and Company: 2013).


In addition, we will present the modern business "classic," Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change by William Bridges and Susan Bridges. Da Capo Lifelong Books; Third Edition, Revised and Updated for the New Work Environment edition (2009).


{And, this month, we will have a bonus program from 8:30-9:30 for CitySquare.  I will present a synopsis of The Wealth of the Poor by Larry James, the CEO of CitySquare, and then Larry will describe the work of CitySquare and lead us in a conversation about their work.  No cost -- but donation envelopes will be provided}.


Come join us.  Learn with us.  I think you will find it to be a valuable use of an early Friday morning.
