Randy Mayeux provides a thorough synopsis of the content of a useful, best-selling business book. He provides a comprehensive, multi-page synopsis handout, that concludes with his own lessons and takeaways from each book he presents.
For the June 4, 2021 First Friday Book Synopsis, Randy Mayeux will present synopses of two new books, both reviewed very favorably.
The Premonition: A Pandemic Story by Michael Lewis – W. W. Norton & Company (May 4, 2021)
The Heart of Business: Leadership Principles for the Next Era of Capitalism by Hubert Joly, with Caroline Lambert. Harvard Business Review Press (May 4, 2021)
Michael Lewis was recently interviewed on 60 Minutes about his new book, The Premonition. It is a book with lessons learned and opportunities missed during the past year’s pandemic challenges. It will be worth a careful look.
And, The Heart of Business was written by the CEO who turned Best Buy around. I remember articles about the danger Best Buy was in. They have come though their dangers to profitable and successful days. This book reveals the business strategy that Hubert Joly followed to lead .
I can’t wait to delve into both books.
We are continuing to meet on Zoom. The Zoom info is below.
I will e-mail the link to download the two handouts the day before the event.
