For years you’ve asked me to set up a monthly time for all of us to talk about a given book. As an experiment we will set one up. The first book to discuss is Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cuddy.
Amy Cuddy gave world-famous TED talk on body language, posture, and mood. As I relied on Cuddy’s research in Gorilla Mindset and in developing my own posture exercises, it’s only fair to read and review her book.
My vision for the book club is straight forward. We choose a book each month that relates to mindset, health and fitness, marketing, charisma, or persuasion. (No politics!)
After reading the book, we’ll hold a conference call – similar to the Brainstorm session I had with Vox Day.
There’s a catch.
I won’t allow freeloaders to waste the group’s time.
Before you’re allowed on the book club call, you have to submit a one-page report of the book. This report doesn’t need to be detailed, but it must include three to five “big ideas” from the book.
How much does the book club cost?
Memberships is limited to those who have purchased a copy of Gorilla Mindset. Although Gorilla Mindset will not be discussed at book club, familiarity with mindset concepts will make your contributions to discussion more productive.
When will it meet?
To be determined, although the end of the month is most likely.
