PostHeaderIcon Learn the essence of a business book in just 15 minutes!

Dr. Karl Krayer and Randy Mayeux, the "Business Knowledge Brokers", have each been reading at least one business book every month for more than a decade. They have summarized and presented the books at their monthly First Friday Book Synopsis events since 1998. You, too, can benefit because many of the presentations were recorded and preserved for your enjoyment and education. Those recorded presentations (and handouts) are available here.

What's in a Recorded 15 Minute Business Book Synopsis?

Each synopsis is filled with enough examples and details from the book that, as we like to say, "you can fool someone into believing that you've read it." To lock each book's essence into the minds of listeners, we quote liberally and re-tell a few of the best stories and examples in very short form. One thing we do not do is talk about our opinions of the ideas.

As an added bonus, we've included links to our Amazon.com bookstore so you can also buy the books. The bookstore includes books that we've presented at our First Friday Book Synopsis - and others that we recommend.

At 15MinuteBusinessBooks.com, we will help you keep up with today's essential business books, AND make them your secret weapons for success.
