Jack Covert Selects: BBBT rolls into Milwaukee

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 3:09 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Today, 800-CEO-READ is hosting the Busines Blog Book Tour. If you are not familiar with the tour, five stops are lined up with from sites across the business blogsphere. The tour spends a day at each blog, giving the blogger and author some time to hang-out. You might see Q&As, book reviews, or references to other related content. The author get some free PR, and the blogger get unique content and the chance to hang out with cool people. The book on this month's tour is called Naked in the Boardroom by Robin Wolaner. Jack was the first to point out the book to me. He was struck by the honesty of the book. On page 4, she talks about a near rape and how she was partially responsible for letting herself get into that situation. Wow. Definitely not your typical business book. Our main event for today is an audio interview I did with Robin. We talk about career planning, the launch of Parenting Magazine, and current state of the magazine industry. I posted the Jack Covert Selects review of Naked in the Boardroom. I also posted one more Naked Truth, where Robin talks about business books. You can check out other excerpts from the book that we ran last week here.
