News & Opinion: Are you in California?

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:06 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Next week is the big week for us at 800-CEO-READ. You've seen a fair amount of our chatter over the excitement of our book, The 100 Best Business Books of All Time. This coming week is the official launch week!
Which means, a lot is going on to celebrate the launch, starting in California. If you're in San Francisco or find yourself in San Francisco this week, come out and join us for two events.
The first is happening on Tuesday evening, February 3rd, at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. There Todd will be presenting on the five recurring problems in business and how we can use business books to keep us from running into those problems again and again. Tickets and more information are available here.
For the second event, we're bringing in four authors to help: Chip Heath of Made to Stick, Bob Sutton and Jeffrey Pfeffer of The Knowing-Doing Gap and Randy Komisar of The Monk and the Riddle. It's happening on Wednesday evening, February 4th at 7pm, at the Stanford d. school. 100% free and open to the public. Detailed times and directions available here.
We'd love to see you there. And if you're coming, do say hello. Both Todd and I will be there and it'd be great to meet you in person. Drop us a note and come find us at the event. kate (at) 800ceoread (dot) com or todd (at) 800ceoread (dot) com.
See you soon, California!
