News & Opinion: T.O.C. of The Seven-Day Weekend

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 7:40 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

We are going to try out different content features over the next couple of months. Some authors are going to stop by and chat. We are going to bring in outside reviewers to talk about books they like and dislike.
This is the trial installment of the T.O.C. We are going to post the table of contents from a randomly chosen business book. We know this is often a method used to quickly evaluate a potential purchase.
The Seven-Day Weekend by Ricardo Semler is our first book. It is being released in May by Portfolio.

Semler and the book have been featured in Inc. Magazine. You can read the first chapter of the book online and there was an interview with Semler appeared in the April issue.
