Depending on where you live, this has been quite a brutal summer, hasn’t it? I don’t think I can remember a year where I’ve consciously avoided spending too much time outdoors as much as I have this summer. Of course, my extra time spent in the air conditioning means that I’ve been able to read even more business books. Our entire editorial team has been hard at work scouring the stacks of submissions. The result of this intense study is three new summaries now available on Summary.com!
As I mentioned on Wednesday of this week, Soundview subscribers can’t get enough of the insightful works of John C. Maxwell. We’re pleased to announce that you can now read the summary of his latest book Everyone Communicates, Few Connect. In this book, Maxwell provides readers with the skills to create lasting connections through communication. Whether speaking to an audience of one or a thousand, Maxwell shares the best practices to create memorable connections.
Have you ever wondered why some products take off while others languish? Author Kevin Maney provides an in-depth examination of this problem in the summary of his book Trade-Off: Why Some Things Catch On and Others Don’t. Maney argues that successful products are either high fidelity or high convenience. Read the summary to see why companies that try to merge the two into a single product end up losing potential buyers.
Finally, our third new summary takes readers on an exploration of the modern workplace. Jon Katzenbach and Zia Khan offer leaders a new way forward in their book Leading Outside the Lines: How to Mobilize the (in)Formal Organization, Energize Your Team and Get Better Results.
