Kelly Burton’s Summer Book Review Series continued…

Kelly Burton and UrbanGeekz have teamed up to deliver KB’s Business Book Review Series. Why? Because there is nothing geekier than dishing on biz books!

The weekly video series promises to give viewers the low down on the must-read business books. Kelly will help you navigate this summer’s top reads so you’ll be able to step up your game in business and in life.

Just a few of the treats we’ll be covering include Originals, Elon Musk, Predictably Irrational, The Art of Startup Fundraising and much more. In today’s installment, Kelly gives her take on Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World.

Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World

“It’s very rare that I listen to a book on Audible and then turn around and purchase the exact same book in hard copy because I enjoyed it so much,” says Kelly. “The only two times I can remember that happening was when I read What I Know for Sure by Oprah Winfrey and Originals by Adam Grant.”

“Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World is one of those books that completely reorders how you think about the world, especially if you’re a “go-getter” or change maker. It brings really smart research and anecdotes to bare to undo a few powerful myths and explore more subtle social themes. In this book review I share some of my most interesting take-aways and why I think it’s one of the best all-around books of the year.”

Kelly Burton Ph.D. is an accomplished entrepreneur with over a decade’s experience launching and scaling start-up companies. She is the founder of Bodyology, a tech-based clothing line and Nexus Research Group, a social research firm. Burton is also a columnist for UrbanGeekz.
