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.
“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.”
