One thing to know about our book club
We are the iD Movement Book Club, based in Wood Dale. We like to take quotes from the books we are reading and text or email them to each other during the day as encouraging notes.
We meet every six to eight weeks, focusing on nonfiction and business selections. Our club reads as a management team, and we try to implement three ideas we learned through the course of reading each book.
"Delivering Happiness" by Tony Hsieh, founder of Zappos; "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" by Patrick Lencioni; "Negotiation Genius" by Deepak Malhotra and Max H. Bazerman; "Uncommon Service" by Frances Frei and Anne Morriss; "Whale Done" by Kenneth Blanchard, Thad Lacinak, Chuck Tompkins and Jim Ballard; "The Checklist Manifesto" by Atul Gawande.
We didn't like
"The Culting of Brands" by Douglas Atkin — found it too repetitive.
Author we would like to meet
Tony Hsieh, to ask him about his business model.
"Rework" by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson.
