Reading Group: Making Things Happen (Starts now)

lrg (1)One of my most popular books, Making Things Happen, was published 10 years ago. Originally titled The Art of Project Management, this very popular book on leading and managing projects started my career as an author. I’ve moved on to write about many other subjects but this book holds a special place on my bookshelf.

To celebrate I’m rereading the book and I’m inviting you to read it with me. It’s rare to get a chance to read a book with the author and ask questions as you go – I hope you’ll take advantage and join in.

When: It starts March 9th, and you can sign up now.
Where: On goodreads. But live Q&As will be hosted elsewhere.
How: We’ll read two chapters a week. You can join late, just catch up!

Each week we’ll cover a couple of chapters, you can ask questions which I’ll answer, we’ll schedule live Q&As and you’ll get far more than your money’s worth for what you paid for the book. You’ll likely witness me arguing with myself as I know I don’t agree with everything I wrote back then. Who knows, it might lead to a sequel or new writing about ideas in the book that haven’t aged well.

Interested? Join the group on GoodReads, which makes it easy to have discussions and follow along.

If you don’t own the book, now is a great time to grab a copy. Hope you’ll join.

    scott, you are a great inspiration and proof that in the spectrum of digital publishing some people have the gift of great depth, insights and a sense of what is relevant. Your writing works perfectly for me!

    As a computer guy like you would put it, I have a UI, user interface, problem.

    You might think that in this day and age a web site like GoodReads used by gazillions would have be as error proof as income tax. You would be wrong.
    I have sent in a help request to GoodReads, and if ever I can get started then I will be happy to join the group.

    Plan B is to join again, but use a different name this time. It’ll all work out.
