The Federal News Radio book club ahead this Wednesday…

with 2 comments

speed-of-trustComing up this Thursday Wednesday… the first Federal News Radio Book Club. (Earlier I said the incorrect day — it is Wednesday!) Our first book is The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything by Stephen M.R. Covey. [More about the Federal News Radio Book Club here… and here… and if you have an Kindle eBook, you can have the book downloaded in minutes.]

I have had several people who e-mailed me to ask if they need to be some place specific to participate in the book club. The answer is yes — just be near your radio or steaming on your computer on Thursday, Nov. 19 for In Depth with Francis Rose, heard on Federal News Radio 1500 AM and between 1-3p ET. On Nov. 19, we will have Covey on the program… also joining us will be Dave Winnergren, the Defense Department’s deputy CIO and one of the best readers — and best managers. More on that in just a moment… I will also be there as will, of course, Francis Rose.

So… it’s that easy.

Some additional resources…

Finally… thoughts as you’re reading the book… send your comments or questions.
There are all sorts of ways to reach us.

  • Let us know your question before the show. Just leave a message on our new comment line: 877-936-8250. You can be anonymous if that works for you. We can then ask your question or play your comment on the air. The ‘who are you’ question is less important then what you say.
  • E-mail me at chris at
  • E-mail Francis at frose at
  • Use Federal News Radio’s ‘sound off’ page.

And we’ll see you on the radio… Thursday, Nov. 19th between 1-3p ET. (We’ll, I’m on each day, but… that’s when we’ll be talking about the book.)
