The study group is open to multiple-generations (junior high - grandparents).  We are very much looking forward to combining the ages while all discussing the same text!

What is the purpose of reading and discussing these books?
These classics are full of potent, "secret" information that has been used for centuries to run, move and impact the world.  Only a very small portion of the population of the world has read all these books - certainly less that 1%!  Knowledge of the greatest ideas and events is the starting point of a great education, and it is vital to leadership preparation.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
