      Frederick, Just so you know...the group meets once a month and reads a different book for each month's meeting and discussion (so the Golem book was a previous one, just check the meetup site for which book is being read and discussed at each future one.) Sounded from your note that you thought we might be discussing that one book over multiple meetings, so just wanted to clarify in case you did think that!

    I feel fortunate to be part of this wonderful group. Each time I've come, I've appreciated the insightful, sometimes humorous and very thoughtful discussions.

    Many thanks to Marilyn for organizing and preparing the meetings, and for being such a great leader. It makes all the difference.

    This is a fantastic book. I fell into the story after just reading a couple of pages.

    Marilyn, it looks like the cover of last month's book is still in place.

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.
