Agile Austin Book Club - The Premonition 1 of 1

Oct 21, 2021 · Austin, United States of America

*** For the duration, we'll run book club remotely with ZOOM ***

We're reading "The Premonition" by Michael Lewis. [Amazon: ]

We'll discuss the entire book at our October 21st meeting and pick the next book. (But if people resist closing it out, we'll extend into November. We are agile, bum-de-bum-bum-bup-bup-bup)

Remote Process
[NB: subject to change as we gain experience!]
We'll anchor our discussion in Zoom [], keep notes as we have done in Google Docs (see Discussion Notes below). We are using Mural ( to organize the discussion. If you're unfamiliar with Zoom or Mural, please go play with them a bit before we meet, and be on time (6pm) so you can acquaint yourself with our specific workflows. Mural and Zoom both run on browsers alone, but for a better experience we suggest you download and install the Zoom application on your Win or Mac PC.

We organize our discussion by posting up to three (real or virtual) sticky notes per person on the (real or virtual) whiteboard. Even if you're fully conversant with the process, please log into the meeting early enough to post your stickies by 6:20pm; we'll then select the first few topics and start the discussion by 6:30. Try to finish eating by 6:30 as well.

Discussion Notes
for this and all our books may be found here: (this recently changed). Book notes are open to comment by anyone (please do!) and you'll also find how to get REIMBURSEMENT for books and the READING LIST for possible future books.

About Book Club
We meet most months the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, so you can put that in your calendar. When we resume physical meetings we'll feed you, and if you come to most of the sessions, we'll even reimburse you for the book, so save that receipt.

We have not recorded Book Club sessions in the past, nor are there plans to do so in the near future. However, that could change:
