This week you will select and obtain a book from the Selected Leadership Books. which is attched
It is not necessary to inform your instructor of your book. Your assignment is to read the book in its entirety. After you read your selected book, you are to create an oral book presentation, much like a TedTalk style presentation and persuade your classmates to read the book. This presentation is to mimic a real live classroom presentation – thus the video should show YOU. Can you use a PowerPoint to help you address certain points, absolutely – but the objective is for you to persuade others to read the book and this cannot be done simply with a audio powerpoint presentation. The presentation should be somewhere around 7-10 minutes, dress appropriately (business attire), speak clearly and have fun.
When reading the book, focus on the following topics:
What is the book’s main argument?
Who seems to be the intended audience for the book?
How is the book structured?
Does the structure of the book (its various parts and chapters) reinforce its larger argument? How?
What kinds of sources, or examples, does the book offer in support of its argument, and which are most (and least) effective? Why?
How would you position the book in relation to our other reading assignments this term?
Does the author seem biased or prejudiced in any way and, if so, is that prejudice or bias the product of the author’s own background, as far as you can tell?
How persuasive is the book (if certain aspects are more persuasive than others, explain why).
Your review should have two goals: first, to inform the reader about the content of the book, and second, to provide an evaluation that gives your judgment of the book’s quality.
Incorporate the elements of the list above into a professional, scholarly book review presentation for your peers to view. Do not spend more than one-third of the presentation summarizing the book. The presentation should not be a chapter-by
chapter summary. The summary should consist of a discussion and highlights of the major arguments, features, trends, concepts, themes, ideas, and characteristics of the book. Much of your grade will depend on how well you describe
and explain the material in your own words and, even more important, how the book can be tied to the material we’ve covered thus far in our course. Your presentation must include at least two direct comparisons between your book and peer-reviewed
articles, if appropriate. The presentation should be approximately 7-10 minutes in length; this may vary slightly depending on the content of your book.
