WHAT WE DO
CSNet Book Discussion Group is a lively and friendly group of professionals, who hold quarterly meetings to discuss interesting titles, selected from newly published business and management books from emerging authors.
Our meetings last 1½ hours, from 18.00 to 19.30 every 3 months. They are held in the round, and all attendees are encouraged to participate and ask questions of the selected author.
Subscription for members is £25 per annum, and for non-members attending a single discussion, it is £5.00. In addition, there is a small charge of £5.00 for refreshments provided at each discussion to be paid by all attendees.
GETTING IDEAS ACROSS
Selecting our first book proved to be relatively easy, as a colleague identified a book recently published, and the joint authors welcomed our approach. Since then, we have identified a steady stream of challenging books and willing authors.
We value the contribution made by the authors who willingly agree to attend our group discussions and to discuss their books with us. In return, books we review appear on our Website, and we make openings where possible to publicise their books in other areas.
We work with several publishers of management and business books to make contact with the authors we identify. In addition, the publishers identify and recommend suitable authors for us to discuss, as they like working with us. Publishers normally offer us a discount towards the purchase of books by their authors.
Thanks to the generosity of a committee member we have an excellent venue in Central London where we meet regularly for our very sociable and enlightening discussions.
