Chamber Book Club – When the White House Calls from Salt Lake Chamber on Vimeo.

This month the Salt Lake Chamber Book Club features a work that is rolling off the presses this month from the University of Utah Press. It tells the life story of one of Utah’s most prominent citizens, beginning with his birth in Germany through his years as a successful builder and real estate developer—with business interests in broadcasting, manufacturing, distribution, and banking—and ultimately to his life as a diplomat.

Former U.S. Ambassador John Price represented the nation in Republic of Mauritius, the Republic of Seychelles, and the Union of the Comoros, three Indian Ocean island nations off the east coast of Africa. When the White House Calls is a compelling story of the American Dream realized, and the importance of service to country.

Chamber Book Club: “Fake Work”

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Do you ever wonder what books Utah’s top business leaders are reading? We’re excited to introduce a new program, Chamber Book Club. We’ll sit down with members of the Chamber Board of Governors, distinguished guests and the occasional author to discuss their favorite reads, inspirational books or books that helped them improve their skills.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
~ Margaret Fuller

To kick off Book Club, we have an author, Gaylan W. Nielson. He co-authored a book called “Fake Work,” which explores, “Why people are working harder than ever but accomplishing less, and how to fix the problem.”
