To participate, we require you to have read at least 50% of the book we're discussing and to try to attend at least half the meetings for the year. This facilitates our discussions by building trust and establishing a common vocabulary from the things we've read together before.
Bad Blood – John Carreyrou
352 pages; 11:37 audiobook
