Productivity Book Group

Productivity Book Group is a virtual, personal productivity book discussion club and podcast. All are invited to read the easily manageable selections and discuss these personal productivity and related books with the group!


We meet usually once (Winter and Summer sessions) or twice (Spring and Fall sessions) monthly. During the Spring and Fall sessions, we are covering approximately 100 pages per discussion, so you can set yourself a goal of about 10 pages of reading per day. It’s best not to wait until the last minute to read! 😉

If you use Google Calendar, it’s easy to keep up-to-date as you can subscribe by visiting and clicking on “+Google Calendar” icon on the lower-right corner of the Productivity Book Group calendar. We announce the next live discussions in the posts here (and syndicate to iTunes, etc.). You can also check and RSVP for the calls via Google+ events; RSVP is not required but is helpful so I know how many people to expect generally.


It’s easy! Read the selection of the book noted on the schedule and then join the teleconference call at the date/time in the calendar. As well, we may be experimenting with doing some discussions via Google+ Hangouts on Air so that we can have audio/visual interaction during the discussions, along with the teleconference bridge line patched in; we shall see!


Please visit our Upcoming Books page to see the next few reading selections and the dates of our live discussion calls. For prior book discussions, please visit our Episodes page for the archives of those calls.

We welcome your questions, concerns, recommendations and suggestions! We will definitely need substitute facilitators, volunteers to help spread the word about the reading group, and more, so please let me know if you have a particular skill-set you think can be of help. Thank you!

Here’s to your productive life,

Ray Sidney-Smith
