Research shows little cognitive difference between listening to a book and reading one. Some people like holding the book in their hands while others love being able to highlight essential takeaways quickly with their Kindle.
When we read in Radical Mentoring groups, our purpose is practical, actionable takeaways. So, the format doesn’t matter, as long as the expectations are clear and your mentees understand they need to have to way to take notes and a system to turn those notes into a net-out. At the end of the day, whatever works best for the men reading the book is the way to go.
