Blue Reads presents Swati Pandey“The Art of Being Unreasonable: Lessons in Unconventional Thinking
   
Blue Reads Event with Swati Pandey, journalist and collaborator with philanthropist Eli Broad on the New York Times Bestseller, “The Art of Being Unreasonable: Lessons in Unconventional Thinking”

Join us for a lively discussion about how Pandey came to her role as collaborator and the insights she gained from working with LA’s most unreasonable man to help write his first book. Moderated by KPCC’s Brian Watt.

Meet writer Swati Pandey '04, who collaborated with philanthropist Eli Broad to write the national bestseller, “The Art of Being Unreasonable.”

The book discusses how “reasonable” people come up with all the reasons something new and different can't be done, because no one else has done it that way. It shares the unreasonable principles—from negotiating to risk-taking, from investing to hiring—that have made Eli Broad a success. More at www.elibroad.com
