Calling all business books

The Danville Area Chamber of Commerce recently received 20 business books from a local entrepreneur for its members to use, and it has invited the public to donate more.

Rick Johnson, a Danville financial planner and an owner of a home improvement business, donated 20 of his business books to the Chamber earlier this month. The titles include "The Great Game of Business: The Only Sensible Way to Run a Company" by Jack Stack; "Customer Intimacy" by Fred Wiersema; "Moving from Talk to Action" by Richard Whitley; and "How to Win Customers and Keep Them for Life" by Michael Le Boeuf.

"It could grow," said Melony Newman, Chamber president, about the book collection. "We're hoping it can grow into more." Chamber members are welcome to borrow the books.

She also noted that the Chamber is sponsoring an Entrepreneur Expo at the San Ramon Community Center from 4-7 p.m., Thursday, March 15.
