Diana Kander’s latest book, “The Curiosity Muscle,” is a novel tackling the rise and plateau of a gym franchise and why most companies reaching the peak of their potential lose their curiosity and crash into irrelevance. It’s a great follow-up to her New York Time’s bestseller “All In Startup: Launching a New Idea When Everything Is On The Line.” @dianakander
