Updated: Oct 19
那雙看不見的手- 龔行憲、龔行健兄弟的奮鬥故事是一本難得以談兩兄弟的自傳型書藉，更難得的是「閱讀看世界」將同時邀請這兩位分別在光纖產業和癌症研究有重大影響的兄弟一同和本書共同作者，也是分享會主持人李喬琚一起來聊聊。 這是他們的故事！也是一個時代的故事！更是懷念單親媽媽含莘教育他們的故事。他們一位是人稱「矽谷光纖教父」的創業創投家；一位是癌症研究家。從留學、移民、事業、還鄉貢獻的故事背後，是白手起家，努力踏實的自我成就；更充滿人生智慧。 本書有龔先生以及作者簽名限量版，售價含寄費$25 (hard copy), GMSV將此收益捐助灣區火災災情之用，聊表心意，如有意收藏，請在以下留言，或message我們, or email at BayAreaRegister@gmail.com Call at 408-256-1306。此外，讀者可利用以下連結，直接購買本書電子版，電子版(soft copy)預購：here.
