Power up your business book reading


Business book summaries done differently

The more leisurely summer months often lead your cool drink induced intentions to catch up on your reading. There’s ample opportunity to grab the sun glasses, take off outside into the welcome summer sun and open those fiction or non-fiction titles you’ve been promising yourself for the last few hectic months. Your time is valuable so where should you focus your business reading? Here’s an idea that may work for you.

A few months ago I came across this interesting take on gleaning information using business book summaries. In the good old days, you’d subscribe to a paid book summary service and receive these summaries in a newsletter-type service as well as online. Those days are long gone!

The service I’m introducing here is called Book Video Club and it delivers unique business book summaries using hand crafted videos. They use well-researched summaries of popular business books in less than 5 minutes, with each book narrated by an expert. You can subscribe to get these summaries sent directly to your inbox on their weekly schedule. Personally, I enjoy this strategy because it brings the ideas to you and gives you a few minutes to help decide your upcoming reading material. Your time is short and anything that can add value to what you're doing is a good thing. 

Check out the summary of Guy Kawasaki’s “Art of the Start 2.0” in this video so you can get a taste of what these summaries have to offer. 

Here are some of the current titles they’ve summarized.

Getting a 5-minute summary on those popular titles is so easy to keep up to date with and also helps when choosing those titles you’ll actually want to pick and read, when you do decide to curl up with a good (business) book

You can find out more and sign up for their service at Book Video Club (link) and “start reading (not) watching books now!” (Their words, not mine!) Do you think you might enjoy a service such as this? I’d be interested in your thoughts in the comments.
