πŸ“š Do book summaries work?

Low-quality book summaries waste everyone’s time. And you can’t beat reading the original book. But if you want to survey a topic, decide if a book is worth reading or recap the main points in a book that you’ve already read then reading high-quality book summaries will help. And if you want to really understand and remember what you’re reading, then writing high-quality book summaries is even better. Want examples? Check out The Art of Living’s 50+ nonfiction book summaries to learn more.
