Reading List

Summaries, Notes, and Reviews from Books I’ve Read

Most of the important things I’ve learned have come from books, articles, speeches, and other media.

This page shares a full list of book summaries I have compiled during my reading.

If a particular book sounds interesting to you, click on the full book summary and you can browse all of my notes on it.

The notes and summaries are meant to be concise, reminding me of high-level concepts and not trying to recreate the whole book. You can use them to remind yourself of something you read or to decide on something new to read.

These book summaries are not organized by category, so you might find a self-help book followed by a business book followed by a psychology book. If you would like to browse my book suggestions for a particular category, then check out my reading list instead.

It’s practical and refreshing take on the life of a creator.
