...just to calm you. There's no catch, but this is because I've done it, lol.

Ok, of course, a lot of threads list the heavily popular books like "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", "Power of Habit", e.t.c. Well, you can read all those books for free if you sign up for an Amazon service called "Kindle Unlimited". The "free" part is because they give you a 30 day trial which costs you exactly free.99!!

Anyway, since a lot of those books include anecdotal stories to drive the point home you can shorten your read time by omitting those stories. Leading me to my next point.

Just read the summaries. The professionally published book summaries just cut away those life stories and go right to the meat and takeaways of the book.

Ok, well, you can literally read one summary in 15-30 minutes. If you invest an hour a day reading you can read three of those books easily in one hour. Well, in the course of a week that translates to 21 books.

- Sign up for free trial of Kindle Unlimited
- Go to Amazon and type in "summary + book title" (e.g Summary Rich Dad Poor Dad) and it will show you the summarized version of the book.
- Download 20 of those books (or as many of them as you want) then read three a day!!

Anyway, that's how I read 20 business books (which I really need) in 1 week.

@Argue - from one of the self-help books I read "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" or something like that I literally organized my closet, found $250 worth of stuff to sell on Craigslist/Ebay and made tons of space, lol.

Previously I had always been organizing the old fashioned way not having any system. I've also read tons more like "The One Thing", and "Think And Grow Rich". I'm so hyped !!!

I've read a few hundred summaries.

None of them stick as much as reading the actual book.

There's a reason for the "stories". That's because stories stick. Quick summaries don't. The way I look at it: I read business books to influence my thinking pattern. That pattern is most affected by reading/listening to something over a longer period of time. A quick summary, much like a quick random article, is easily forgotten.

Yes, and that is why I try to get the actual whole books.

It is like eating CAKES.

Do you want it WHOLE like this:

Or CRUMBS, bits and pieces, like this:

ZF a summary would be more like a sample cross-section of various areas of the cake. Now, granted for select business books I do read the whole thing.

You read 20 book summaries per week.

Not 20 books per week.

It's the same as reading articles (albiet good, educational ones).
