Why FlashBooks Book Summaries?

book summaries

90% of us don't get past chapter one after beginning a book we'd like to read.

There are a number of excuses that prevent us from finishing the books -- like time, for example -- But even if you could block out the time and be more effective with it -- it STILL takes a long time to read a book from start to finish.

But what if there was a better way to read?

What if there was a way for you to stop making excuses and feeling guilty about letting the books you want to read collect dust by the bedside?

Well, now there is.

It's time to put those excuses to bed by subscribing to FlashNotes -- where we read the best books, extract the best content, and put it all into a 6-page FlashNote so you can put the key insights into action immediately.

Insights you can act on.

We sort through the fluff and deliver only what you want + need from the book, making it easy for you to get the content you want from the books you don't have time to read.

We do our best to cut the fluff so and provide you actionable insights you can use and apply immediately to achieve greater outcomes in your personal + professional life.

...all without wasting any of your valuable time.
