A modern day approach to expanding our knowledge

I LOVE this in depth summary that is given for EACH book you choose to read or find if it is something that interests you and it also goes the extra mile with key points and features that the book includes. I especially appreciate this because I’m an avid reader who very often purchase books that I’m unable to get through due to personal preferences and failure to keep my attention or focus on the story. When that happens it’s so disheartening that I’ve typically gone back to those books once finished others that attract my attention and finish them JUST BECAUSE. This app eliminates that situation with the informative areas of the book they showcase and make it very simple for those who aren’t bibliophiles to absorb the shorter version of the books message and they are armed with knowledge they didn’t have 20 minutes prior. I RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL BOOK LOVERS(bc we can purchase whole book if it piques our interests)AND FOR ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FEED THEIR BRAIN WITH FACTUAL, INFORMATIVE AND EDUCATE THEMSELVES ABOUT VARIOUS TOPICS THEY OTHERWISE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN PRIVY TO.
BRAVO TO THE MIND BEHIND THIS IDEA AND APP!!!!!

So worth it!

I was hesitant to subscribe to another thing with a monthly payment, but this is so totally worth it. My attention span is ridiculous, and I don’t usually find the time to read the books that i want to bc I’m in grad school and have so much reading to do!! It’s also really hard for me to decide what to read, so I waste a lot of available time...I realize this is the most first-world thing, I’m a little ashamed. In any case, I didn’t hold out a lot of hope that this would help, but it really has been awesome. There are so many titles on here that I’ve wanted to read, and the way the info is broken down is good info, makes sense, and the whole thing is very user friendly. Obviously I still plan to read full books as well, but this has helped me with that also bc of the “summary screen” at the beginning of each reading/book which lists specifically who the book is best for - and that has saved me from buying some of those that I thought sounded interesting but were really aimed at something else. Definitely one of my best subscriptions!
