I just learned of the Executive Book Summaries product by Soundview [url]http://www.summary.com[/url] and I downloaded thier sample summary.
Basically, they summarize business related books into a 8 page summary hitting all the key points of the book. They have print and audio summaries available.
While I am trying to carve out more time to read, this product might save time and allow me to gain more knowledge sooner. I am sure that some of the summaries would cause me to want to read the entire book. I wouldn't want this as a shortcut, but more as a tool to guide what I read.
Anyone use this service or anything like it? What are your thoughts?
