I read a lot but I don’t retain the information very well. To resolve this, I began the habit of taking notes of all the interesting ideas & concepts that catch my attention.
This page hosts a full list of the books I’ve read over the years and will continue to update as I read more.
I have tried to condense the main ideas of each book in a few sentences, but feel free to click on the linked title to browse my full notes on it. My notes are informal and often contain quotes, key nuggets, and personalized thoughts from the book that I save for future reference and reflection.
If a find a particular book interesting to you, I highly recommend buying the book to get much more context and meaning. My summaries are not meant to substitute the book.
