Book Summaries and Reviews

Every week I try and review a book. I usually read multiple books at a time and as I complete one (or get close to completing one) I challenge myself to write a summary. Writing helps me summarise the key lessons and it’s then easier to share. I usually share on Mondays on LinkedIn. Here is a list from the last few months. Hoping you like. Links to LinkedIn are in book titles. Happy reading.
