Book Dives Newsletter

Book Dives is a bi-weekly newsletter aimed at diving deep into non-fiction books. We want to move beyond just shallow summaries and really dig into the fundamental lessons from the books we read.

    Ultimately, the most valuable part of non-fiction books is not the summary, nor is it the background stories the author tells. The real value in these books are the ideas and their applications to our lives. Specifically, for each new issue we write:

    • 😎 A "Super Summary" where we not only describe the book, but also what value the reader can expect to get out of it *and* who we recommend the book to
    • πŸ“œThe best quotes from the book that we think really encapsulates the main lessons and message
    • πŸ“– Key Lessons: This is our main course. Here we go through the book to explain the most valuable overall learnings. Sometimes this is chapter by chapter; but other times, it is a set of lessons that is formed through connecting the common themes and learnings from multiple chapters. Throughout these, we offer additional context, analysis, and examples of how they can be applied in real life

    Here are some books we've done in the past:
