I´ve read a few dozens of books and uncountable blog articles on the internet about business, marketing and entrepreneurship in the last years. In the beginning I read as many books as possible – soaking them in but recognizing that I forget most of the information a book offered me after reading the next 2-3 books.
I started summarizing them to get more out of the books and being able to re-read them from time to time.
Once started summarizing and sharing them with friends I started my blog selfvestors because this was way easier to share the insights I got from books and articles which everybody who might be interested.
This is my kinda 3-stage-process of reading a book. Reading, summazing and compressing for my blog. Through repetition and summarizing I can get the most value out of the book.
