Great Breakdowns

As an exited founder who is constantly consuming this type of content, Alex’s breakdowns are thoughtful and succinct. Even for books and articles that I’ve read before, it’s a helpful reminder. Someone’s we read something that isn’t immediately relevant to us, this has been a great way to visit (and revisit) a lot of concepts quickly.
