Great resource!

I love ideas but can’t seem to finish books. This is a great resource for guys like me, like audio Cliff Notes, highlighting the best of the books in the context of real life.

Highly recommend!

Deep dives into leading books

John is a deep thinker who pulls out deep truths from leading business and mindset books. What emerges is as hot as lava and hardens like igneous rock. More listenable to other podcasts reviewing and recommending books. If you enjoy “Read to Lead”, you’ll enjoy this as well. It’s a different, but needed, take.
