What’s the Best Way to Learn from Personal Development Books?

ReadinGraphics’ summaries come in text, infographic and audio formats to cater to different learning styles. Below, you’ll find the free versions of all our self development book summaries.

The best way (or rather, the only way) to learn is to apply the insights. We recommend that you:
1. Read a complete book or the full book summary. [Or, read a few related summaries at one go to gain a broader perspective on a topic.]
2. Review the key ideas through our specially-designed infographics, to lock in the concepts visually.
3. Choose a framework, principle or action step and start applying it.
4. Return in a few weeks or months to review the same book/summary. You’ll probably realize that you now understand the same concept differently, and can now refine your approach.  Keep learning, reviewing and refining your approach in an upward cycle of growth!
