What is ReadinGraphics?

ReadinGraphics summarizes top business and personal development books for busy entrepreneurs and corporate executives, so you can enrich yourself in less time, and achieve your success and breakthroughs. We cut through the clutter to bring ideas to life, making it easier to see, organize and apply insights to create breakthroughs.

How is ReadinGraphics different from other book summary services like Cliffs Notes?

The best learning comes not just from reading, but applying, connecting and relating our ever-evolving knowledge to real-life experiences. 

1) Most summary services offer text-only summaries, or even video summaries, all of which involve a sequential review of the materials. This makes it hard for us to recall the points after some time.  ReadinGraphics offers the world's first book graphic summaries, condensing key ideas from an entire book into a 1-page infographic.  This unique visual representation allows readers to literally see and connect the key ideas at a glance, consolidating the learning more effectively in the mind. 

2) Rather than present only the top 5 or 10 points from each book, our summaries comprehensively capture all the key ideas of a book in context (via our text and audio summaries) and then consolidate them visually via our graphic summaries.  This thorough and varied approach reinforces learning and retention

How do I know your summaries are accurate or of a good quality?

Feel free to check out the testimonials from our users, or download 2 free summaries via this link, to assess the quality.

If you’ve bought a summary and found that it’s a bad representation of the original book, please feel free to write to us and we’d be happy to refund it.

How detailed are your summaries?  How close are they to the original books?

In order to distill the key ideas in a 300-page book into a 10-15 page summary or a 1-page infographic, we need to rewrite/recreate most of the material. Generally, here’s what you can expect:

• Wherever possible, we’ll present all the key ideas from the book, including main concepts, arguments and how-to tips. At the end of each summary, we usually highlight the additional details in the original book that you could expect.

• Details of case studies, research and other stories are typically omitted in our summaries. We often outline several examples and/or use our own illustrative examples to bring across an important point.

• We seek to use a clear writing style and visually-appealing layout, hence the tone and structure of our summaries are likely to be different from the original book. However, the key quotes that we’ve included should give a sense of the authors’ style and tone.

What’s the best way to use ReadinGraphics summaries?

All our summaries come in text (pdf), graphic (pdf) and audio (mp3) formats, which you can download and save for use in any of your devices.  Monthly and annual subscribers can also read/listen to the material online.

We recommend that you start with the text summary (or the audio summary if you’re an auditory learner).  Then, use the 1-page graphic summary to mentally reinforce what you’ve read.

Revisit the summaries regularly—apply new tips, reflect on what you’ve learned and how your perspectives may have changed, and join the dots.

How do you choose the top personal/business development books? Can I recommend a book?

At the moment, we only feature carefully-handpicked books that can deliver results for business or personal development.

Only <10% of “best-selling” books make it to our shortlist. To shortlist a book, we (a) do extensive research on past reviews on the book, and (b) read the book to decide if the content is suitable.

We’re always looking out for great books and welcome your suggestions! Please write to us anytime at

I’m trying to print the text/graphic summaries but can’t get it to fit

For the text summaries, choose “fit to page” for your printer settings and it will fit nicely on A4 paper.

For the graphic summaries or infographics, they are by nature long and skinny.

• For personal reading, choose “fit to page” and print on A4. The font will be small but is generally legible. Alternatively, you can try printing the graphic in 2-3 parts on A4, like this:

• For table display or posters, generally A3 is a good size to see all the infographic components (and the sides can then be trimmed away). Any professional printer will be able to print the files using our high-res files in A3 or larger, with no major loss of resolution.

I don’t have a Paypal account. Can I pay via credit or debit card?

Yes, you can pay via credit or debit card either via Paypal or Stripe. Simply choose your preferred platform and select the Debit/Credit Card options provided.
