Who has time to read? Next time, try this method to get the gist of most books in 10-minutes or less:
First, read the entire table of contents. Get a sense of the structure and flow of the book.
Then, read the last paragraph or two of each chapter. The author usually summarizes the main points there.
You should get a good sense of the book and can dive deeper into the chapters that were the most compelling. Of course, this only works with non-fiction, but that’s 90% of my reads anyhow.
