Shortage of reading time sparks a trend of micro-summaries for people who don’t have time even to read regular summaries. I guess 24o characters could suffice to summaries almost anything as Twitter made it possible. Originally, started by Woody Allen’s famous quote “I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in 20 minutes. It involves Russia.”
A few tongue-in-cheek macro-summaries of feel-good books:
>1 How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie: Simile. Listen. Look interested. Remember people’s names. Repeat.
>2 The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle: Stop thinking about the past, stop anticipating the future. In fact, stop thinking. Now.
>3 Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson: Because they keep moving the cheese, you really need to be ready for the cheese to move. Got it?
>4 Outliers: The Story Of Success by Malcolm Gladwell: Get born at the right moment, at the right place, to the right family and then still you have to work really hard. The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell is number 6 on The 100 Best Books of the Decade according to The Times
