Publisher's Summary

It takes the average person 49.5 minutes to read 7,000 words. For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly three-and-a-half percent of your day, I believe the wisdom in this book to be well worth it's value. 

Here's my sales pitch: The writing will not be quite up to the same standard, and the formatting is also not done by a professional. If you need a story behind each point to reinforce it, then please, go and buy the original. However, if, like me, you aren't a fan of the "fluff" that comes along with most books and would much rather skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed, enjoyable way including key takeaways - then I believe this is the book for you.

Save yourself time and money. I am only releasing summaries of the books that have made a true positive impact in my life. If you decide to purchase, I truly hope you enjoy and benefit from it. Amplify your knowledge in a simple, efficient manner. Take action, get your copy today!

Great for those who don’t have time to waste

I love audio books especially when they are condensed into a great insightful format that allows we to get through more subject matter in less time. This does that perfectly.

Chapter summaries

I really like the end of chapter summaries for a quick refresher. I was hoping for a summary of all the summaries at the end. I gave this summary of Grit to my grandson in his now third year of college majoring in Sports Psychology & an aspiring baseball pitcher who pitched in college nationals last year as a 17 year old. Now because of COVID, baseball was canceled & we will see whether he perservers with grit & passion or changes course. I will also give this to a son who is a parent to one gritty successful child & another child who is unmotivated & gives up easily when faced with needed practice. This parent was a psych major so should find it interesting. Your audio summary is helpful for busy people & a good summary of what I read in Duckworth’s book. Thank you.

Great summary!

The complete version of this book has a ton of great reviews, but the negative ones all said the same thing...could be drastically shortened. This summary does the job. Two Thumbs up!
