Are You Not Destroying The Works Of Authors?

Reading our book insights (larns) does not affect the works of the author but enables people to discover great books and ideas. So our book insights create a new market and expand the one that exists.

Why Focus On Nonfiction Rather Than Fiction?

Nonfiction books are usually based on facts and actual events. They are easy to be broken down to exactly what the author means which is not the same as fiction books, which are fabricated and based on the author’s imagination. Short stories, novels, myths, legends, and fairy tales are all considered fiction which comes with subplots, metaphors, etc., that may make it complicated to understand the main idea.

Why Do You Make Your Book Insights Free?

It’s our mission to support lifelong learning and we believe making key ideas from some of the best-selling nonfiction books is a way to make this possible. This also enables people to discover great books and ideas.
