Don't have time to get through all the books on your reading list? Guidelines summarises the key takeaways from 43 best-selling self-help books in one place.

Do you struggle to find the time to pick up a book?

ipad book newBooks are great aren't they? So full of wisdom and useful ideas, reading is a great way to improve yourself. The only issue is finding enough time to sit down and actually read. On top of that, there are so many great books to choose from, we often end up with more books to read than hours in the day...

Do you forget what you've already read?

This is another common problem - we get so caught up trying to read more and more, it’s easy to lose sight of the purpose of reading which is to learn new things. Taking action after reading a book isn’t always easy, which is why I’ve written a number of book summaries to help people quickly remind themselves of the content and take action on the most important ideas.

Guidelines is a collection of insights and carefully considered lessons that respect your time. Nothing is superfluous, and every insight is valuable. There are a lot of books about productivity, leadership, and general self-improvement I might recommend — but if I had to advocate for just one, it would be Paul's Guidelines.

I finished reading “Guidelines” over the weekend and loved it. Lots of good stuff in there. After reading so much stuff you really start to see common themes and Paul did a great job of listing some big takeaways and action points. Thanks for making this resource!

Who am I?

My name is Paul Minors. I am a productivity blogger and consultant. I love reading and you may have already seen that I have a number of book summaries already available for download. These summaries are a great way you can quickly remind yourself about important ideas and action steps. For me, reading is one of the best ways I can improve myself, learn new things and become a better person. I've thoroughly enjoyed curating the content I've read over the years and distilling everything into Guidelines.
