Many years ago I started reading business books. I remember
reading First Break All The Rules, Good to Great, Who Moved My
Cheese, Love is the Killer App, Radical Leap, and many other great
books. I knew there had to be a faster way to get just the
highlights of the books I wanted to read, but I really didn't like
a lot of the offerings that were out there, so I would try one, and
then not use it.
More than a few but not that many years ago, I found one that
felt different. It felt different because it was not just a summary
of the book, but actionable information I could use. In this
conversation, I get to talk to the founders of that company, Steve
and Marisa Cunningham, who not only are married, but they work
together in their company, Readitfor.me.
How do they do it and stay sane? Why did they decide to launch
this awesome book summary service? How does Steve read a book a
day? All this and more is answered in this episode of Conversations
About Steve and Marisa Cunningham and Readitfor.me
