Knowledge is not enough

Through writing alone, a nearly infinite amount of invaluable knowledge has been made available.

But our time is precious.

That’s why business leaders and personal growth enthusiasts often turn to summaries instead of the books.

This is convenient, time-saving, and smart. But unfortunately, there’s a catch…

Regular book summaries are rarely detailed enough to fully grasp the concepts and ideas presented. Meaning you may save time but you won’t learn much either.

But even if you read books cover-to-cover, that doesn’t guarantee results.

Simply because there is only one thing that truly helps you evolve.

And that is taking action.


What is Books In Action?

Books In Action summarizes bestsellers in business, leadership, and personal development. But most importantly, it presents you with actionable steps to apply the knowledge where you need it most.

From overcoming business challenges by asking yourself the right questions to enhancing your focus with powerful mindfulness exercises–with Books In Action you’ll see results.

You no longer have to read the entire book to distill its value.

With Books In Action, you can directly implement strategies, ideas, habits, and routines from the world’s most brilliant minds and top performers.

And you can start taking action within minutes.

Learn only from the best

Apply the knowledge of the world’s masters—without the need to read all of their books, attend dozens of seminars, or follow time-consuming courses.

We carefully listed business- and life-altering actions as proposed in the books of Steve R. Covey, Elon Musk, Angela Duckworth, David Allen, Carol S. Dweck, Tony Robbins, and many more bestselling authors and world-class experts.

Time is your most valuable asset. We enable you to use it wisely.
