A service for entrepreneurs to get smarter, by reading books faster

Summaries of the best books on business, broken down into
5-minute daily emails that you can read with your morning coffee
How does Bookcelerator Summary work?
Entrepreneurs are always looking for the quickest paths to growth for their businesses, and themselves. We're here to help you on that journey.

The best books, rated by the community

Bookcelerator curates the best books on business by compiling upvotes from Product Hunt and reviews from Amazon and GoodReads. Take a look.


5-minute daily emails pushed straight to your inbox

We then craft easy-to-read 20-minute long summaries broken down into 5-minute daily emails that focus on the most important aspects of the book to accelerate the learning process.

Pick a book, and wake up to your first summary the next morning.

Test your knowledge

Once you've finished reading, take a short quiz to test your knowledge on key insights from the book, and further absorb the material.

Why Bookcelerator Summary?
Other services create a vast library of books and then leave the rest up to you, leaving you overwhelmed and unmotivated to maintain a steady pace of reading and learning. We've tested these services, and have used that insight to make something that truly creates a consistent habit of reading in our users.

By curating our books into batches that are rolled out throughout the year at a manageable pace, and by creating quizzes that test your knowledge and absorption of the material, users actually learn more and create a better path to growth.
