Self-Help Book Summaries

There were two words written in the Temple of Apollo at Delhi— “know thyself.” 

Self-reflecting and knowing yourself is a multiplier skill in today’s world. If you know yourself, you can:

  • learn, unlearn, and re-learn faster
  • understand and play on your strengths
  • delegate and hire people to cover for your weaknesses
  • keep your ego in check so you don’t make (foolish) mistakes
  • come from a place of empathy when dealing with people


Self-help book summaries will help you explore these concepts.
