I was inspired by Derek Sivers book list and have “borrowed” his FAQ philosophy on personal notes from books I have read:

  • My notes are not a summary of the book. They are derived from highlighted sections that resonated with me.
  • These notes do not replace the book. You need to read the book to gain a full context and derive meaning from content that may not be relevant to me.
  • I use these notes to re-read and reinforce the core ideas so that they continually shape my thinking and actions. These notes are especially handy to access on my phone when I am not at home with easy access to my book collection.
