Becoming a great entrepreneur is all about a willingness to learn more and accept what you don't know. That's why it's so important that entrepreneurs read. But when you're running a business and balancing a personal life, it's not always easy to commit to your book list.

In addition to the summaries, you'll also get a copyable, customizable Evernote notebook with editable versions of book summaries so you can take notes for yourself. There's also a 20-page PDF that will help you remember what you read, 10 more science-sourced reading guides, a free copy of The 4 Minute Millionaire, and a free copy of 2-Minute Pep Talks, filled with 67 short messages of inspiration.
