What Is Your Book Summary Philosophy?
There are TWO principles that shape our book summaries and make this program unique:
|#1: The Insight Principle|
| “Books don’t change people, paragraphs do and sometimes sentences. They may lodge themselves so powerfully in our mind that its effect is enormous when all else is forgotten.” – John Piper
You may forget a book’s page numbers, but you’ll never forget its’ worldview-shaping insights.
Accelerate identifies these paragraphs and sentences. After spending hours analyzing a book, our team extracts the key insights and then strategically presents them in a way that is easy to grasp. More than summarizing books chapter-by-chapter, we focus on maximizing reader comprehension and retention.
|#2: The 20% Principle|
|“80% of a book’s main insights are found in 20% of the pages. So without apology, I ransack books for what I can get in the little time I have in this season of life.” – David Mathis
In other words, while most of a book’s pages exist to illustrate and solidify a handful of main ideas, these main ideas reside within 20% of the pages. Accelerate book summaries give you access to this 20%, allowing you to quickly grasp the book.
