How do we do it
All our authors are bookworms and bibliophiles. Therefore, they do not mind reading books a few times while highlighting the most original ideas and insights. Moreover, they are adept at breaking down versatile histories and complex ideas in an easily digestible way, at the same time fully relevant to the original book and to your personal and professional development!
All 12-minute microbooks are written in such a way that they can be read and heard completely independently of the book they are summarizing. In other words, these are not just a random list of key insights and highlights, but meaningful, self-contained accounts combining questionable ideas into interesting descriptions through arguments, anecdotes, and key quotes.
Our library
Our library (updated weekly) contains original works in 25 different sections and more than 2,500 nonfiction books, most of them available in three languages: English, Portuguese and Spanish.
In short, there is little for everyone in our library. To make things better, if you can’t find the book you’re looking for, just ask for it and our team will synthesize it into a 12-minute microbook for your enjoyment.
Original content
In addition to summaries of classics and bestsellers, we also create two types of original content:
12 minutes original. Work from home and focus on hot topics like the COVID-19 epidemic, or pick a little about each of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Learn the way you did in school – regardless of the subject.
12 minutes personality. Experience the extraordinary lives of the most influential people in history. Whether it’s Socrates or Einstein, or Beethoven, or Mary Curie, each of our biographies is a self-contained journey of discovery, exploring the childhood, achievements, and qualities of those who made our world great.
