We're in business to help you thrive

Founded in 1978, Soundview pioneered the concept of distilling the key points and ideas of full-length business books into easy-to-read 4- to 8-page text and audio summaries, helping our users maximize their time and business intelligence.

Book Summaries

We only summarize the best new business books into 4- to 8-page text and 10- to 20-minute audio summaries. All of our plans also include access to our complete archive of book summaries covering the best business books ever written.


We host monthly webinars with top authors like John Maxwell, Liz Wiseman, Stephen M.R. Covey, Daniel Pink, Patrick Lencioni, Marshall Goldsmith, and more. Professional and Premier plans offer access to these live events plus on-demand access to all past events.


Our Premier Plan provides access to our complete video library.
