About Us

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 20-minute audio summaries, helping our users maximize their time and business intelligence. We have continued to enhance our summaries with interactive author webinars, and a growing library of video tips. We also have a comprehensive multi-media library for integration into corporate training and online education programs. Soundview's subscribers worldwide include CEOs, government leaders, entrepreneurs, business consultants, academics, and students.
