• For more than 40 years, busy professionals have turned to Soundview to find the latest ideas and strategies from the best business books so they can stay up-to-date and thrive in their careers. We review thousands of full-length business books each year and select those with best new, innovative ideas to be included as quick-read summaries. Each summary includes just the best, most actionable insights from the full-length book. As each new summary is published, it is released on our website/app where you can read or listen to it at your convenience. We’ll let you know as new summaries become available.
  • All plans include access to 1 to 2 new book summaries delivered to your digital library each week (approximately 7 new summaries each month) + access to our archive of thousands of previously released book summaries. Upgrading to our Professional Plan gives you audio versions of all summaries, access to live webinars plus past events, and our monthly The Edge newsletter. You'll also unlock all website and app features including custom bookshelves, highlighting, note-taking, and downloading for offline access. Upgrading to our Premier Plan unlocks access to our video library which contains concise takeaways from the best minds in business.
  • Yes. All plans include text versions of the summaries. Professional and Premier plans also include audio.
  • Our book summaries are typically 4-8 printed pages in length. Most can be read in 20 minutes or less. Our audio summaries usually run about 10-20 minutes long.
  • You can read, watch, or listen to as many summaries as you have time for. There are no limits or restrictions. Read as much as you want, anytime you want.
  • New book summaries are released every week. We’ll notify you by email and/or app notification as these new summaries become available.
  • Absolutely! All of our book summaries can be accessed through a web browser on conventional desktop/laptop computers and all mobile devices (phones, tablets, etc.). Our website is mobile-friendly, so it will automatically resize to fit any screen you’re using. For frequent viewing of your Library on your mobile phone, we recommend you download our free iOS or Android app.
  • We do. For our best multi-users rates, please visit summary.com/contact-sales and let us know how many people will need access to the summaries. We’ll get back in touch with you as soon as we can (usually the same day).
  • We do not offer single summary purchases, but if you are in need of a bulk order of book summaries, please contact us.
  • Occasionally there may be instances when we cannot secure the necessary permissions to summarize a book in a timely fashion. Our goal is to provide coverage of the best business books as fast as we can, so in these instances our editors will provide a subjective BookSnap until a summary becomes available.
