Shortform vs. other book summary apps
💎 Quality over quantity: By offering only a carefully chosen selection of book summaries, decision fatigue is reduced.
🔄 Book comparisons: The Authors' statements are analyzed and compared to other literature and current research.
❓Reflection Questions: Acquired knowledge is tested through self-reflection questions helping to implement the learnings into your daily life.
🧅 Shortforms unique content structure: Shortform rarely follows the table of contents of the summarized book. They create their logical content structure.
My idea to improve Shortform's book summaries
I don't want to give the impression to posess the competence to make a better job than the people at Shortform. However, I have noticed 2 things which could be improved.
📹 A short 3-minute video summarizing the overall concept of the book.
🔎 When clicking the table of contents, no subheadings or headings are shown. Having a table of contents with hyperlinks to the corresponding paragraph would be nice.
