Answers to frequently asked questions

Imagine being able to access the minds of the brightest brains in the world, people like Warren Buffet, Seth Godin, Yuval Noah Harari, Simon Sinek, Mariana Mazzuccato, people who have committed to their field, learned, and then decided to share all their knowledge with us through their powerful books, brimming with ideas.
Imagine having a team of people looking for the best of these books, reading them, analysing them, discussing them and condensing them into synopses that you can read or listen to in 15 minutes.
4books is this, it is a team of people who are constantly working for you, to provide you with daily access, ideas which will change your life, both professional and private.

4books is a library of ideas, lessons and possibilities. Millions of books have been written around the world, but only a few of these books contain ideas that are capable of revolutionising the work and private life of all those who read them. 4books selects only those books, the ones that can create the spark which can change your life, the ones from which you can really learn something useful. After selecting the best books, the 4books team reads them one by one, analyses them, discusses them in a group and after understanding them thoroughly, creates a tailor-made overview presenting the main ideas. You can read or listen to these overviews in about 15 minutes, experiencing their true value and using them to build a better version of yourself, day by day, one step at a time.

4books already contains hundreds of original book selections, created by a team of professionals from each professional sector, which in about 15 minutes of reading or listening allow you to learn the fundamental ideas contained within the best books in the world.
