Neil's Notes ...

Nuggets From Seriously Good Books

[Neil Dempster's Version of CliffsNotes (US) and Coles Notes (CDN)]

"Education is not filling a bucket ... but lighting a fire." — William Yeats

We're all aware that reading business and professional development books is an excellent method to 'stay on top of your game' and expand your intellectual capacity. Paradoxically, the number of people who read—even one book a year—is very small. The typical explanation for this? Time!

To counteract this dilemma (and help you with your learning), we've transcribed Neil's handwritten notes from some of the more influential books he's read and placed them here for your review. While these notes will never replace reading the book yourself, they'll be an excellent source for the key concepts found in the book.
