About TLDR
I love to read and I love to share... so I thought, what if I could make quick summaries of the books I really care about, slap a bunch of lipstick on em so they're delightful to consume, and then share what comes out with my friends that want to understand why I liked these books so much but didn't have time to read.

I believe in
* Clarity: say what I mean, don't try to sound smart
* Simplicity: clean and delightful over comprehensive
* Reverent: can't replace the book, just spreading awareness
* Quality: only great books

A test subject of Alex Maslow’s I was surprised to find myself swept with an overwhelming sense of spirituality—not in the religious sense, but a sense of deep connection with everyone who was there as well as the rest of the universe Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos) Awe in Nature Psychedelics Raves Comon Hive Triggers
  • 19. Happiness comes from between… from getting the right relationships between yourself and others, yourself and your work, and yourself and something larger than yourself.
