generally hangs out in the non-fiction section of the bookstore.

Headway summarizes each chapter, hitting only the high points.
This book, “Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell is 260 pages long. “Headway” boils it down to 11 key points which will take about 18 minutes to read.
Think of it as an even briefer Cliff Notes. Bite-sized summaries you can read waiting in the school carpool line. If you don’t even have 20 minutes to stop and read, Headway reads it for

Headway is expensive as apps go. $60 a year for unlimited reading and listening. It does have a 7-day free trial. Just remember to unsubscribe before the trial ends or you’ll be charged for the
entire year all at once.
You can use the app for free, getting one text or audio summary per day.
A good and fast way to find new ideas and thoughts and boost your knowledge.
