Brian Johnson’s PhilosophersNotes is one of the most innovative and useful tools I have come across in the transformational industry in ages. The powerful information Brian packs into each “note” is amazing. He distills the best of the best.
I love receiving my PhilosophersNotes! These essential nuggets carry the juice, light, and knowledge to help raise the consciousness of people around the world.

Brian’s ability to filter through information, highlight the big idea, drawing together key points and posing them in an understandable fashion for practical use is a gift. Time constraints being the number-one reason given for not regularly reading self development books, PhilosophersNotes are the obvious answer. By allowing me to consume more conscious media than I had previously been able to, PhilosophersNotes have become what may well prove to be a life-improving investment.

PhilosophersNotes is an idea whose time has come. Starting from some of the world’s most important books, Brian’s masterful syntheses combine deep insights, humor, and practical applications in a manner ideally suited for our busy lives. I’m hooked!

Brian has a gift for communicating the gist of serious books in a fun, inspiring way. He is so consistently and authentically upbeat that one learns to see value in everything he points to. For those who want a focus on the useful, compelling parts of books in a pithy, engaging style, you can do no better than to read Brian Johnson’s PhilosophersNotes.

I’ll keep this short because I’m pressed for time. You’re pressed for time too. That’s why I’m sold on the PhilosophersNotes. I have hundreds of books sitting of my shelf waiting to be read. And, while I’m looking forward to diving into them, the Notes give me the perfect introduction to a title’s big ideas and help me pick which book I want to focus on next.
