Author of the #1 international bestseller The Leader Who Had No Title
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.

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.

I love the PhilosophersNotes, but it’s not because I don’t have time to read. I subscribed to them because they’re fantastic reminders of books that have had a profound impact on my life. Instead of having to reread them in their entirely, though, I can skim one of these inimitable reviews and get not just the heart of its message, but a boost of inspiration and the feeling that I’m not the only one who sees the critical importance of this sort of wisdom in the world.

Not only because the books that Brian picks are the best of the best, but because of his amazing ability to extract the big ideas of each book and break them down into powerful, efficient, fun to read summaries. The ability to instantly apply this wisdom to my life coupled with the knowledge that makes it easy for me to decide what book I want to dive deeper into next makes PhilosophersNotes a priceless resource in my life.
