Behind every great leader is a great library or, more accurately, a full e-reader. A new app aims to help busy business executives maintain their lifelong learner status by offering a subscription service of business book summaries.

Created by publishing company getAbstract that has a library of thousands of best-selling books, the app enables subscribing users to download the summaries as a PDF or via the app with the promise of learning the book’s main points in less than 10 minutes.

Each “abstract” is logically structured by editors and business journalists to maximize reading time and subscription plans can be personalized to industry. The summaries are also available in audio format to take multi-tasking to a whole new level.

The getAbstract app is available in the iTunes store or via Google Play for Apple and Android devices.
