Revolutionizing the Way We Digest Ideas From Books: With Andrew Zavada From


Designed with Canva --

Reading lots of books is great if you want to improve your writing.

But if your ultimate aim is to improve aspects of yourself, your life or your business, reading becomes nothing but mere intellectual entertainment if you don’t apply what you learn.

So when I met Andrew Zavada and learned he’s the co-founder of an online service that helps readers apply key ideas from bestselling nonfiction books, I could not resist inviting him on my podcast and YouTube Channel. I wanted to learn more about his business.

Andrew wasn’t sure though.

“I don’t know. English isn’t my first language and I started learning it only a few years ago,” he said.

I’m glad he didn’t listen to his worries. 

In Episode 117 of Stolaroid Stories, you’ll hear him talk about, a young startup that teaches you how to put books into practice. provides book summaries of the best nonfiction books about business, personal development, problem solving, learning, creativity, communication, relationship, leadership and management.

But this isn’t just another platform where you can find book summaries for busy people. What makes special is that it features real-life cases, quizzes, templates and interactive activities designed to help you turn words and sentences into actions. helps you become Iron Man or Wonder Woman. Okay, maybe that’s a bit too much. But you can try out and see if it has that power too. Andrew has given my listeners free access to explore the platform and see how it works. (At the bottom of this post you’ll find a list of “Sorist” links to the books we mentioned in the podcast episode.)
