A blog to write about great books (and coffee). What else?

I am a 30-something Ph.D and I read a lot. GreatBooks&Coffee is my books blog. FREE book reviews and value-packed book summaries, what are you waiting for? CLICK IN!

I am a thirty-something Ph.D and GreatBooks&Coffee. is my literary blog. Without fuss.

I work in the field of international relations and I read a lot of politics, economics and society books. I was also an entrepreneur, so I also read a lot of business and self-development books too.

I noticed that my friends don’t have enough time to read, even less process and analyse what they read. Often, they don’t even know what to read next!

I started writing my own reviews of books as a means to have discussions with them whilst summing-up some arguments and analyses for them. And they asked for more! So, I continued.

I noticed something else: we all try to look (or feel) smarter, but this is no easy thing. Where do I start? How do I do? Who should I talk to? How long is that going to take? How expensive is that going to be?

But here is the thing: books are a great way to boost yourself because they give you a very easy (and cheap) access to the ideas and arguments of the best thought leaders.

There are two problems here: choice and time!

First, there are so many books on the market that finding the right one may become a daunting task.

Second, even if you found the book of your dreams, in reality most people never finish the (non-fiction) books they buy.

Hence, making the most of great books written by the best leaders in their field is not always as easy as it seems. The good news is, I got you covered.
