Hey there, Dean here. I run SEO and content at AppSumo.

Here, I write articles and share book notes on productivity, leadership, money, psychology, and more.

Book Notes

I take notes while I read. These book notes start with a short summary and my two cents, then follow by key lessons and highlights.

This page will be constantly updated as I read more, so bookmark it if you want to check back in a few months. Or you can signup to my newsletter to receive the latest book notes in your inbox.
