What this is

We love reading and applying what we learn by acting and reflecting on it.

Every book listed here has a summary and further resources that you can copy to your own notion with one click.

Find the best books for bootstrappers in our bookshelf, inspired by Arvid Kahl's bookshelf that has helped us when we started out.

We will be adding more as we go along.
