Love to read but feeling time poor? Joosr has the answer. The new app is a library of non-fiction book summaries that get to the heart of what really matters to people today. Each summary is condensed into a 20-minute format to comprise only the most important and necessary information, accessible via your smartphone or tablet for on-the-move reading.

The library has the very best on offer from business and management to parenting and relationships, right through to self-help. 20-minutes is the perfect snap shot of time to indulge in more learning, whether it’s during your coffee break or on your daily commute.

Joosr was created by a working mother with a career in publishing and a businessman with a demanding job and long daily commute. Both found that the daily pressures of their busy lives made ongoing learning and reading completely impractical … And so Joosr was born.

You can start a 15 day free trial here or download the app on your phone. New titles include Thrive by Arianna Huffington and Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso.
