What’s this site about?

A carefully curated library of ideas and book summaries

In a world where most people are crazily obsessed with compulsive consumption of irrelevant information. Ivaylo Durmonski focuses on organizing ideas from great books to provoke your thinking, help you progress, and stay sane.


The internet put thousands of years of human knowledge at our fingertips, yet we choose to clutter our days with mindless scrolling. Being overwhelmed with information, fake status symbols, and an uncontrollable desire to consume is no longer an isolated act, it’s the norm of our existence.

The constant pressure from the outside world prevents us from progressing both physically and mentally. Our minds become dominated by thoughts that only force us to spend our time competing with others and our money on buying things we don’t really need.

But there is still hope…


Reading books can help

Many don’t take reading seriously. But good books are the remedy of modern chaos. The hardcover books that are impatiently resting on your shelves hold the power to navigate you in the external world and also tame the chaotic thoughts that are pulling you in different directions.

In a world full of noise, and our online world becoming even noisier, it’s of high importance to expose yourself to more time-tested ideas instead of delude your mind into reading the most trendy topics on the news or social media feeds that only further degenerate your thinking.

Sadly, even if you do want to learn and make progress, the abundance is making it harder to discover the right sources of knowledge, not to mention have time to sit and actually read them.


A well-curated library

Finding time to read books in our complicated and anxious world seems like a titanic feat. And I’m not going to lie to you, it’s no picnic. But we seem to have forgotten that our main goal shouldn’t be to consume all the information on a particular subject. Our aim should be to read the best information based on what we want to learn, so we can think better and achieve our goals.

That’s my intention on this site. I search for the best books, extract the essential ideas, and present them in an easy to understand format. Ultimately, my goal is to create an online library where you can find the key concepts from various topics so you can improve in these specific areas.  By doing so, I hope that more people will transition from cynical passive online consumers to active mindful go-getters with a sense of purpose.

And while I’m regularly adding new articles and summaries, you won’t be bombarded with daily updates. I don’t want to give you infinite choice in terms of what to read. I want to reduce the burden of choice by recommending only the best there is.
