I ran across a new (to me) service the other day called Soundview Executive Book Summaries. Apparently, they summarize about 13 of the most popular business books each month, and you can get the summaries in audio (for your iPod or whatever you have) or in print/electronic written form. Seems like a pretty good service for busy people, especially those who need conversation starters at business functions or who want to appear intelligent and well-read at meetings. Very quick way to get through a lot of books fast!
