“Your summaries are always ‘on point’, and save me a great deal of time, effort, and money in selecting business literature…”

“Through the summaries I get the most important points…”

Dear Reader,

Are you one of those busy people who intend to read, but don’t seem to have the time to read all the books you need to get ahead and improve yourself and your business?

The answer is most likely “yes”, at least for most of us.

It seems that all the time in the world is still not enough to get the information you need in your head to grow your business, improve your communication, or acquire the leadership skills you need to move forward.

The business world is advancing at a very rapid pace and only way to connect with it is the books. With the vast offering of business books and materials it is often challenging to know where to invest your limited reading time. Not having enough time to read the right books forgoes the opportunity to get ahead and to apply these shared knowledge to your business or life.

In this day and age, it is hard to find any extra time.

Many entrepreneurs and business executives barely have enough time to complete their work, let alone sit down, find the right books, and read several of them!

Frumi Rachel Barr, MBA PhD
Author, CEO, CFO

Hi, I am Frumi Rachel Barr, business advisor and executive coach.

As a CEO, I’m no stranger to acknowledging every detail that makes a company function.

If you want to really move forward in your job or take your business to the next level, the knowledge in these business books becomes essential.

What kind of knowledge am I talking about?

What I mean is books in the area of:

  • Leadership skills
  • Performance
  • Communication
  • Motivation
  • Marketing
  • General business strategy

“100 Must Read Business Book Summaries”

100 Must Reads is a list of 100 best business books ever written with a link to a summary of 8 to 10 pages for each as well as the author’s big thought and a recommendation from me as to what value we got from reading the book & how it will impact your business, efficiency, income, and life.

Gaining the kind of knowledge that’s included in these books could lead to being more efficient, knowing what to do to get ahead, more money in your bank account, and even more time on your hands.

I’ve made it easy for everyone to get this information by providing this list with reviews, author’s big thought and summaries in a convenient digital format.

“…capture the essence of the point the author is making”

“Frumi’s book summaries are a rich resource for me and my coaching clients. They are succinct and yet capture the essence of the point the author is making without having to plow through the entire text. Several of my clients who have taken advantage of these summaries have subsequently bought the book as they wanted the full text and content for their leadership libraries as a reference.”

“I suspect many of us who have been students of leadership and organizational dynamics maintain our own list of “must haves” on various topics; it would be powerful to be able to draw on this type of resource on line as well.”

-Sheree Butterfield, CPC, Executive Coach

“Through her summaries I get the most important points.”

“Like everyone in business today, I’m a busy person and invariably important things get lost or pushed aside. On of those things is readings. So many books; so little time. Enter Frumi with her excellent summary of the most important books for businesses today. Through her summaries I get the most important points. If the book summary interests me, I read the book, if not, I don’t spend precious time on a book that might not be of direct value to me. This is an amazing service that Frumi offers.”

-Ariane David, PhD, Managing Partner | The Veritas Group

It’s all there, ready and waiting.”

“Thank you Frumi!”

-Ann Crowell, President, Division of Crowell & Associates

How Much Could You Spend To Get
Specific Business Knowledge Like This?

You could spend hours researching various business books and going through reviews. You could spend even more time testing each theory personally — and still not see any improvement in your life or business.

You could hire a business coach and spend hundreds of dollars each month.

You can buy more books — only to find out they don’t apply to your business or career….and spend your valuable time reading the entire books.

You could deal with all of these frustrations like many people do… or you can join 100 Must Reads instead!

You don’t have to research the best books on business… because I have done the research for you.

You don’t have to hire a professional consultant… because I have spent the time and expense to make sure 100 Must Reads contains books that teach you what a professional would.

How Much Time and Money You Could Save While Getting the Same Benefits of Learning the Most Important Information in These 100+ Books…


So, for example, let’s say the average reading time for these books is 6 hours, it takes over 600 hours to finish reading 100 business books.

If your hourly rate is $100, then reading 100 books is a $60,000 investment (and of course the cost of the books).

Reading a 100mustreads summary takes about 20 minutes, reading 100 summaries takes about 33 hours. So, that means one could save 567 hours while getting the same, most important information in these books. That’s 23 days, or if you sleep 6 hours a day, saving 567 hours is like having extra 31 days.

And also, you could save $56,700 (in theory) by not spending 600 hours on reading 100 books.

Are these time & money saving benefits compelling enough? Should we even go further by stating what you could do with these hours you could save?

Everything you desire, like spending time with family instead of allocating extra 2 hours a day for your already busy schedule. Or perhaps simply more time for execution, which would bring more revenues for your business.

You don’t have to worry about spending your next car payment for financial and life improvement… because I made 100 Must Reads affordable for everyone.

In fact, for a limited time, you can pay what you want to join 100 Must Reads and get an Immediate Access to 100+ Business Book Summaries.

“Pay What You Want” Philosophy

100 Must Reads store is built on a “pay what you want” philosophy.

If you are a broke student, pay what you can. If you can afford it, think about supporting my mission.

No matter what you decide to pay, it’s a tiny investment in your business skills that could literally put hundreds of thousands of dollars in your account and leave you more relaxed and with more time.

In fact, I believe in 100 Must Reads so much that I’m willing to take all of the risk off of your shoulders and put it squarely on mine. Here’s what I mean…

Even though you pay what you want, I’m willing to give you 100% of your money back if you are not satisfied and feel that you are not getting the information you wanted from the summaries.

What is the catch?

“Frumi, Why Would You Offer Something Like This?”

You may be wondering why I would be willing to offer the 100 Must Reads compilation for a fraction of what I could charge. The reason is simple.

My mission is to provide business education to the world at the most reasonable cost and most efficient way possible.

Today, even the best business schools do not teach what people need to know about business in the real world. Whether it’s sales, management, marketing, leadership, or basic communication skills, there are many great books out there that can provide a solid education in business. This can be done for pennies rather than the traditional method involving years of schooling and student debt.

I intend to make this knowledge accessible to anyone who has the curiosity and drive to discover new concepts, new ideas, and efficient ways of doing things that can lead to more productive businesses and higher incomes.

I just ask that you’ll actually take a look at it if I give you this reviewer access.

If you like it, all you need is to post a review at Facebook and tweet about it. Sounds fair? It’s really the only reason I can afford to give this access away.

It’s first-come, first-served. So grab yours now.

Fair enough?

It is my passion for continuous learning and the desire to stay connected to the people I meet.

I absolutely hate to see other people making the same mistakes that many of my CEO coaching clients used to make… when it’s so easy to correct them.

Let’s face it: I know I can’t change the world… but if I can help a few people change their lives for the better by providing a comprehensive set of resources, then I will have made a positive difference.

That’s why I decided to create 100 Must Reads that will give many entrepreneurs and business executives a push in the right direction — so they can reach new levels of success time after time — and do it in record time.

On a “pay what you want” philosophy — you will get a comprehensive list of over 100 resources, including the author’s “big thought”, my recommendations, and a link to the summary I have created.

Wouldn’t that be great?

Isn’t your increased wealth and personal happiness worth it?

You do not have to wonder what to read anymore.

Simply reading through this list and using specific resources to grow your business will give you a competitive edge that you won’t find anywhere else.

This comprehensive list will start to work immediately as you start to get information and come up with ideas. Before you know it, your confidence and your income will grow in leaps and bounds!

Get access to this amazing resource today and you’ll be able to say “YES” to a healthy, happy and fulfilled life once again.

And before I forget… I also wanted to remind you that this is a 100% risk free offer.

Simply grab your own access to”100 Must Reads”… take up to two full months to review the information contained in the website. If you aren’t 100% satisfied, simply email me for a fast and hassle-free refund. You have nothing to lose except the time you are currently wasting during the day.

Want in? Then get your reviewer access right away. You will have access to all 100 best business book reviews and summaries and pay only what you want.

Here’s What Some of Readers
Have Said About Me and 100 Must Reads!

For those of us who are busy CEOs, Frumi’s Book Notes are the perfect solution for how to get all of the value of the top business books in a condensed version. Saves time. Makes me smarter. It doesn’t get better than that! Thank you Frumi.

-Devon Blaine, President & CEO

Frumi’s Book Notes have saved me a fortune over the years!!! She captures the author’s big idea and then adds her keen insight.

Now I know exactly which books to buy – the latest and greatest as well as the tried and true! Is it any wonder CEO’s hire her?

Frumi – you are one of kind and thank you for being who you are!

-Susan Bock, Expert in issues unique to Women Business Owners

With the vast offering of business books and materials it is often challenging to know where to invest your limited reading time. Frumi’s insights into what’s important to the business Owner or CEO and her concise assessment of the key messages a book provides significantly helps business book readers to invest in the best and most useful materials to help achieve their goals. Her experience and background give her unique perspective on the key issues around managing a successful business.

-Steve Gross, Plethora Businesses

Frumi’s book notes are a great timesaver. I get the essence of the book in a condensed form – with Frumi’s interpretations and wonderful insights. Also, the convenience of being able to print out the few pages of the book notes and take them with you when you are on the go. It makes it easy to carry around “several books” and refer to them at your convenience.

-Brad Leggett, The Leggett Group

As a busy transactional attorney, I am reading all of the time, but not necessarily those books which can help me improve on the business management and marketing skills I need to run my own firm effectively. There are a lot of “helpful” business books out there competing for attention, and thanks to Frumi Barr, who unselfishly provides independent, thoughtful and comprehensive reviews of the best of this category on her website, 100MustReads.com, I can save valuable time and energy while staying “au courant” as to what is generally available, and then pick only those whole books which are tailored to my specific needs for more concentrated efforts. Thank you Frumi for your intelligent yet down-to-earth approach which helps me greatly with time management and efficiency in my quest for professional growth.

-Ken August, President, August Law Group, P.C.

The book summaries capture the essence of each publication in such a succinct, concise manner, while effectively conveying the author’s main points. The book summaries are just one of the many ways Frumi adds value as a CEO Confidante. Since meeting Frumi, she has given me priceless nuggets of wisdom which has allowed me to grow both personally and professionally.

-Manna Kadar, Island Tan

Thank you, you are a gem, and for many, many reasons. This ‘thank you’ is for allowing me access to your book summaries…I just purchased ‘Metaphorically Selling’ after reading your exceptional summary. Your summaries are always ‘on point’, and save me a great deal of time, effort, and money in selecting business literature pertinent to my business.
