How we do it: We have leveraged EBSCO Publishing’s decades of online information expertise to develop a consistent methodology that produces high quality book summaries.
- Our Editorial team selects the best business books from the thousands that are published each year. Each prospective title is evaluated by the team, and those that meet our standards for quality and relevancy are submitted for permissions and production.
- Our Rights & Permissions team works with our publishing partners to secure permission to generate the summary… a step many other summarizers overlook.
- Our Expert Summarizers then create the summary according to our specifications. Every summary provides the key concepts from the author, an overview of the book’s contents, and details on the book’s layout and features. BBS summaries are not simply extracts of the book text, but a careful summary of the book main points. Our summarizers are trained to create effective summaries, not simple abstracts or excerpts from the text.
- Our Production Team then creates the PDF, text, MP3, and PDA-compatible (Blackberry, iPhone, Droid, smart phone, etc.) versions of the summary, for maximum accessibility.
- Our summaries are then offered to our readers via the BBS Interface, which leverages the power of the award-winning EBSCOhost search platform to provide intuitive and versatile use of the summaries.
The result: Dependable, effective, and efficient summaries of the best business books, for your professional development. All available in a variety of subscription options, designed to fit your needs.
