“Be careful about reading health books, you may die of a misprint” – Mark Twain

If you search for health books on Amazon, you will find there are well over a million published books on all facets of health. The amount of reading material is, to say the least, overwhelming. Health Book Summaries is a website for well, health book summaries. Our goal is to bring you summaries of the best books on general health, fitness, nutrition, diets, exercise, mental health, and aging so that you can learn the main ideas.

We encourage you to read each summary with an open mind and a bit of skepticism. Every book has various ideas that may or may not be beneficial to you, and like in the quote above, be careful of ‘misprints’. But if you like what you read, we encourage you to purchase the book for yourself because in the fitness world knowledge is always worth more than advice.

We hope you find our summaries helpful and enjoyable!
