We recommended David SIver's book excerpt Daily Productive Sharing 040 - 20201015 when we first started the DPS newsletter. In today's recommendation, he discusses his book excerpts:

  1. He publishes these book excerpts firstly for himself and secondly to encourage people to read the original books that interest them.
  2. If one only reads his book excerpts without reading the original, one cannot actually fully appreciate the full intent of the original. As these book excerpts are made by him based on his own interest/knowledge base and are not a complete summary of the original.
  3. Although he was worried that this would lead to copyright lawsuits, many authors thanked him for sharing his book excerpts, as many readers read them and then went on to buy the original books to read.
  4. He would use these excerpts in the following ways:
  5. Save the ideas I find most interesting, and worthy of further thought.
  6. Re-read those notes occasionally.
  7. Reflect on one.

Inspired by Siver, we have also posted some book summaries: Book Club, so if you like this kind of sharing, feel free to let us know. We may restart these shares this year.

我们在刚开始做 DPS 电子报的时候,就推荐过 David SIver 的书摘 Daily Productive Sharing 040 - 20201015。今天的推荐里他讨论了自己的书摘:

  1. 他发布这些书摘首先是为了自己,其次是为了鼓励大家去阅读因此感兴趣的原著;
  2. 如果只读他的书摘而不读原著,其实无法完全领略原著的完整意图。因为这些书摘是他根据自己的兴趣/知识储备而做,并不是完整的原著概括;
  3. 尽管他很担心因此导致版权官司,但是很多作者都感谢他的分享,因为不少读者读了他的书摘之后去买原著阅读。

受 Siver 的启发,我们也发布过一些书摘:Book Club,如果你喜欢这样的分享,欢迎告诉我们。我们可能会在今年重启这些分享。
