The Think-Grow Knowledge Modules (TKGM)

The simpler, and wiser, way to approach compressed knowledge:

Mini-libraries of super-summaries on essential topics.

The Think-Grow Knowledge modules (TGKMs) are an attempt to solve a very important learning problem. They are mini-libraries of book summaries, each giving a wide (wise) enough view of a specific field.

The topics have been selected carefully to give a good and wide understanding of a specific area, so that the reader can become aware of the key concepts and can later choose to expand their knowledge of the field. The summaries have been specifically designed with that goal in mind.

The modules include a recommended reading list, book summaries , quizzes , mind maps , and a general knowledge sharing platform, all designed to increase interactivity and improve learning outcomes.

Below are links to the Apple Appstore and Google Play pages of the different apps in the Think-Grow Knowledge Modules collection.

More Details and Some Considerations / Caveats

We live in a ‘fast’ world, and many things have been replaced by their shortcuts. It is quite important to keep this idea in mind, and remember that these shortcuts frequently do more harm than good. ‘Book summaries’ are an example of this.

Learning through book summaries is not always a good thing, and not all book summaries are created equal. The Think-Grow Knowledge modules were created with these considerations in mind. They are designed to give a broad understanding of key ideas, and deliver enough practical knowledge and memorable stories and frameworks.
