About Us

Welcome to ShortSummaryBook.com, your go-to destination for concise and insightful book summaries.


Founded by two brothers, Troy and Terrence Timmons, we’ve always been frustrated by the book summaries available online. The truth is, not everyone has the luxury of time to sift through Google searches, consult ChatGPT, or struggle to find the core information of a book on various websites. That’s why we created ShortSummaryBook.com. Our goal is to ensure that anyone, regardless of their time constraints, can grasp the essence of a book in just minutes. No fluff, no content designed to deceive search engines—just straight to the point.

With a skill set that blends property management law and frontend website development, I’m well-suited for this book summary website. My strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills further add to my versatility. I have four years of hands-on experience in property management and another five in website development. As a book enthusiast, I am a big fan of Gabrielle Zevin’s “Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow.” When I’m not working or reading, I stay active by working out, playing soccer, and surfing. To relax, I enjoy watching sports and playing fantasy football.

As a UCSB alumnus with a major in Math and a minor in Statistics, my expertise in data analysis complements my deep interest in literature, particularly the “Stormlight Archive” series by Brandon Sanderson. My role involves ensuring that our summaries are not only accurate but also provide a unique perspective on each book. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, and hiking.
