About Zippy Reads
and Ethan


What the heck is this exactly?

Who am I?

Let me be frank: I'm a high school student - with a little curiosity about the inner-workings of the world.


But before that crude introduction turns you on your merry way, let me share some credentials:

  • Over the past 3 years, I've read ~80 books.
  • My writing on Quora has been read over 1,350,000+ times. 
  • This website has been visited by 25,000+ people in 100+ countries (as of August 2020).


Still here? Awesome!

Well, my name's Ethan. And as you've found out I've read a lot of books.


This website is the result of my discovery of 'the Buffett formula.'


Derived from Warren Buffett's approach to investing, the simple (yet hard) aim of the Buffett formula is to fall asleep smarter than when you woke up. In explaining his success, Buffett advises: "Read 500 pages every day, that's how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest." 


Most recently, my interests have been exploring the wild world of game theory and seeking to understand the heated arguments of opposing economic schools of thought.


What is Zippy Reads?

Zippy Reads is my side-project to share the key insights from the books I've read.


Why you might ask? Books are a vital tool for the contemporary individual to excel and stand out, regardless of their profession. And in this modern world, wealth is generated by spreading knowledge, not inhibiting it.


Here you'll find book summaries on genres including:

  • Marketing and advertising
  • Management
  • Economics
  • Business/organisational strategy
