Cheat Sheets for Life book

Learn life-changing insights from hundreds of bestsellers – by reading just one book.

As the busy CEO of a technology firm, Ayesha hated her lengthy commutes – until she turned them into her mobile library. Soon, she was completing over 70 audiobooks each year on happiness, health, productivity, and success – all while stuck in traffic. She began capturing and categorising the most valuable and validated research from her readings for rapid reference. In doing so, she realised that it was possible to derive a handbook for life based on the expertise from hundreds of books. 

The output is Cheat Sheets for Life – a concise handbook of science-backed advice on 17 dimensions of life, from health to money to leadership to relationships.

Cheat Sheets for Life aims to be the last book you’ll ever need to improve your life. Using time-tested research, it strives to give even the busiest individual a foolproof guide to leading an optimised life.
