The ‘Digital Knowledge Hub’ – a platform launched by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) to promote the dissemination and production of knowledge – has committed a unique part to book summaries from MBRF’s ‘Book in Minutes’ initiative.
The Foundation had revealed the initiative more than six years ago to offer summaries of best-selling and influential global books in Arabic, which, in turn, serves to stimulate and promote reading among all segments of the community.
The ‘Book in Minutes’ section enables visitors to access more than 200 brief summaries of the most familiar books in a number of fields. Users can read the digital summaries online or download them for free on the Hub’s website – https://www.mbrf.ae/qen/#knowledge-hub – in line with MBRF’s ‘#InvestInKnowledge’ campaign.
The summaries cover numerous disciplines, such as education, health, the environment, future foresight, parenting, leadership and entrepreneurship, private success, the late Sheikh Zayed’s life, arts, artificial intelligence, self-development, happiness, and tolerance, among others.
MBRF’s CEO His Excellency Jamal bin Huwaireb asserted that the ‘Book in Minutes’ initiative has caught the attention of scores of readers over the last few years as it offered an opportunity for them to effortlessly discover the most famous publications in the world. The public has been incredibly responsive to making the summaries available on the ‘Digital Knowledge Hub’.
“The initiative helps attain the Foundation’s strategic targets to promote a culture of analyzing amongst a number of segments of the community,” H.E. bin Huwaireb explained, urging the public to make the best of the time they are spending at home to brush up on the contemporary and best-selling releases online using the ‘Book in Minutes’ summaries.
The summaries target university and graduate students, professionals, and managers at institutions and companies. Among the most remarkable current additions is “Influencers” which talks about constructing your personal brand in the age of social media”. Other significant additions include” How to Help Yourself With Self-Help” which serves as a short guide on how to use self-help books to attain your goals, in addition to ‘Future Proofed’, which introduces new rules of success in work and life for our contemporary world.
