I made a database with currently more than 190 books for entrepreneurs and it's available for free!

I had some free time yesterday and decided to make a database with books for entrepreneurs.

    Wow, this is really cool, thanks! I found many interesting books in your list :)

      I am really happy to hear that!

      1. 1

        When I googled some of books from your list, I found this website by guy who makes summaries of many books. May be useful too:

          Thanks! I am doing something similar right now! My first summary will be ready within the next days

    Cool, thanks for sharing.

    By the way, is there a way in Airtable to view the books by category? I tried "group by tag" but that groups it by the union of tags, not individual tags.

    1. 1

      What do you mean?

      1. 1

        For example:

        • All books with tag: "Entrepreneurship"
        • All books with tag: "Self Development"
        • etc.
          I can filter one tag at a time, but that seems really manual. Maybe it's just a limitation of Airtable.
        1. 1

          You can use filters bot not necessarily with one at a time. It's my first time using Airtable so I don't know any other way to do it. If someone does please let us know!
