Writing a Study Guide

Three Part PDP

Book: A History of Money and Banking in the United States by Murray N. Rothbard (HMB)

What I’m doing: Writing a Study Guide over HMB

Month One:

  • Reading the entirety of HMB
  • Taking detailed but concise notes while I read that include:
    • Main points of each part of the book
    • Main points of each subsection of the book
    • Important people (and relevant information on them)
    • Important events and the dates of these events

Month Two:

  • Compile all of the notes I took into a Google Doc
  • Quick re-read to fill gaps in notes

Month Three:

  • Take Google Doc and turn into study guide/cliffsnotes. (rough draft)
  • Write review on HMB and publish here as well as Amazon.

What I’m aiming to learn:

  • How to take detailed, concise and accurate notes over a book while still comprehending the overall message.
  • Organizing my thoughts into a cohesive whole.
  • Improving my technical writing abilities.
  • About the history of money and banking in the United States.
