About the Show

Author Hour features enlightening conversations about books with the authors that wrote them.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could easily get the best ideas from new books? That’s what Author Hour is all about. Each week, we give you the best ideas and stories from a new book, through an in-depth conversation with the author.

We cover all types of non-fiction: business, fitness, investing, self-help, and more. Listeners will get an entertaining and useful summary of each book, in a fraction of the time. A must listen for avid readers and aspiring authors.
