Nowadays most books are blogspots that turned popular and were turned into a lenghtier formats, making for the case that the information can easily be summarized into quick paragraphs to make the absorption of the Ideas easier. We can know If this is the case for a particular book by just looking at what the author has to say about It, whether in the form of a Ted-Talk or a Podcast promoting the book, where they usually talk about the book in broader terms explaining every chapter.
