About Mike’s Booktrep

Booktrep was born from a belief that books change lives and that entrepreneurship is one of the most exciting, but difficult paths a person can travel.

Along my own entrepreneurial journey, I’ve made lots of mistakes. But the one thing I’ve never stopped doing is learning — listening to different opinions, striving to get a product or service “just right,” and iterating with every single failure.

But while failure is a great way to learn — and often necessary — books offer something that failure can’t.


The ability to learn about a topic before ever even engaging with it. In the words of Samuel Levenson,

“You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.”

In other words, Booktrep is here to help you minimize your failures and maximize your learning. Because no entrepreneurial hero ever rose to greatness without standing on the shoulders of giants.

And neither will you or I.

As always, stay original,
