Hey I’m Jes

I’m an Entrepreneur and avid book reader. 

I discovered the power of books properly in my first year of my university degree studying business at Oxford Brookes University. It didn’t take long  before I found myself reading everything I could get my hands on. The more I read the more I realised how much I didn’t know.

This supercharged my curiosity and after four years of reading and taking notes I want to share what I’ve learnt.  

So Welcome to WiseWords! A pet project of ours where we share and explore the best ideas and concepts from what we have read. 

This site hosts all of my book summaries across many non-fiction genres. Such as psychology, behavioural economics, entrepreneurship, marketing, philosophy, habits, health, finance, and more.

As this is more of a hobby we aim to produce a book summary a week but don’t hold ourselves to this all the time. If you have any suggestions feel free to drop us an email – info@wisewords.blog

Hey I’m Tristan

Similar to Jes, I came across the world of books not too long ago when I was training to be a professional actor. Prior to that, I used to hate them, books to me were a waste of time, but then again I guess that’s what happens when you’re forced to read in regard to school rather than following any sense of curiosity.

Now, I describe myself as an avid reader with a voracious appetite for knowledge. Once you realise the benefits of reading, there’s no turning back.¬†

Over the past 4 years, I have read and made notes on numerous books ranging on a whole range of subjects, from psychology and neuroscience to law, fitness philosophy and more.

I am currently studying psychology and cognitive neuroscience at Goldsmiths University while also pursuing an acting career. Being imbedded in the world of human behaviour, I not only find how the mind works fascinating but also how one can improve it, meaning I take quite a pragmatic view to the books I read, trying to understand how to put the theory to practice.

Wise Words allows Jes and myself to really internalise the information from the books we read and communicate it in a way that makes it simple to understand as well as easy to implement to one’s own life.
