Highlighting paragraphs

You know a writer has done a good job when you can’t stop highlighting sentences.
It’s perfect. The book is a gift. A gift from the author to you. She has reviewed the content as much times as needed, to reach its essence. To give you the concept in its pure state. And each sentence you read is worth to highlight and take notes.
She could’ve done it longer, but that’s not the point. Leaving some content out is.
When they hesitate whether they should include something or not, they ask themselves… Does it match with the main concept I want to transmit? If the answer is No, they leave it out.
That’s what good writers do.
Here I show you 3 books from the Book Review section that made me highlight every sentece:
