When reading a book, especially recently, I’ve observed that many books vary greatly on their “Points per Page” or “Points/Page” ratio.

I find this is helpful in communicating how value packed a book is. I’ve noticed a lot of books dropping in their Points/Page ratios because of the increase in ‘storytelling’ and anecdotes. Now this is fine if it adds to the books value, but I rarely find this to be true, and it’s often a low quality page number booster (it’s not truly essential to the idea).

So the ratio of Points/Page is how I share the efficiency of an author at communicating ideas. It’s one of my determining factors in how often I choose to C2C (Cover to Cover) a book. Most new books sadly aren’t worth C2C’ing anymore due to their lackluster depth, and often a lot of quantity and little quality.
