Monday Musings by David Perell

Hey there!

Monday Musings started as a hobby in 2017, and today it’s grown to more than 40,000 people.

I spend hours consuming videos, books, articles, and podcasts every week and I save the best nuggets for Musings. Each edition is designed to save you time. Instead of giving you a link and asking you to consume the entire thing, I strip away the best parts and share them with you. Then, I add context to each story.

You’ll find samples of the kinds of things you’ll learn here and here.

The topics are as broad as what I write about on this website. On any given week, I’ll share a graph that shows how people walk faster in dense cities, a collection of beautiful rainy day photos, pictures of professional cyclists smoking cigarettes during the Tour deFrance, photos of Spanish train stations, or a collection of quotes from the book I’m reading.
