Surely the key insights will overcome the typical textbook style format but they might take away the comprehensiveness. I'm a daily user of Blinkist and I love it. There are books like The User's Guide, Lean UX, etc. that you might be interested in.
Ayush Mittal- bro @boombro, Founder RefR ✌
Key insights from 2,000+ bestselling nonfiction books - it's not a replacement for books but it’s hard to find the time to sit down and read a book all the way through. Helps me to divide that idle time that would otherwise just go to Facebook/Twitter.

TechCrunch
It's fair to say the smartphone camera has become the digital tool of most use, rendering the average person's camera roll essentially a memory buffer where carefully composed photographs rub up against snaps of receipts, funny stuff you saw on the street and fancied sharing with friends, and, sometimes, snippets of text you came across in a (paper) book and… See more
