Citia makes books easier to read — and more delightful.
We extract a book’s best ideas, serve up each on its own digital card, and let you read in any order you like. These “idea cards” live in a 3D interface that lets you discover and explore new concepts. Share each one with anyone you like, any way you like.
Citia apps are built for high-velocity reading and high-quality comprehension — they’re tuned for modern media consumers. If your reading habits move faster than your books, you’ll love Citia.
This free app offers a 13-card preview collection. Upgrade to the full edition for the entire book redone Citia-style.
*Optimized for iPad 2 and later*
ABOUT “THE 5 LEVELS OF LEADERSHIP”:
True leaders don’t follow a career path: they travel up “The 5 Levels of Leadership.” Originally published by Center Street (Hachette), this book shows how to make that trip. Learn how to invest in people, how to inspire them, and how to influence them.
“John Maxwell’s books have been required reading for my leadership team for years. I can’t think of anyone better at distilling decades of leadership experience into practical, approachable principles that anyone can apply.”
—Dave Ramsey, best-selling author of “The Total Money Makeover”
“John has taught “The 5 Levels of Leadership” to our leaders at Delta with great results. The insight and valuable principles he delivers has helped all of us raise our effectiveness and improve our performance. John is a dynamic communicator with a heart for leadership that all can learn from.”
—Ed Bastian, President, Delta Air Lines
“John has been a mentor and teacher for me for many years and what I love most about him is that he has pushed and helped me personally go through the 5 Levels of Leadership!”
—Kevin Turner, COO, Microsoft
PRAISE FOR CITIA:
“Digitization has changed the book, and now Citia is providing a new and logical way to read it. I can’t wait to dive into the stacks.”
—Steven Heller, professor at New York’s School of Visual Arts, book author, and columnist for the New York Review of Books.

Citia makes important ideas travel farther, faster. We reorganize books onto virtual index cards. Each “idea card” lives in a 3D interface that lets readers explore new concepts.
Citia’s cards free ebooks from paginated, linear constraints. Designed for the touchscreen, the app offers intuitive navigation and cards that can be emailed, tweeted, or posted to Facebook.
Citia has partnerships with major publishers including Penguin, HarperCollins, Hachette, O’Reilly, and Perseus.
“I started the company because our media haven’t evolved as quickly as our hardware — or our habits,” says Citia founder and CEO Linda Holliday. “Today’s ebooks are simply digitized versions of what’s been around since Gutenberg. This is the moment when reading can be truly reinvented for new devices — made smarter, more visual, more social, and more fun.”
