#Bookshrink - Find the essence#

###What is it?### Bookshrink is a tool for picking out the most representative sentences from some amount of text. It works well on research papers, books, and newspaper articles. It isn't all that good at understanding poetry. It will do its best on any type of text you care to run through it.

###Why did you make this?### I'm interested in natural language processing - more than anything, bookshrink scratches my own itch. It's also useful for skimming through large amounts of text to pick up the main ideas.

###How do I use it?###

You can see bookshrink in action at bookshrink.com, where I'm currently hosting the "canonical" instance. If you'd like to explore the code locally, do this:

$ git clone https://github.com/peterldowns/bookshrink.git
$ cd bookshrink
$ make

Then, in your browser, visit http://127.0.0.1:8080/.
