How to Read a BookHow to Read a Book | Mortimer J. Adler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The art of reading, in short, includes all of the same skills that are involved in the art of unaided discovery: keenness of observation, readily available memory, range of imagination, and, of course, an intellect trained in analysis and reflection. This books brings a 4 step framework for anybody who wants to challenge his/her reading capability. Plus, it details how to approach different types of reading. This work is all about self-learning and the happiness that stems from intelectual life.
