I originally bought a copy of this book in a used bookstore because the title amused me. When I began reading it, I realized I had made a real find. This book teaches the reader how to think critically about a book, so that a real understanding can be gained. It outlines a series of steps that if practiced will lead to a greater understanding of a book's meaning than the methods usually taught in today's schools. I wish it hadn't taken me as long as it did to find this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to increase their ability to learn and understand any subject at all.

Why?
If you love to read and believe in the potential of books as a meaning to learn, to enjoy and to acheive a higher understanding, this book is made for you.
Written in a very understandable and clear way, it can seem a lot to start (380 pages on reading??), but provides a clear support for all the following reads that you want/have (studies) to do.
I would strongly recommend this book to be teached in high school, as it permitted to understand for the first time, how and why analyzing books is important.
Definitely a life-changing book!

Just buy it, no regrets!
Enjoy reading!

I know that the title of this review may seem over the top but this little work has in fact changed my life. A friend of mine recommended this book during my first year of college. I had been struggling through my literature and history classes, bogged down with reading. In the book Mr. Adler taught me what it means to really read and listen and to extract meaning from a work. I have applied my reading skills not only to books but also my relationships. My GPA rose a full point after reading this and my critical listening skills were greatly enhanced. The book may seem a bit dry at first but it is well worth reading. Every high school student should have a copy.

That book is right here on my shelf beside my desk, and there is a reason for it. Who ever is interested in speedreading or rapid reading shouldn't bother buying it, neither is this a book that could be read fast nor does it teach how to do so. A statement from Francis Bacon, found in this book reads as follows: "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed and some few to be chewed and digested." So if you found a book which is worth to be digested, using speedreading or normal reading skills, "How to Read a Book" is the book to refer to, to get the most out of the few books which are actually worthwhile reading. A must for everyone who claims himself literate.

I work in the computer field and constantly need to keep up with the latest technology by reading technical manuals and periodicals. How to Read a Book has given me a sound approach and blueprint to follow as I read these technical documents.
This book is truly a MUST have for everyone of all disciplines.

From the back cover--

Originally published in 1940, has become a rare phenomenon, a living classic. It is the best and most successful guide to reading comprehension for the general reader. And now it has been completely rewritten and updated.

You are told about the various levels of reading and how to achieve them--from elementary reading, through systematic skimming and inspectional reading, to speed reading. You learn how to pigeonhole a book, X-ray it, extract the author's message, criticize. You are taught the different reading techniques for reading practical books, imaginative literature, plays, poetry, history, science and mathmatics, philosophy and social science.

Finally, the authors offer a recommended reading list and supplu reading tests whereby you can measure your own progress in reading skills, comprehension and speed.

Frankly, though I have been a book reader for many years, I can say that I have always been reading the "wrong kinds" of books until I read this book. It has helped me to widen my scope in readings as well as expanding my mind! It is a must have and more important a must read book. Highly Recommended. It will forever change the way you read and your reading life will never be the same again.

If you want to learn how to read well, this is a good start. You might think it's absurd for a literate person not to be able to read well, but this book is filled with insights that, although they are all common sense, they are the type of common sense we tend to overlook. If you think many books are too difficult for you, this book will explain that that is exactly why you must read it. If you want to learn how to form your own opinions on important works of literature in any field, this book teaches you the art of critique. However, I applaud this book not only because it is good instruction for those who want to become better readers. It also explains *why* we must become better readers. The person who wants to read for "understanding," and not just "knowledge" or "enjoyment," will appreciate this book.

I read about it in Jed Mckennas book and decided to buy it. It was worth every penny, learned lots!

I purchased this book many years ago. My wife thought I was crazy to buy a "How to" book on reading. This book truly changed the way I read (and think). I can no longer sit down with a serious book without having a pen in hand to write down comments and questions as I go.
This book should be mandatory reading for all high school students and for all education professionals.
