    This classic by Adler and Van Doren continues to remain relevant and to inform us how to read more effectively and fruitfully. Well worth the money and the time.

    I had heard of this book when I was young, and remember thinking it was a silly idea, reading a book on how to read a book. More recently, I stumbled upon it, half by accident, half by simple curiosity, and was intrigued by the description and reviews. I eventually decided to purchase it. My sole regret is not having purchased it sooner.

    The author divides reading into four levels, and basically teaches the reader how to X-ray a book. Excellently written, I consider this book to be *invaluable* for working people and students alike.

    I read a chapter in college a professor recommended back in 1983. It helped me grasp the most diffcult of text books in any subject--even the ones I didn't enjoy. Subjects and authors came alive and helped me find shape in the void.

    If anyone here really wants to be an addicted reader and that loves reading to elevate his mind from understanding less to understanding more by merely using the power of your minds operation, then this book is for you. I promise, that you will be able to take on any readable matter personally without any external help after reading this book thoroughly. You will learn so much from this book.
