Love Your Work, Episode 12 – Stop Reading Books Straight Through. Start Reading in “Layers.”

February 18 2016 – 06:00am

Have you ever been really excited about a book you were reading, only to realize – as you tried to describe it to someone – that you had NO IDEA what it was actually about? This happened to me all of the time, until I realized I was reading the wrong way.

This is a mini-episode in which I introduce the “layered” reading approach that changed the way I read books. Now I read more books than ever, while retaining more of what I read. This is a reading of my Observer article Reading for Scatterbrained People With Neither Patience Nor Respect for Authority.
