    Boring!!! Too "Wordy". Strategies shared may be helpful to the reader, but too much detail is added.

    This book is the best of it's kind I have ever encountered. It is above all else, an easy course in logical and critical thinking. If I may be so bold, I would name "How To Read A Book" the greatest self-help book of the 20th century.
