Excerpt

The best way to read faster is to read more.

A good book, like good sex or a date, is something you don’t want to end.

And as the famous physicist Richard Feynman said, “you are the easiest person to fool”.

Reading fast is not thinking.

Reading fast gives you two things that should never mix: surface knowledge and overconfidence.

If you speed-read, you’re incurring invisible costs that show up later in your lack of real understanding.

The secret to reading better is reading lots of good books slowly. This enables you to build knowledge.

If you want to be different, invest the time you have in reading good books correctly.
