How To Read Analytically

Reading helps us connect existing thought patterns and upgrade our mental models.

To read deeply and critically, we have to engage with the written text differently:

  1. Read slowly, making each page a learning process.
  2. Take notes, preferably using a pen and paper.
  3. Try to explain the main idea in a notebook, asking critical questions and raising doubts.
  4. Teach the content to others, summarizing the book lessons in a presentable format. If we can explain it in simple language, we must have understood it well.
  5. Choose the books carefully.

Active And Passive Reading

Active And Passive Reading

Passive reading is when we read for pleasure and get lost in the book, enjoying the complete experience. This is applied in fictional works. Acquiring knowledge demands a different way to read: Active reading.

Great books require time and attention, needing to be chewed and digested properly for an in-depth understanding.

Acquiring Knowledge Using Analytical Reading

There is an even more active, complex and profound way to read: Analytical Reading.

It involves questioning the text you read, highlighting key points, taking notes, summarizing or curating key ideas, and thinking deeply about what the author is trying to say.

René Descartes

“The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest men of past centuries.”
