Becoming a Demanding Reader

Reading is all about asking the right questions in the right order and seeking answers.

There are 4 main questions you need to ask of every book:

  1. What is this book about?
  2. What is being said in detail, and how?
  3. Is this book true in whole or in part?
  4. What of it?
