The "original" how to read a book. This book teaches read, write, discuss also known as learn, act, share. Covers mentoring, effective conversations, memorizing, learning a language, recognizing a weak argument or book, and lots more.

It's a free ebook on line. You should read it Stephanie, Heather, Celeste, Rachel, Karen. . . Just saying.

OK. Dated but interesting and good in places. I never finished it as it was a bit long-winded.

A church I was visiting had this on their book table and it caught my attention for two reasons: it was by the great hymn writer Issac Watts and as I teach at a classical school the logic part intrigued me. Watts has much to say to parents and teachers about education. I found his insights very helpful.

A treasure trove of helpful, penetrating, and instructive gems buried in a mountain of words. If you want to find them, you'll need lots of patience and some skill in mining a text. In other words, this book is begging to be rewritten for today's typical reader.
