How to Read a Book

Mortimer J. Adler

Overview

Mortimer J. Adler was a popular American philosopher, author and educator, who worked at various prestigious universities, as well as educational institutions like the Encyclopædia Britannica and his own Institute for Philosophical Research. When he died in 2001 (aged exactly 98 and a half years old), he left behind a massive body of work in service of making philosophy more accessible to the masses.

One of his most popular pieces is How To Read A Book which teaches you how to get the most out of reading non-fiction. Whether for school, work, or just to get smarter, it dissects reading into its various stages and shows you how to think about information critically.
