Turn the Page: How to Read Like a Top Leader - Chris Brady

This book is fantastic! There are a lot of great ideas that I'm going to incorporate into my reading immediately (taking organized notes, keeping track of words that I need to look up,etc), some ideas that I may do down the road, several things that I already do (nice to get affirmation) and a few ideas that I can never, ever, ever do (dog earring pages, reading the last paragraph of the book first are the two main ones). 

This book tells you how to read and get more out of your reading. It covers several methods to help your reading become more active, more productive, and more useful to you. This book will help you turn passive reading into active reading.  You will learn techniques and tips on how to get so much more out of your reading.  You don't have to agree and incorporate every idea in the book to enjoy this book.  You can take what works for you and leave the rest.  But I believe that everyone that reads this book WILL learn some useful tips/ideas.

 If you hate reading, read this book. If you love reading, read this book. If you want to get more out of your reading, that's right, read this book.

  1. This sounds really interesting! I have added it to my "want to read" shelf on Goodreads. I do a lot of reading for work and pleasure and I'd like to to be as memorable and useful as possible. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
