"A classic is something everybody wants to have read, but no one wants to read."

 

 

Twain was figuratively right.  Who does want to read these big books, famous as they are?  Most everybody.  Who has the time?  Not many!  Summaries abound on the internet, so maybe we don't have to actually read them.  Have you read these summaries?  Most are awful.  Most leave you grasping to understand what's taken place.  And many are so long they defeat the purpose of the word "Summary".  Is there another way?  A path not only less traveled, but also a better path?

The Little Logic Book!

Quick!  Concise!  Logical!  "A Lay of the Land!"!   The goal:  An incredible understanding of the book in 30 minutes.  How?  By creating a logical flow to a story with enough detail a reader would:

- be able to put three of the books in their back pocket. 

- get through the book in 20-30 minutes.  Tops.

- have a great grasp of the story.

- want to run to the store and buy the actual book.

 

But is this enough?  Is time the only barrier to not reading?  I don't think so.  I think merely reading books is hard for many people.  It is me.  By this, I mean staring at a page of letters is not easy to do.  What if we literally changed the meaning of reading?  What if we not only broke the material into manageable bits, but organized them - visually?  You'll see ...

 

And if it's a student reading, there must be periodic stops along the way to ensure what's been read has been read.  The operational format of this was a word-search that has a solution - the unchecked letters spell out a message.

A NEXT STEP

But this is only a start ... a small start.  We've understood a book.  Fine.  How does it relate to another book?  Another situation?  A current event?  How can we leverage one element to better understand another?

 

And that's just a start!
