Reviews - What do customers think about How to Read Slowly?

Check it out, please!  Aug 26, 2009
I bought this little book a few years back after having read it in the library. Well much to my shock and awe, it was even better the second time around. I honestly think you will enjoy the read. Writing this review makes me want to read it again.

More specific the book covers many different topics. Such as:
Chp 1 - Introduction to reading.
Chp 2 - Reading NONfiction.
Chp 3 - Reading poetry.
Chp 4 - Reading fiction.
Chp 5 - The larger context.
Chp 6 - A time to read.
Appendix - Reading with a plan.

Probably the most helpful sections are in the back of the book. Chp 5 and the appendix are the most helpful sections in the whole book. (Any reading plan will do but this one is well laid out.)

Essential Reading!  May 27, 2009
In the vein of Mortimer Adler's How to Read a Book (A Touchstone book), world view expert and professor of English and literature, James Sire has written an engaging and practical book on reading comprehension. The title is somewhat of a misnomer since the book has nothing to do with the actual speed of reading but rather the process of comprehending what we read. He covers the genres of non-fiction, poetry, and fiction with especially helpful advice on how to read them. The last chapters are dedicated to the different contexts of reading and when and what to read. This short book takes a particular approach to reading in that it teaches the reader to determine the world view of the author. The author approaches this from a particularly Christian point-of-view, but maintains that wide reading is necessary and profitable to developing a world view to which we are committed. With this approach in mind, the book is ideally a companion to the author's world view catalog, The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog, and serves as a useful supplement to Adler. The book is essential for all bibliophiles but especially the Christian reader.
Good book, but much of the material is available in other books  Jul 7, 2005
James Sire is a great Christian author who explains worldviews better than most (if not all). This book discussed different types of literature, and how to read them. It also discussed why we as Christians should read these things. He provides a good argument, but perhaps a better book on this subject is J.P. Moreland's Love the Lord With Your Mind.
