How To Read A Book by Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren: Quote

The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.

from page 49 regarding "How to Make a Book Your Own"

Do you know anyone like this? Maybe I should ask, how many people do you know that cannot express what they really think? If you are unfamiliar or only vaguely know of Jim Rohn, How To Read A Book is one of the books he continually recommended for a large part of his public speaking career.

We are a not-for-profit educational organization, founded by Mortimer Adler and we have recently made an exciting discovery--three years after writing the wonderfully expanded third edition of How to Read a Book, Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren made a series of thirteen 14-minute videos, lively discussing the art of reading. The videos were produced by Encyclopaedia Britannica. For reasons unknown, sometime after their original publication, these videos were lost.

Three hours with Mortimer Adler on one DVD. A must for libraries and classroom teaching the art of reading.

I cannot over exaggerate how instructive these programs are--we are so sure that you will agree, if you are not completely satisfied, we will refund your donation.
