Reading History/(Canadian) by Alberto Man Gouel, translated by Wu Changjie/Commercial Press.

In the name of "the last page", this book only transcribes Flaubert’s sentence: reading is to live. This "last page" is placed in a prominent position at the beginning of the volume, and its significance is self-evident.

Zoologists read the odor of animals in the forest; Parents read the baby’s expression to detect joy or horror or curiosity; Fortune tellers in China read the marks on ancient tortoise shells; Hawaiian fishermen put their hands into the sea to read the current; Farmers read the sky to measure the weather … All these readings share the skills of reading and translating symbols with readers of books. In either case, it is the reader who reads its meaning, and we read it in order to understand or enlighten. We have to read. Reading, almost like breathing, is our basic function.

High-speed reading/[America] written by Paul R. Xi Lie, translated by Jia Yong Xinli/CITIC Publishing House

High-speed Reading is a book that teaches people to read independently by scientific methods. It advocates the image reading method, thinking that reading can easily absorb all the essence of books in an instant, just like taking pictures, which is equivalent to mastering efficient information processing.

This book encourages people to read with a clear purpose by using the analytical and theoretical thinking ability of human left brain and the understanding and creativity ability of human right brain. Reading is divided into five steps: preparation, preview, image browsing, review and activation, so as to break through the powerful subconscious of the brain and awaken memory and understanding. This method is more suitable for reading professional, practical and instrumental books. These skills can not only help you improve your efficiency, but also be an effective tool to improve your personal thinking ability, and will bring amazing changes to your life.
