This is a really important essay. We know passive reading doesn’t work when it comes to learning; this piece takes that idea and pushes it to its logical extreme: that books, as a medium, are not built for human learning.

I had to think about A Young Ladies Illustrated Primer from the book Diamond Age when I read this. Great and very true essay!

Just read this essay. Important topic. I know you’ve written extensively on about reading. Have you shared any of the specific methods you implement to aid retention/understanding? Any you’d consider quick wins?

Wow, I realise I haven’t written about this on the blog. (I did explain how I write my summaries here but that doesn’t cover retention). I’ll put that on my todo.
