Books That Inspire 2001

How to Read a Book: The Art of Getting a Liberal Education
Mortimer Adler

I am reluctant to call this an inspirational book. It is a useful book. It helped me develop better reading and listening skills. My reason for wanting it included in this group is that it is a really good guide to understanding critical reading. I believe reading is the fundamental learning skill and we must work hard to develop and maintain that skill. This book was (and continues as) an excellent guide for me. It is a book that I recommend to our students and graduates.
