St. Thomas Aquinas famously warned “Beware the man of one book”. While his words are typically quoted today as a criticism of the person whose mental horizons are limited to one book. In context, however, he meant that a person who has thoroughly mastered one good book can be quite formidable as an intellectual opponent or adversary.
It is clear that the Angelic Doctor was not advocating that we limit ourselves to reading just one book in our lives. What he was seeking to underscore is the importance of smart or intelligent reading. While we should be encouraged to read as much as possible, in the end, it matters little how many books we read, but how much we are able to retain and glean from our reading them.
What if there was a way to dramatically increase not only how many books we read, but also our ability to absorb and remember what we read? Well, I have good news for you! There is a way!
