Reading A Book The 80/20 Rule Way

There are many applications of the 80/20 rule. When it comes to reading a book it says: 20% of the pages contain 80% of the content. This has tremendous bearing on your studying technique. First read the summary of the book, then the table of content and the introduction. Then flip through the book, look at illustrations, graphs and pictures. After that you will most likely be able to create a one pager summary of the book. Then, if you want, you can read any particularly interesting chapters.
