HOW TO READ A BOOK by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

It shows concretely how the serious work of proper reading may be accomplished and how much it may yield in the way of instruction and delight. (New Yorker)

In this newly revised edition of the best and most successful guide to reading comprehension for the general reader, you will learn various techniques for improving and measuring your progress in reading skill, comprehension, and speed.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audios narrator, Edward Holland. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book youve come.
