6a) Recommended Reading: Ethos “Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.� 10 Francis Bacon

6b) Recommended Reading: Approach “Surviving and thriving as a professional today demands two new approaches to the written word. First, it requires a new approach to orchestrating information, by skilfully choosing what to read and what to ignore. Second, it requires a new approach to integrating information, by reading faster and with greater comprehension.� Jimmy Calano 11
