Notable Quotes

So we shall now explain how to read the book. The right way is to put it on your desk in the day, below your pillow at night, devoting yourself to the reading, and solving the exercises till you know it by heart. UNfortuantly, I suspect the reader is looking for advice how not to read, i.e. what to skip, and even better, how to read only some isolated highlights.
