Disclaimer: I was sent a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
“Read to Succeed” is an engaging conversation with the author. While I was reading it, it didn’t really feel like a book. I truly felt like I was listening to Skrabut describing his passion for reading. The book is well laid out and easy to get into. I would even call it a page turner.
Skrabut starts by explaining the different ways reading is important and how it can improve someone’s life in various ways. Several chapters go into explaining the reading lives of various famous readers from Ben Franklin to Bill Gates. The book is peppered with fun quotes from great readers of the past.
The meatier chapters go into how you can improve your own reading life. It touches how and where you can get your hands on books, the various forms books can come in, and how to most efficiently consume your books.
This is an easy book to dip into. Each chapter is essentially self contained and equally entertaining and informative on its own. It is, in many ways, the perfect coffee table book. Overall I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
