How to Speak How to Listen


Forty years after finishing his classic book How to Read a Book, Adler wrote this followup book about two other aspects of communication that are often overlooked in our school systems. While our schools devote time to reading per se, the techniques of reading a book are never taught unless one is lucky enough to encounter a teacher who has read Adler's book on the subject.

Since the requirement to hold a bachelor's degree is common for teachers in our secondary schools, it might be appropriate to look at the adjective "bachelor" and its historical usage. People certainly didn't mean the same thing when they referred to unmarried males, uninitiated in the ways of marriage, as when they referred to holders of a bachelor's degree in liberal arts.
