Paradox resolved

It is a paradox that one not knowing how to read a book could not start reading this book. Those of us who can read a book find here that there is more to such reading than we had imagined. Two kinds of reading are possible, integral and "syntopic" (sic), that is, reading a single book analytically from cover to cover, and reading several books with a single topic in mind based on some personal theme. Read this book to resolve this paradox for yourself.
