The more I've practiced this, the more I've come to believe that this is an essential learning tool (and one that I haven't been using properly for many years). The difference in learning between taking notes and not taking them feels, intuitively, like it's at least tenfold, maybe a hundredfold. If you don't take notes while reading a non-fiction, "teaching" book, you might as well not have bothered reading it."
