I have found three editions of How to Read a Book: The Classic Guide to Intelligent Reading. One was published on 9/30/14; a second one was from 1972; a third was from the 1940s. Is one of these versions better than the others?
Update: My goal is to read complex fiction and sophisticated philosophy with greater comprehension. I would like to remember more details books that I read. I believe that this book gives some ideas on how to do this. The newest version would likely refer to using the internet. I would prefer to read a shorter book rather than a longer book, so I thought an older one may be better. My other concern is that Adler was a better writer (which may not be true), and that the most recent version has lower quality ideas in it compared to the earlier versions. But I do not know much about the differences of the different editions.
