The point is how should one proceed with the book? The Author writes on the preface:" Dont read this book!!Instead , work with it.write in it,talk,aloud to it,talk back to it-use your pen or pencil,your voice,not just your eyes and mind.". But its very difficult to recall what one has read after marking with pencils,analysing,having a relook at the book again.It look odd to take notes too....i would like to share how i took notes of the words and its origins...
As the book contents is divided into topics like:
1. How to talk about Science and Scientists. 2.How to talk about liars and lying. the topics can be divided likewise.
EXAMPLE:Try to make notes like the following and refer regularly...
How to talk about actions
- To malign
- malediction:'an evilsaying'
- 'dico','dictus':'to say or tell'
- 'volo':'to wish','to will'
- 'facio','factus':'to do'or'make'
