yes but no

what he said

Only if you have a photographic memory.

I can do this, but it can backfire, as in when a plane’s delayed and I finish off a thick novel before departure. Since I’ve already read the book, and can recite parts of it, I find myself with nothing to look forward to.

If you have the right mind for it. Some people can do this (me, for example) and others cannot. Most people, however, lose most of what they read shortly after they read it…unless they have reinforcement, there is no need for the mind to retain the data, so it drops it.

Basically, if you don’t use it, you lose it. This is why teachers push for students to take notes…the very act of writing something down forces you to focus on the data, reinforcing it in your mind.

Keep in mind that books list the ideals…there is no substitute for real world experience. You might be better off spending your time working in the field and learning by doing then by reading.
