Syntopical reading

If there is one thing you plan to read this week, but have not thought of any, why not give this one a chance: Why you should ‘read’ a product like a book

There are four types of reading: elementary, inspectional, analytical and the highest level, syntopical. All of us basically move between Elementary and Analytical. But if you were to have observing, analysing and strategising as part of your core tasks — a postgrad student, for instance — you might want to think about leveling up your skill to Syntopical reading.

When you think about it, this is a skill everyone else should be having. Also, syntopical. I like how it sounds.
