Achieving Business Excellence with John Spence

How To Remember What You Read

Because I read so many business books, people often ask me how I retain everything I am reading. Here is how I do it…



  1. John, I love the idea of labeling your highlighted segments. I’ll make stars or exclamation points, but that’s not telling me anything. And you’ve made it crystal clear that if we want to master the content, we have to return to it and *do* something with it. Great video!

  2. Tywon says:

    Wow that’s amazing! I am just now getting into books and that is always the most intimidating thing. Should I read the whole thing? How can I finish it? At what point should I take notes? I think you Anwered all of those questions for me thank you.

  3. Barry Hall says:

    As usual John great advice and much appreciated. Many thanks Barry.

      Loved your video! As a reading specialist this is how we teach our kids to read. I love the idea of connecting how we teach our kids to being successful literate adults .
