I figured I will post this in order to help all the new members that just got the book and are trying to figure out the best way of reading it.
I will tell you what helped me.
I have read the book three times. The first time I have read everything and in 2 days (and I am not much of a reader). But being impatient that I am, I wanted to get to the end as fast as I could, so I didn't take any notes, just get a grasp of where Dean was going and how his strategies were different from everyone else.
The second time, I started making notes after every chapter of what needs to be done. Then, I set the book aside and reviewed everything that I have written.
The third time, I was stopping after every chapter and looked at my notes, let it sink in and make a plan of what and how to do what I need to accomplish.
On the downside, yes, it will take a little longer to go from reading to action. On the upside, when you are ready to move -- YOU ARE READY!!! You will have the book in your head and you will have notes and you will have a plan, that is the most important thing... MUST HAVE THE PLAN!!!
Hopefully it helps. As usual, if anyone has any questions, feel free to PM me.
