Index entries to assist reading and selection

Comments

  • Scanning an index can be a useful way to find out what is in a book and think about what is interesting to you
  • Your reading can be easier because you have primed your mind to the topics in the book – almost like doing warm-up exercises before doing a sport.

  • At the beginning of the index in each book, there are tables suggesting which entries might be useful and why. 
  • The following tables bring together those suggestions using themes that are important across the books.

  • Scanning this section may help you work with these books to your best advantage.
