我为什么抛弃Kindle,重新回归纸质书?
当你并不明确你的问题,你对某个问题思考良久,需要一些启发,但是你又不太记得你在哪个章节里看到过的时候,怎么办?

或者我们再一起想想:你是如何将一个问题,从模糊「了解」到可以「运用」,这个过程是如何发生的?
我猜想,在阅读的情境中,这个过程大概会是:当我们读同一类大主题的书,不同作者谈到同一个话题的时候,所引发的你的思考。这个思考的片段让你兴奋。
在你兴奋的时候,在这本书勾起沉睡在你脑中的相似的知识片段的时候,如果你能「即时」捕捉记录下来,这对你将知识碎片串联成成体系的知识结构有莫大帮助。这或许是最为关键的动作。

所以纸质书对人的思考最有帮助的地方在于:那些模糊的、呼之欲出的、似是而非的、就差捅一下窗户纸你就快理解和「想清楚」了的时刻,是最需要借助纸和笔帮助你厘清思考的时候。

Some reference points on the science of making important decisions: 1) Have more than one "yes or no" choice, 2) Consult diversity, 3) Plan things to get better, worse, and weird, 4) Hold a pre-mortem, 5) List values that affect the decision, and 6) Rank each option based on those values.
