It is a problem, but I remember an Israeli intelligence analyst friend once indicated that he didn't read the news; he read the history books. I find that in most instances, I evaluate the title or topic sentence and then, if interested, read the LAST paragraph carefully. With most nonfiction, I study the conclusion or final chapter only. If very interested, I might look at the introduction. The last several years, I say to myself, "You've got just so many more days to live. Is this a really worthwhile use of that limited time?"
