A Treasure Found, Restored, and Now Available: Three years after writing the wonderfully expanded third edition of How to Read a Book, Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren did a series of thirteen 14-minute videos about the very essence of the book. The videos were produced and published by Encyclopaedia Britannica. For unknown reasons sometime after their original publication, these videos have been lost all these years.
