It's good, for sure, but it falls into the "Overmind" conclusion that Clarke tends to lean into (he does something similar with City and The Stars - it falls apart at the very end...)

Rama on the other hand is downright the "best" Science Fiction book i've ever read; It's not my favourite (Speaker for the Dead claims that mantle), but it's the best.

It's real and it's a real concept. You can knock through a book way faster if you silence the internal monologue and just read.

However the advice is for non-fiction, not fiction.

You're not reading fiction to plow through eight books because your essay is due. You're reading fiction for pleasure, so enjoy it.
