From time to time people have wondered why reading is important. There seems so many other things to do with one's time.

Reading is important for a variety of reasons. We will look at some of those fundamental reasons below, but it is important to realize that struggling with vital reading skills is not a sign of low intelligence.

For example, John Corcoran, who wrote The Teacher Who Couldn't Read, is a very intelligent man.
He graduated from High School and College, became a popular High School teacher and later a successful business man, all without being able to read.

Many highly intelligent people have struggled with reading; although, when properly taught, most people can learn to read easily and quickly.

Now, if a man like John Corcoran can succeed without reading, why is reading important? A person should really read Mr.

Corcoran's story to get the feeling of shame, loneliness and fear that he experienced before he learned to read.

He was able to succeed in spite of this major handicap because he was a man of intelligence, ability and determination.

But, make no mistake, it was a handicap that made life harder and less enjoyable.
