But he is right, you just read it like any other book.

Take it chapter by chapter, dont rush into it. Start with Palming andwork on that for a week or so then move on.

when i first got it, along with royal road to card magic. i would skip around to learn stuff that i wanted to do, but that didn't really do much for me because i missed a lot of the basic techniques. start at the beginning, and master each thing chronologically (master stuff before you move on. this may seem tedious, but it will be well worth the time when your done)

Just do what it says to do... simple as that. If you don't understand an action, just use the dictionary or dictionary.com

How is someone supposed to answer that question? How many slights do you know already?

Well.. it was just because the books palms vanishes etc. seems so enourmous... and who would like to know 25 different vanishes... it seems like too much... that was why i wonder if anyone has good experience with some sort of a reading pattern....

I would say that if there's something specific you'd like to learn right away then skip to that ...
... otherwise, start on page one and absorb it all.

It is good to know a whole bunch of vanishes. You can never know to many and you can use each one as a precaution.

while you will probably only use a handful of the vanishes, flourishes... in the book, it is good to learn it all. both for dexterity, and to learn what works best in your routines.

Check out coinvanish.com in the foundations section. It tells you what you should focus on in the beggining with bobos book.
