Vilsack tells us that he's "collecting strategies for how you read these books." Like? "Well, there is the strategy that is articulated by one person that you read the first chapter and the last chapter. The strategy that some have articulated is you read the first sentence of each paragraph, every other page." Whichever one he settles on: "I will try to read as much as I possibly can of scholarly works that give me a sense of what people are thinking."
