The Book should be lifted level to the table on which it is to rest with the left hand placed on the cover and the right placed on the back acting as a solid base. You should then rotate the book 90° and slowly place it on the table so that only the spine is touching the surface. Slowly open The Book and balance it so that, without touching the pages, it falls open to the first page. This is the only correct method of opening The Book and any other method you choose to use will only result in your own misfortune.
Now that you have properly opened The Book You must perfect your reading proceadure. Quickly go to the nearest watering hole and wash your hands. Upon returning you may turn the page and absorb its contents. You must repeat this process after reading each page and before turning too the next. This should be repeated until the end of The Book. You have now finished The Book. Now you will be in Dio's favor, and you will profit greatly from this. You will see all of your greatest dreams come true.
