Map the book before starting to read end-to-end. Review the chapters, and the internal structure. Develop a mental plan for what you're going to learn from the book, and only then start reading. You'll be able to vary the speed a lot - some things you'll read very carefully and even reread to make sure you understand (and take notes for stuff you'll want to remember), other parts you'll skim or even skip altogether.
