to reveal what's in the lane(s) next to you is simple. The general idea is to not have the side view mirrors overlapping the rear-view mirror.
However, getting used to it may take some time. But give it a chance and you'll soon realize that it works. I could explain it myself but this link will do it better.
Like I said, give yourself a chance to get used to it and you will see more than you ever have.
I personally adjust mine similar to what the article states.
