Yes, get the book

Anyone who has done any personal development work knows that it's not the advice that makes the difference, it's being able to put the advice into practice. Kam Knight clearly lays out how to put the advice into practice so by the time u reach the end of the recording you are automatically reading faster.

Delivers on Ambitious Claim

At first I thought the title made a ludicrous claim, read a 200 page book in one hour, didn't think it was possible. After listening to the audio, I definetly think its possible. I just finished listening to it so I'm not there yet, but I'll tell you, already I'm reading three times faster and comprehending at least twice as much as before. For me, a turtle of a reader, its saying a lot.

I liked the drills

All the practice drills were really helpful, without them, I don't think I would have taken the time to apply any of the suggestions.

Interesting and Fasinating

I thought this book would drone on about skimming and skipping passages to achieve speed, but it doesn't do that at all. Not one bit. It provides doable and practical ways to enhance reading and comprehension. The keyword here is comprehension. The author iterates over and over that speed reading is not reading with out comprehension. So he offers powerful ways to read with comprehension in mind.

Speed reading is my new super power.

After reading this book, I really was able to increase my reading speed exponentially. I did not have to learn a new skill but learned my eyes and brain have a hidden talent that was buried within me all along. Buy this book. Learn the technique and then teach it to your children. They will thank you for the rest of their lives.

Surprising!

I'm half way through and the advice is not difficult, its quite the opposite. I'm surprised by how easy it is. As Ralph Castle mentions, its all about changing habits, which is the difficult part, but the book is designed with that in mind, to help break those habits.
