Summary

Reading is an important part of our lives. Whether you have read articles, books, magazines, or any other text for school, work, or even pleasure, it's a skill we have learned when we were young. And the great thing about reading is that it helps us learn new things and expand our knowledge. So imagine how much more you can learn if you are able to read at a faster rate, while still being able to understand what you have read?

This skill is known as speed reading. This is a skill for people who want to optimize their lives and keep making themselves better. Speed reading allows you to learn at a faster rate, which also means that you will learn more in a shorter amount of time. It's one of the skills learned by those who are always on the path to self-improvement.

Once you have mastered speed reading, learning may come a lot easier. Of course, learning how to speed read is a process in itself. Speed reading doesn't just mean getting through the text with the quickest possible time, you also have to understand what you have read and recall all of the most important parts. In this book, you will learn all about speed reading. From what it is, how it works, to how you can learn it and make it part of your skill set, there's a lot for us to cover! By the end of this book, you should have all the information you need to start learning and honing this skill to achieve mastery.

Awful

I'm sorry, but this book is awful, it is poorly structured, organized, it's extremly repetitive, and it goes on and on about all sorts of things surrounding the idea of concept of speed reading, but nothing about improving reading speed itself.

I don't not know this book, I don't know it got so many positive reviews, I don't believe they are real, because I can't imagine anyone having anything positive to say!

Do yourself a favor and buy another speed reading book seriously. I'm returning this one right now!

Wow

This book could’ve been about half the link that it was. It had a lot of good information, however it continually repeated itself over and over throughout the chapters. It contained a lot of fluff, for example why you would want to learn speed reading. I know why I want to learn to speed read that’s why I bought the book why do I want to know why everybody else wants to learn speed reading. So take it with a grain of salt that this book contains a lot of fluff and unnecessary information with tidbits of good useful information intermixed and no way to navigate it.

Love it

Very clear, a pleasure to read to be honest...
Just on the website I couldn't find the exercise, but they are explained step by step in the book.
My personal opinion is that is totally worth the money.
