Publisher's Summary

Read less, remember more!

Do you get bogged down with memos and e-mail at the office? Is there never enough time for those books you've bought to get ahead? Are you always falling behind with your work, your studies, or even just your newspaper and magazine subscriptions?

For years, speed-reading techniques have been reserved mainly for people who can afford an expensive course. But now you can learn to read faster in the privacy of your own home - without having to mortgage that home to pay for it!

The highly effective techniques in Master Reader will cut your reading time in half or more while dramatically increasing your recall and understanding of everything you read. Drawing on years of research and experience, the reading experts who developed Master Reader have created a reading program that really works. Rather than teaching only one or two techniques, Master Reader teaches you how to:

  • Read faster than you ever thought possible in any environment
  • Eliminate wasteful, non-productive reading time
  • Remember more of what you read and be able to recall it immediately
  • Shift gears and increase comprehension for those especially difficult reading tasks
  • Listen, speak, and write better, whatever the situation
  • Zip through the mountains of printed and electronic information you have to deal with every day

Make your reading time faster, smarter, and more enjoyable with Master Reader!

Not good for audible format

This audio book refers to several exercises in a workbook, which is not provided with the audio version of the book. So while there is interesting information, this audio book is not effective in its purpose to improve one's reading ability. The practice reading in the workbook is necessary. Too bad.

Master Reader

I was confused with the audiobook referring to a workbook without mention how to obtain the workbook.

Maximising reading time

Excellent resource with practical, easy to build on, step by step advice. Not just another speed reading course. Far from it, it is an effective and efficient framework for most types of thinking around learning. Should be taught in schools! Don't overlook downloading the workbook.
