Like rocket fuel for the mind!
What is speed reading? How do you do it? Now that we’ve entered the Information Age, more and more people are asking these questions every day. Whether you’d like to get through the morning newspaper faster, manage that thick stack of reports and proposals on your desk, or just curl up with a juicy novel, speed reading is one of the most valuable skills you can possess.
Few programs for reading speed and comprehension can boast that they’re both highly effective and entertaining. Unlike most other programs, Power Speed Reading offers potent techniques to improve comprehension and speed when reading, while delivering powerful hypnosis methods for overcoming any resistance to flying through reading material.
If you’ve tried other speed-reading programs before and failed, fasten your seat belt for a fun and fabulous ride like nothing you’ve ever experienced. Power Speed Reading really packs a punch, allowing you to break through all barriers and improve your reading ability, leaving only one question: How soon can you get started?
I've become a fan of Ms. Montgomery's programs, but this one is not really a speed reading hypnosis package. It contains five chapters. The first is an explanation of how speed reading works, and some timed exercises to get you started. The second is some random music that, while entertaining, contains no narration or guided imagery at all. I'm still not sure why it's there. Then the next chapter explains binaural beat frequency theory, followed by the last two chapters which are actaully her Personal Confidence Hypnosis System. Now I have to say here that I bought the Personal Confidence program separately first, and it changed my life. But I don't see how that relates to speed reading. I think perhaps there was an error in editing, because there are NO hypnosis programs in this package that relate directly to speed reading. I would recommend the Mega Mind Power system that is also offered here at Audible instead, because it does contain all the explanatory material given in this package along with two speed reading hypnosis programs, plus several other great programs like Power Learning and Focus and Concentration. You get about four times the information for about twice the price. There are some issues with the editing of that program as well (see my review of it), but overall it is a great program and well worth the time and money.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who wants to buy a book that says it's about speedreading but ends up with a book about poorly written mediation scripts.
Has Power Speed Reading Performance System turned you off from other books in this genre?
No. Just hers.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment. At first I was interested to see where she would go with it but then I realized we were fooled. One minute you hear a story about speed reading the next you are meditating about a sunny beach?
Any additional comments?
This book needs to be taken down. It is not instructional in either speed reading or mediatating.
