    "70% junk and filler content"

    Most of content is random opinions, no scientific citations. a good 20% of book seems to be trying really hard to sell tou on how wonderful speed reading is.

    Overall quality of content is similar random opinions of replying posters to a reddit post by a teenager on the internet.

    The book is cheap, yet still not worth it.

    "INTERESTING GUIDE"

    Speed reading doesn't only mean you're fast at reading. It also means you understand what you've listen. .

    This book corrected all my mistakes on speed reading and what's good about this one is that the author provided exercises one could practice to get better at speed reading. This is so far the best speed reading guide I've read and the methods amazingly worked. I just have to get rid of old bad habits.defenetly it is worthful book

    "A GOOD READER"

    This book does a great job of pointing out very simple obstacles to increased reading speed. My reading speed increased by just limiting a couple key mistakes. Both of which I never realized I did before this book. Great book. Definitely a mustfor all readers of all ages

    "more knowledgable book"

    it was again reminded of the importance of utilizing the ability to listen and comprehend in our fast paced world. This makes coping with both positive and negative changes more able to be incorporated into our knowledge base. I definitely recommend it .

    "AWESOME BOOK AND VERY INFORMATIVE"

    This book provides an introduction to speed reading and although it will help this should only be considered as the starting point.. It's a good book to start and practice and apply the tools for the entrance exams.. Hopefully the tools mentioned here could favor me in scoring good score for the reading part of the DAT.Very good for beginner like me who wants to improve on listening skills. Clear definition and actionable recommendations and action points.

    "nice book"

    I have taken many speed reading classes but they've never made sense. This book actually explains everything in an easy to understand way. Plus it's short. Its straight and to the point so that you can start practicing what you've learned immediately.

    I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in increasing their speed of reading

    "helpful guide"

    I chose this book because I want to read more and reading faster seemed the most logical step towards this goal. Ironically this is probably the fastest I've ever read a book. The information is insightful and immediately useful. I used the techniques from the book while reading it. "You get what you pay for, and sometimes... You get more."

    great read, however, can't say results for speed reading. I have to practice the technique for weeks if these methods will improve reading speed.
