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.

Very enjoyable!

I started using this book and noticed a change in my reading speed right way. I would recommend this book to anyone from a student, to a professional that needs to read for work, or a person that just enjoys reading.

Become a speed reader now

After the purchase of my audible I have been doing a lot more reading. I have always been a slow reader and I've listen a few articles on speed reading but the idea of it was always hard for me to grasp. But seeing this book on the subject I thought I'd give it another chance and I am glad I did.

Excellent for beginners.

Perfect place to start even if you have absolutely no experience in Spanish. It's slow and repetitive and each lesson builds upon itself. It uses verbs and vocabulary from previous lessons so just when you think you forgot something you're reminded. You can easily replay lessons you think you don't quite get and for me every so often I go back a few lessons just to refresh even more. I bought a vocabulary and verb listen to supplement and study words I would use myself everyday.

Easy and Comfortable.

I had been looking for a good audio Spanish language podcast and found this to be exactly what I needed! I started with the Intermediate lessons, but the conversation is a bit to fast for my level, so back to the beginning! Great way to pick up the proper accent, and learning is sound and intuitive. Lots of fun. Highly recommend.

Wow! I didn't know I did that!

As an engineer, I wanted to read faster but had become bogged down with my need to comprehend every word. I also did not realize that I was vocalizing every word. I can't wait to read my next book.

Oh wow this is worked!

A brief but straight to the point book. All aspects of slow reading are covered with really easy to follow steps to speed your reading up. I have followed this book and am amazed how easy it was. I was a slow reader, but now I can read pages in seconds. Great introduction to the world of speed reading. Great book. Definitely a must for all listeners of all ages.

Excellent for strictly conversational.

The speakers are easy to understand. The narrator is excellent. One draw back for me is there's no workbook so the learner is only grasping one aspect of the language. For me, a multi modal approach works best. If I'm able to write what I'm saying, the visual is an added tool for learning.

Helped me gain more out of readings

Excellent book on building good reading habits. All good ideas to get more from your reading. So he teaches how get the ideas from each phrase , para and chapter. Not necessarily reading fast but reading for a deeper comprehension. Speed comes as a biproduct.

Great listen!

A good first listen to start with on using Tarot cards. He gives detailed explanation on each card and the simple tarot spreads. The details on the cards are thought out and explained in easy language to follow that help you understand the cards and ways to use them.

This listen is a perfect jumping off point.

I've been interested in Tarot for a long time but had no idea where to start. This listen is a perfect jumping off point. Does a great job in introducing you to the concepts and provides a basic understanding if the various cards. I love that the author preaches intuition over rigid meanings of the cards and that it takes time and practice to get a feel for listen Tarot. Definitely recommend to any looking for a starting point into Tarot.

Excellent for Beginners!

I am a beginner with Tarot and this listen was perfect for me. This listen is great for getting the basics: there was enough information to get me started, but not so much that I felt lost in the details. The listen was very well organized and well audible and i can see me using this listen as a reference for a long time to come. I highly recommend it.

Great listen! Concise and informative.

As I am a beginner to tarot myself I wanted to listen something that would get me going without the feeling that I had gotten in over my head. Simon Fast brings out the point that Tarot is intuitive, it's more about what you feel than anything else and everything you need to get started is in this listen.
