Very little substance...

Most of this book is about why speed reading s a good idea. Entirely too much time is spent on that subject for a reader who was already invested enough in the idea that they purchased the book. I was disappointed by how little substantive advice and techniques were discussed, and felt like (just my opinion) I could have done an online search and found the same info myself for free. I could not recommend this book in its current edition.

Interesting reading

Very helpful, informative, and right to the point. No BS. But what are the key words for speed reading? Adjectives and adverbs seem to slow you down. I can see that. OK, and the verb would be the middle. Scanning away from the middle should land you on the subject and or the predicate. It would be a logical move but understanding logic is another cann of worms to open since the meaning can change depending on how to interpret logic. And in moods and feelings where logic is defied, the author could be expressing a whole gamut of emotions way out on the left field instead of the right field. Reading in the speed of light can land you on the moon instead of earth. It's one of my fears I have faced before. Context is important, Yes!. And practice makes better. I liked the book and the subject and everything in-between.👍👍

Clear, straightforwardly to the point

Clear, straightforwardly to the point. The proposals/procedures are extraordinary and they work quite well. Following two or three months applying the various methods that I think work for me, I have seen an expansion in my understanding pace and cognizance

Don’t be fooled…

This book does not tell you how to speed read at all. It tells you why speed reading is effective, it tells you when not to do it, it also tells you how to ‘exercise your eyes’, but at no point does it explain the theory behind or techniques to achieve speed reading. In fact, it finished at a point where I thought I’d just finished the prefix! I actually thought I’d bought an abbreviated version by mistake, but nope. Don’t be fooled!
