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.👍👍

This Type Of Reading Makes Sense

I purchased this audio book to improve my reading speed. It turned out to be a book which shattered all my dreams of speed reading, but it taught me more significant lesson about reading a book. "It is not about speed reading but speed comprehension."Ryan James explains in the entire book on how to improve your comprehension. Once you are able to improve comprehension, speed shall follow.

Different Insight On Speed Reading Offered..

Totally different from other speed reading books. Sure, skipping and scanning are faster ways to get through the text but as this audio book points out, these techniques are not really reading. They are usually handy but when you really need to read something, this audio book gives you a great advise.
