DO NOT BUY!!!

There is a group of money makers here on audible that are copying the works of authors and then adding a bunch of fake reviews to increase ranking and sales. This is one of those books. You can tell because all the reviewers posted reviews on similar books. Click on the reviewer's name and you'll see a list of books they reviewed and how they are all the same.

Many times the reviews are copied from other books or they are written in non-native English like some of the examples here

"This audio-book extremely extraordinary"

"This is so great book and I so love on how it was written"

"This book useful tips and tricks which i found very helpful"

All these reviews seem to be written by the same person.

If you see such books, copy and paste this review and report to audible, so they can remove these hucksters from the platform so it's easier to find real books by real authors

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.

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.

Superb book that will not disappoint anyone!!

My oh my. This book is game changer when it comes to Reading with a purpose! I've had a private education my entire life, and was never taught the reading methods in this book. This is probably why from my elementary days up through high-school, I despised reading unless the book was the attention grabbing type. Somehow I stumbled upon an Evelyn wood speed reading book that my dad bought back many, many years ago. That's when I started creating speed reading goals, but I new there had to be other secrets out there. Then I looked all over the internet for other speeding reading books, and finally hit the jackpot with this one. Superb book that will not disappoint anyone trying to increase their reading speed, or to give as a gift to someone who doesn't read. Comprehension is by far the most important factor, and you will start learning material like never before. Also, subscribe to his emails because he sends out extra information about every week or so.
