Book Description

For the first time, in a book, the secrets that have made the completely revised Evelyn Wood learning program so effective and popular are revealed so that the general public may enter this incredible and dynamic learning process.


Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The subtitle more accurately describes this book's contents. Frank offers in book form what has been available in courses and in computer software under the Evelyn Wood name. The techniques cater to secondary and college students who are professionally oriented. Chapter headings like "Supersonic Writing" deliver techniques based on research. This manual, used as a study guide, can help students, parents, and teachers to be aware of their own knowledge and to monitor their learning for understanding. The International Reading Associations' Research Within Reach , edited by Donna Alvermann and others (1987), calls this approach metacognition, but the ideas are the same. The book includes sections on exams and papers, hand movements, and graphic organizers.

I have never read a book before about reading faster with better comprehension. I was attracted to this book because so many people ask me if there is a book I can recommend that helps with reading speed and comprehension.
While I found many things to like that will help you with your reading, I also found many things that I did not like. Graded just on that basis, I would give the book two or three stars.
At the same time, someone with average reading speed and comprehension can probably improve speed and comprehension if the book's advice is followed and practiced daily. Graded just on that basis, I would give the book four stars.
Getting better with reading, note taking, writing, and test taking is all about understanding what needs to be done, implementing those approaches, getting feedback, and practicing a lot. Someone in middle school or high school is in a perfect position to do all of those things. Beginning with college, it becomes harder. Graduate school often causes skill levels to decline in these areas. Those who are working and not taking courses will find that they may not have the disciplined environment needed to improve.
First, let me clear up some misconceptions. Reading faster is not "skimming" in which you skip most of the material looking for the high points. Reading faster is about reading all of the words, but by using better techniques. Also, I do not believe that there is only one way to read faster. I use several techniques for different kinds of material, several of which are not mentioned in this book. This book argues for lots of repetition in reading, writing, and studying. That repetition can be avoided by using methods other than those described in this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hello my name is Mr. Stephens March 2, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hello, I am a 17 year old young man. I have searched and searched for a speed reading book that could help me not only in school, but also in the real world. I have always wanted to read huge books in two hours and so forth. What I would like to say is that for a week, this book is good. Go check it out at the library, don't buy it on Amazon. I have looked at a lot of speed reading material. I have Howard Bergs biggest bag of garbage Super Speed Reading. I didn't get anything out of that. I have Speed Reading made easy which is pretty out dated. And I have the book that I highly recommend, Breakthrough Speed Reading by Peter Kump. That is the book to get folks. If you are truly serious about learning how to go through pages of War and Peace, or the Bible or whatever you read. It has drills that help you FOR MORE THAN ONE WEEK! The only reason I think this book has sold so much is because people want a quick fix, but I can tell you personally that if you want to read fast, and complete novels in one sitting (less than an hour) and actually get motivated with what you are do GET BREAKTHROUGH SPEED READING BY PETER KUMP FROM AMAZON INSTEAD OF THIS REALLY ELEMENTARY EVELYN WOOD 7 DAY THING. I was disappointed when I got Breakthrough because it was the book I wished I would have gotten first!

This still has to be one of the best offerings available on this subject. For the persistently faithful this is the book I would recommend, it has all the exercises in step by step form to set you firmly on your way to accomplishing an effectively fast rate of reading with a good level of comprehension.
I would definitely recommend this book to parents of highschoolers or students of any age as this book also outlines some very essential and excellent methods of note taking to help you prepare for and ace exams. I've managed to increase my own reading speed from 630 wpm to over 1400wpm in only the first 4weeks of trying out this system,but and I stress the following, in order to succeed with speed reading you must maintain a high degree of persistence in doing the given exercises for at least 1 month, don't question the reasons for or effectiveness of the exercises until you've gone through all the methods given in the book faithfully - if you don't feel you have the determination or persistence to reach your ultimate goal then like all else you'll try - it probably won't work for you. However this method really does work! so what are you waiting for....buy it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, Especially for the Price! June 23, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Judging by the success stories in all these speed reading books I've been going over, there sure are a lot of 800+wpm readers out there (among whom I DO NOT rank!). This book makes similar fantastic claims...you can read up to 3,000 wpm, etc.
One thing this book is pretty emphatic about, though, is that this kind of speed takes WORK, and regular "workouts." In other words, you have keep at it, or you lose the ability.
The book doesn't focus on speed reading. Rather, it presents a whole learning system, of which speed reading is a part. I bought it primarily because it was cheap, and was pleasantly surprised to discover that there is some pretty sound study-skills instruction here.
This is very much another accelerated learning book, without explicitly being touted as one. Kaplan's main reading strategy is "Layered Reading," which, if you've read other books in this field, you'll recognize. You begin by previewing (headings, bold print, etc.), then do a fast "read" through, at 2-4 seconds a page, to get a little more information, then do it again at a slightly slower speed, then, back to the beginning, and read through at your comfortable reading speed. Then you review.
How can this possibly be "accelerated"? Because when you read, you read at 1500 words per minute. If you can, that is! The key to speedy learning with this system--as, arguably, with all these accelerated learning systems--is being able to read fast. Very fast.
This book's sub-900 wpm reading tactic involves learning to read chunks of a page at once...you mentally divide the page down the middle, and then horizontally 5 times or so.
