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!
