About the Author

Allan Sack's lifelong interest in words--their history, meanings, connotations, pronunciation and orthography--earned him the title "The Word Man" from his friends and colleagues. In 1951, he and an associate, Jack Yourman, formed the Speed Reading Institute, Inc., thus coining the phrase Speed Reading. Over the next thirty years Mr. Sack taught developmental reading, study method, vocabulary development, and preparation for the verbal section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test at Rutgers University Extension and Graduate School of Business Administration. He also served as Director of the Adult Reading Laboratory at City College of New York. During the 1970's and '80s, Mr. Sack presented workshops throughout the US and Canada showing teachers how to make vocabulary learning enjoyable for both student and teacher.
