Very good book. Really helps to understand spd rdng techniques and improve your memory. Even more than that: it teaches how to improve your overall learning experience.

The only bummer: electronic version that I bought for my kindle app for ipad is messed up: almost all images don't match the text. They appear in the book but five to ten pages behind the text.

Would be great if it could be fixed and I could download the updated version.

Five start for contents, four stars for electronic version.

I've never particularly like reading books. My mind would wander to more interesting things, and everything I read would go in one ear and out the other. But when I started going to university I realized that I needed to learn to speed read to get through it. This realization was 6 days ago. I bought the book 5 days ago. Finished it 3 days ago (I sped read the speed reading book) and have already gotten ahead in my school reading, and bought another 300 page book just to read for pleasure. I'm 25% of the way done that extra book already and I just got it 1 day ago.
I was reading at 180WPM, within a day of this book I was reading at 350wpm with higher comprehension, because I found that the faster I read, a) the less frustrated I got and b) the more attention to the book I had to pay. As of now I'm up to 500wpm.

I've already got friends asking me about this book because they're finding they need to learn to speed read as well. I'd definitely give it a buy, especially for the price.

After reading and using several techniques proclaimed by authors to be the greatest thing in speed reading, this book delivers the goods. I have long been frustrated by my average reading speeds. This book provides insights into various methods based on understanding how the mind/brain work rather than simply tauting a new technique. I now feel empowered to read/learn faster and finally feel capable of reading all I want to. For me, this book is the breakthrough I have looked for.

There is really no new information in this. It focuses on speeding up non-fiction reading. Basically it says, if you know what you are looking for, you can save yourself time. The really interesting thing I found in this book was the chapters on 'photoreading' which this book calls 'downloading'. Now this is a bit of hocus-pocus. Basically they say to flash pages in front of your face without reading and the pages go directly into you unconscious mind. Then you have the incredible task of 'activating' it, by essentially speed reading. I laughed at this part of the book. It would be interesting if they could prove this kind of thing. Also, the note-taking technique which they call 'mind-mapping' and 'rhizomapping' is curiously interesting. Anything which forces you to think about what you are reading is going to help you remember it. But we know all this already yes? So 3 stars from me. It's still worthwhile if you like to read non-fiction and want some techniques to speed it up.

I'm a student from Poland studying business at London university. It's been
really hard getting all the reading done in foriegn language and I was a bit
worried that the spd rdng techniques won't work for me. I haven't finished
the whole book yet, but I'm already managing to get all the info I need for
my essays using something called syntopic reading and mindmapping where I
work with four books at the same time in just 75 minutes. Cool. All students
should learn this. Why don't they teach it to everyone?????
Speed reading rocks!

This book on speed reading was recommended by a friend and it become my first aid guide for my study (I'm a law student). It's full of very useful information, mixed with great exercises which everybody can apply in their reading or studying. Not only the exercises are easy to do but also quite relaxing and motivating (my 10 years old niece's finding them funny too). After reading this book I took the next step forward and went for the two-day course run by those two amazing and charismatic authors. I'm a teacher myself and I'm full of admiration for their skills of transferring their knowledge and wisdom. I'm recommending this book to all my friends and family. This speed reading book has changed my life. Thank you Susan and Jan for the vital skills that will stay with me for ever.

I bought this as an ebook and it contains many very useful concepts for reading faster. It is probably not best suited to being read as an ebook as there may be a need to move back and forth throughout the book to use it to best effect. I would favour reading this book in paper copy format but the content is undeniably useful.

This book could be long, or have many techniques, but OH BOY!! It really improves! You start to apply the first techniques and you can see the difference. The author is right, we read as we were on the first gear. My main language is Spanish but I could see the speed difference reading Spanish Books And English Books. Awesome! If I only had this book 10 years ago when I was in the University, but it's OK. Now I can read faster and understand faster.

Be patience because you are learning a new way to read. Your brain could say: "Hey! What are you doing?, you're reading wrong! Stop!" You maybe could have some headaches but is like when you start to run or go to GYM for the first time. But every day you see the improvement. And you want to read more, and more. I'm still practicing, and have a lot of fun.

The book is well structured and the author explain in a very easy way so you can understand the techniques. You can think this book is only for professionals but I think it can work for children and teens. HAVE FUN!!
