It could be that I've put together some of the other things I've learned over the years with this method (also they didn't have iPads back then so you can adjust the text size and turn pages immediately).
At any rate I recommend the book. The drills are sooooo simple and effective.
This is actually the first time that I'm convince that I will be a speed reader at the end of the book. After 22 years, that feels GREAT!!!
The good thing is that the techniques in the book really do produce results above and beyond what you ever expected...the bad news is that it does not happen over-night, it takes good bit of dedication and consistency. You have to really want it to complete this course of 36 chapters.
The fact that it does NOT happen over-night is something that you should be really happy about - because it's like body building - only it's mind building !
For those willing to put in the work, the rewards will be great and you will not regret it....and you can keep your newly developed skill for the rest of your life !
Throughout the course I reached practise rates in the mid to late 2000s with a final rate of 1900 wpm.
The best part is finishing a book in one day - it's something I've always wanted to be able to do - and now it's a reality.
I cannot recommend this book enough....and on so many different levels.
Buy it !
Remember one thing though - with any rapid reading the faster you go the resolution of the material does drop - like going from colour to black and white - but the important details are still there.
The course teaches you many different gears to be applied to reading for different rates from meadium, to fast, to really fast so you can pickup and go and adjust as required - along with a lot of different exercises on recall to improve comprehension as well as study oriented reading exercises to increase retention, recall and comprehension.
It really does have it all.
