Although I do not think speed reading is applied to all kinds of reading (leisure reading, poems, etc.), one cannot deny its usefulness to a lot of circumstances.
I highly recommend this book. Whether you're a student who has a lot of readings to go through, a researcher in the sciences who reads scientific journals, a lawyer with numerous cases being read everyday or someone who wants to improve speed reading (while maintaining comprehension of course), this book is for you.
I also loved the myths about speed reading and I must say that this book is quite motivational. I find it very helpful
Nathan starts by explaining why it is so important to read fast. We are hit all of the time with too much information and too little time. The only solution here is to be able to consume that information faster. Though, why don't we all do it if it is so easy?
The answer as Nathan explains is because of a number of obstacles. He goes through each of these barriers including Retreating, The Voice and word Fixation and explains how to overcome them.
He points out that it isn't just speed, but comprehension. Our brains can handle the additional information and we allow our believed limitations get in the way of reaching our potential.
Finally, he goes step by step through measuring how fast you are now, the key techniques and then finishes up with some exercises and strategies.
This was a great read and now that I am speed reading, I should be able to stop wasting time and get more information faster.
