Publisher's Summary

Thinking about learning to speed read? 

But still not sure it’ll help you? 

Or maybe you're still not convinced that reading faster is even possible?

If this sounds all too familiar, then maybe this might just be the audiobook for you.

So by now you’ve probably already looked around and come across lots of different advice and information, which has left you a little confused as where to start.

Unlike many audiobooks and expensive online programs that often promise unrealistic results like how to double your reading speed in just one hour, this guide will give you the most effective approach in how to gradually build your reading speed step-by-step.

Which means you can get on your way to learning how to read faster without wasting anymore time or a ton of money!

Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover:

  • How to take in more whilst reading less
  • Think reading faster is impossible? We’ll show you why it isn’t
  • Learn to read faster with practical effective techniques that can be used in everyday reading
  • The real truth about speed reading programs
  •  Get to know your starting point and how to achieve realistic goals
  • Crucial exercises that you will need to minimize eye movement
  • The biggest mistakes newbies make when learning to speed read
  • Why people such as President John F Kennedy encouraged people to learn to speed read
  • Proven studies that show that speed reading isn’t just an over-hyped farce
  • The key factors people will often forget to tell you when it comes to comprehension and subvocalization
  • An easy method to calculate your reading speed
  • What you need to know when it comes to using online tools for help
  • The many other benefits you’ll gain through speed reading that often get overlooked or forgotten

And much, much, more!

Take a second to imagine being able to read two or three times faster than you can now, and your visualization to memory skills becoming a lot more sharper as a by-product of this.

How much of an impact would this have on your life? Can you really tell yourself you wouldn’t benefit from this at all?

Even if you're the slowest reader in the world, or just struggle with reading in general, yet you really want to try, pull yourself out of that comfort zone and learn to speed read today.

What is up with all these reviews?

Why do they say all these amazing things when the book is terrible and why were all the reviews posted on the same day

100+ Reviews but none real

Where did all these reviews come from, who posted them, because it is not deserving of a single one.

Useless, rehashed, common sense, uninteresting advice!!!

Basic. And ends with a nearly 30min "preview" (or as) for another book

There are better books on speed reading out there. This one outlines techniques but often feels like it's contradicting itself. The icing was the 30 min advert for another book from the author.

Guide To Speedreading For Those New To It

I was asked to review this audiobook, and given the credit to purchase it. However, all opinions are my own. I was not paid to review this.

This audiobook is a guide to learn how to speedread. I'm not new to speedreading, and sometimes speedread short stories, just to pass the time away, but when given the opportunity to listen to this, I thought it would be interesting to hear the advice the book's author gives on the matter.

Personally, this audiobook wasn't useful to me, due to having already developed my own methids of speedreading, but if you haven't developed your own methods, thus could be beneficial to you. I have plans to introduce it to family members that struggle to read at a nornal speed anyway, with the hopes that following the techniques in this audiobook will allow them to improve their reading speed.

if you are interested in learning to speedread, I 100% recommend this book to you.

Clear and Concise.

A very interesting and informative audiobook. I read a lot and thought I was a reasonable fast reader but this has opened up a whole new level of reading for me. The writing has just the right technical depth with a clear narrator at just the right pace. I consider this a must listen if you want to improve your reading speed without loosing comprehension.
