Copied and rehashed

There is nothing new contrary to the claims made in the description and by the super star reviews. Everything here is copied from other books and author. There is not one novel advice.

After further examination all the reviews here are completely fake. They are all posted by a network that posts reviews for hire. Chevk for your self, click on the reviewers name and you will see all of them posted reviews for the same set of books.

Where is the research?

The book claims heavy research was involved, research ensinuates new and cutting edge but nothing in this is new or even good. It's just simple common sense and what isn't common semse was copied from others!

Could have been a one-page magazine article

There were four interesting points one should follow in order to read faster with better comprehension. These four points were repeated ad nauseam. The reader was enthusiastic and clear. The points made were valid and helpful. The book was 3 1/2 hours too long.

Nothing interesting

Same stuff I heard in grade school.

Word to the wise, take all the positive reviews with a grain of salt, very much not real.

Evelyn Wood Speed Reading classes couldn't

Many years ago, I tried Speed Reading. I purchased a course that had a handheld device which could flash whole phrases at a time at varying speeds which you could select. Later on, I enrolled in Evelyn Wood's speed reading classes and did the exercises.

Worthy one

I was scanning for a decent basic manual for Speed Reading. The Narrated separates steps needed achievement and comprehend speed perusing without exhausting you half to death. Pursue the means and practice. With training, anybody can have achievement.

Great basic tips.

It is more than merely a reiterate of the basics. There were a few new pointers too -- at least for me.
