Publisher's Summary

Imagine if you were running a very old software program on a computer. It would be slow, inefficient, and cause you to waste a lot of time dealing with the outdated interface. You know how frustrating it is when this happens to you on a computer, but do we even notice when we are using old or inefficient mental skills? Think how many times you read every day. And imagine how much more time you would have if you could learn how to speed read.

If you are a student or a professional that is required to absorb new information on a daily basis, the rewards are of course, huge. But absolutely anyone can benefit by learning to update this skillset.

Mastering speed reading will allow you to save time, improve comprehension, and skyrocket your time management.

Love being a speed reader

I love and am so proud of my new identity as a speed reader! I used to take forever to get through a book or not even finish books because it took too long. Granted, audiobooks are still my prefered method, but speed reading is very enjoyable once you know how.
