Good book, but not so good on audible

there are sentence and paragraph you need to read as part of the practice, Therefore a book will also be required

Interesting book....

helpful guide

I chose this book because I want to read more and reading faster seemed the most logical step towards this goal. Ironically this is probably the fastest I've ever read a book. The information is insightful and immediately useful. I used the techniques from the book while reading it. "You get what you pay for, and sometimes... You get more."

70% junk and filler content

Most of content is random opinions, no scientific citations. a good 20% of book seems to be trying really hard to sell tou on how wonderful speed reading is.

Overall quality of content is similar random opinions of replying posters to a reddit post by a teenager on the internet.

The book is cheap, yet still not worth it.

more knowledgable book

it was again reminded of the importance of utilizing the ability to listen and comprehend in our fast paced world. This makes coping with both positive and negative changes more able to be incorporated into our knowledge base. I definitely recommend it .

AWESOME BOOK AND VERY INFORMATIVE

This book provides an introduction to speed reading and although it will help this should only be considered as the starting point.. It's a good book to start and practice and apply the tools for the entrance exams.. Hopefully the tools mentioned here could favor me in scoring good score for the reading part of the DAT.Very good for beginner like me who wants to improve on listening skills. Clear definition and actionable recommendations and action points.

excellent guide

This is a very well book book that I will recommend to everybody. I have learned more about speed reading .

If you want to learn how to speed read than this book is for you. I love this book and will probably read it again a couple of more times just to solidify the information in my brain. It also doesn't hurt to find a speed reading freeware to help you with your speed and learning how to use your eyes to move over the page and not move you head from side to side. I will recommend to everybody
