Publisher's Summary

Read Faster, Comprehend More, and Increase Productivity through Speed Reading
Speed reading is a unique and interesting pursuit that ties together two seemingly disparate groups of people. Do you see yourself in one of the following descriptions?
(1) You want to learn to speed read because you generally don't like reading and want to spend as little time on it as possible. You feel that if you read more, then you'd have an easier time keeping up with people in social and business environments. You want to be able to have an intelligent opinion on current events, pop culture, what have you. Again, you're really not thrilled about reading. It doesn't intrinsically interest you, but you recognize reading as a crucial gateway to knowledge.
(2) You want to learn to speed read because you've got an insatiable hunger for knowledge. You love to read, and you want to read more, and faster, and with greater levels of comprehension. The world is bursting at the seams with knowledge that's yours for the taking, and even though you can't feasibly read all the books in the known universe, you're going to come damn close. You don't just want to be a proficient participant in the watercooler chat; you want to be known as the office's mother-freaking oracle!
And yes, it's possible that you lie somewhere between these two extremes, but odds are you're more in line with one or the other.
Rather than have two separate books for each of these two demographics, this book heals the divide by focusing in on the most universally acknowledged and respected approaches to reading faster and comprehending more.

Finally get to learn speed reading!

I've been wanting to learn how to speed read since I was in middle school. Finally listening to this book I have the understanding needed to beginning practicing how to do so. It is written in a simple, easy to understand way, and the narrator does a beautiful job of getting the points across. His voice is pleasant and fluid, although a bit on the slower side. I found myself listening to this book at 1.5x speed which I feel is perfect. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my fair and honest review. Nobody likes to be suckered, and everyone deserves to find trustworthy reviews, so I've attempted exactly that. If you found this review helpful, please let Amazon (and myself!) know by clicking 'yes' underneath this review. (ô¿ô)
