Definitelly worth the price and the time it took

I love audible because I seldom have time to sit down and read a book, but when I do have time to read I want to make the most of it. I treated this book differently than most I listen to. I sat at my desk with the provided printout and "went to school". The book has lots of activities it asks you to do. By the end of this short book I did improve my speed, but more than that I learned what things I need to keep improving if I want to read significantly faster. I believe this book was a very good investment of my time.

- Brock "So much to learn, and so little time to sit down and read. Thanks Audible."

Fast, Easy, Effective!

What did you love best about Speed Reading for Success?

At first I questioned if I wanted to use one of my credits on a book that was just over an hour, but this program is so efficient that that is all it takes.

I am dyslexic and have ADD bad. I was reading below the average rate yet my hunger for knowledge desperately wanted me to learn to speed read. I love to read dispute my disability. I do a little each week and now I am reading at a rate twice as fast as the average and retaining so much more.

What about Jane Smith’s performance did you like?

Jane is very clear. I read another book on speed reading a long time ago. It didn't work. It was really just skimming the book.

Jane and her husband are there for you. They are sweet and answered my questions by email.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I learned that I can pick up more meaning of what I am reading without even reading every word.

Any additional comments?

I also recommend the memory success book by Jane.
