Review on How to Read Faster

When I send your eyes and mind on "Speed Reading" it is because according to the National Center for Education Statistics, almost 50% of Americans who took part in The National Adult Literacy Survey don't know how to read well enough to find a single piece of information on a short material. Worse, they can't even make low level inferences based on the material they read.

"What's the big deal?" you may ask. Reading fast may not seem like such an impressive skill to you but it's a valuable life skill that will give you a huge edge in the real world. Whether you're taking a scholarship test or drafting a sales pitch for a prospective client, reading fast is an ability that will come handy, especially when you're trying to beat the clock to finish the exam or your speech. Reading fast lets you learn more in a shorter time. Think about this: if you could shave off 40 minutes every hour you spend reading, you can save 280 minutes a week! That's a lot of time and you can use it to be more productive - start a business, have more time for your family, for example, or sign up for classes online.

Remember, reading opens the door to opportunities. You owe it to yourself to improve your reading comprehension.

You understand that I cannot describe this quick, sophisticated speed reading system that went on to take some of the world's most powerful executives to amazing new heights. Purpose is to bring awareness to an interesting topic that might be very helpful for your daily work.

Very nice RevPage, Ulrike, it's one of those subjects that can never be obsolete, especially nowadays with everybody reading while doing everything else thanks to the mobile devices

It will still take some time until all books you need for your studies on university will be in 'kindle'-format :)

that's right, but it's only a small percentage of people who are at the university, for most, wikipedia does the job just fine, well, it does for me

...and actually I read that people (may be the generation 35+) are still preferring reading books...

I saw one person at APSense, months ago, say that she will never replace the comfort of reading a printed book for an electronic device. For a novel, I sort of agree. Even then, I find that it's becoming annoying and tiring to read a paperback when the characters are too small. I don't know about the eReaders, but with the iPad, you can grow the image in a fraction of a second. Also, I remember reading that Amazon sold more eBooks than printed ones for the first time either last year or in 2010.
