Having read and tried many speed books and even tried photoreading courses I was doubtful this book would actually make a difference, but I was pleasantly surprised to be dead wrong. The simple and easy to do strategies taught really work.

The heuristics the authors teach on how to change how you think from reading to processing information made a huge difference to me and I no longer need to worry or feel bad thinking "am I missing any info?" instead the way I rapidly process information has become so much more a breeze for me and I finally feel confident that I can get to answers quicker, learn faster and remember so much more. Thanks a million for a great resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed reading rocks! 24 Feb. 2011
By Marta
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a student from Poland studying business at London university. It's been
really hard getting all the reading done in foriegn language and I was a bit
worried that the spd rdng techniques won't work for me. I haven't finished
the whole book yet, but I'm already managing to get all the info I need for
my essays using something called syntopic reading and mindmapping where I
work with four books at the same time in just 75 minutes. Cool. All students
should learn this. Why don't they teach it to everyone?????

What follows is a warning for rational people. TL;DR - this book's few original techniques rely on a lot of unfounded claims.

- Title/premise
Pat on the back to the marketing department for using a concrete number in the title with '37 strategies'. Might have been a good idea to make sure that a majority of those were usable, though, so as not to disappoint readers. And of those usable strategies, could have been a good idea for the authors to include a range of original ones. I find it hard to say that there really were 37 strategies, original or otherwise, in the book.

- Actual factual content
The Wikipedia article on speed reading contains more information, I'm afraid. This book is padded out beyond belief, which is odd, given that the whole idea of the 'spd rding' course is to ignore fluff and seek 'information hotspots'.

- Concepts
The only concepts that seemed applicable to reading at speed with any level of real comprehension were those you'd find in any speed reading overview.

Other concepts were suspect, such as the 'download method' which takes up a large part of the book. With this you 'download' a book to your brain by looking at a page a second. Apparently you aren't allowed to let anyone test your comprehension though, rather you should rely on the information coming to you when you need it. There is a warning not to use this method alone, but to combine it with actual reading... what more needs saying.

The methods appear increasingly less credible as the authors go on to use pseudo-scientific concepts and an impressive array of logical fallacies in their reasoning.

One of the key ideas to speed reading as put forward in the book is not to read the books you don't need to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed reading is a time saver. 3 Aug. 2011
By saki
Format:Kindle Edition
Before I've read this speed reading bible I was reading at 210 words per
minute. After just a few days of applying only some of the techniques (there
are 37 techniques in total), I was reading at 600-800 wpm with higher
comprehension. And what's more the amount of the reading done was at least
10 times more than before. I'm saving so much time now (and money). It's
unbelievable. And English is not my first language.

The great thing about all the speed reading techniques is that you don't
have to practice them - as the authors rightly put: you just need to put
them into practice! They make it all so easy and it is. The techniques are
so well explained and you gain immediate confidence as you become a speed
reader.

Highly recommended! It's my best investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed reading's great - even for good readers 13 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I considered myself a good reader before looking at this book, but I was fascinated by the things I hadn't thought about in relation to reading, and I also managed to pick up all sorts of hints that I can use. So yes, I'd recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accelerate your learning 2 May 2013
By Flux
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it's very easy to be skeptical and negative - dismissing everything that doesn't slot in with our experiences, paradigms and the 'norm' and label it as quackery.

however I personally believe we create, filter and live the reality we choose.
Life, books, learning have the meaning we choose to attach to it and contain the essence we squeeze and can soak up from it
- i feel our perceptions are based on and sculptured by our beliefs, conditioning, upbringing, environment, culture, (genes?) etc.

personally i suspend my dis-belief when i read information that may be out of the ordinary, then i test out the hypotheses,
if it rings true and resonates with my gut i go with it and don't look back.

it's easy to get negative, 'over-realistic', over 'anal-ysing' but then life can bring some of us down.

I may not agree with everything I read but sometimes one or two lines or useful techniques are worth more than tenfold the price of a book...

I agree quick fixes and short cut's don't always work but when work / home life is hectic and there is little time for reading or doing other things we enjoy then in my humble opinion some techniques, and tips are definitely worth a shot!
