Nope, this book didn't teach me how to photoread. I managed to see the 'blip page' fine, but I wasn't able to retrieve a single work supposedly entered into my sub-conscious. Funny thing was, everything I read conventionally I do recall.
Very dissapointed with this book.

I was so very, very sceptical about the possibilities of this method, but also so very, very desperate, because I am studying probably the hardest law course that ever was - jurisprudence and legal philosophy at Masters level - that I thought I'd give it a whirl. Reading it through, I still felt, like probably many, that some of the claims it made were a tad wild. However, in accordance with my title for the review, I would have to say I seriously think it works. I haven't tried all the exercises - but I have tried the photoreading. And the one book I have tried it with - Law's Empire, by Ronald Dworkin - not an easy read by any stretch of the imagination - is a book that I now feel I know like the back of my hand. It's seriously incredible. I could have happily thrown this book (Law's Empire) out of several windows on many an occasion. But now I love it. Moreover, the other books on my course on which I haven't used the technique, it has to be said that I don't know them as well. Indeed, those books throw me into a state of panic, because I remember very little of them - these are texts that I've read (traditional method) 3 times, and rewritten in my own notes). I don't feel that with the Dworkin's book at all (which, admittedly, has also been read three times in the traditional way, with notes taken). And, moreover, I'm getting the most amazing insights, that I never expected, ever, ever, to see. I have six weeks until my exams - I will now do this process with Joseph Raz's "The morality of freedom" (not an easy read) and Herbert Hart's "Concept of Law" - and will follow this review with an update.

I actually bought the photoreading whole mind system course that cost a lot more than the book itself. It promised an experience of a photographic memory and tells success stories of this but never mentions exactly how to do this.
Some of the reading skills mentioned are useful but very basic such as you can get a lot of information on a book or article by reading its summary. He mentions that the most valuable information is contained in the 1st sentence of a paragraph, which is something you are already taught at school.
He also mentions the importance of having a SPECIFIC purpose and not to think "I want to know everything" when reading a book. Once you have a specific purpose you photoread the entire book then you activate by visiting the contents and index page to find specifically where the information is..Nothing-new there (Except the useless photoreading which is turning the books pages every second so that the information gets stored into your unconscious mind!). He told a story of a professor who gave the questions to an exam at the beginning of the course and at the end of it, everyone knew exactly what the questions are so had a specific purpose so everyone got an A grade. What utter nonsense! As if that would happen in real life!
It is like saying that doctors should know what their patients are suffering SPECIFICALLY before patients see their doctor!
...this book... teaches useful but very basic reading skills even a 12 year old knows.
I even attended a seminar by Paul Scheele, which was full of people disappointed with the photoreading course. People went away from the seminar hoping photoreading works but it didn't.
The course tries to convince you to attend live seminars and buy other products by the author's company such as paraliminal tapes that help you get to the correct state of mind for photoreading...

I have sincerely tried to believe in this technique, but it is just too new age and un-technical in its approach. You are expected to chant mantras in your head, imaging seeing the book from another angle, diverge your vision (painful with contact lenses) and then flip through pages with nil initial perception. After all this the words are supposed to float into your consious mind. The only reason I can't denounce this... is that I havn't as yet managed to jump through all the hoops described above , ironic really.

I bought the course and book 5 years ago. I keep revisiting it and have read about 50 books with it so far. However, I don't get the fantastic results claimed. As it happens I'm aware that my own mindset and attitude wasn't always 100% and sometimes I obsess and try too much at once with this stuff. The multiple pass approach does make psychological sense though I've yet to prove the photoreading part of it.
The reason I'm revisiting it is because an NLP trainer with whom I'm friends with and trust has invested the time in it and uses it a lot, he also recommends a seminar. He's got no profit to gain from my taking this up-he's my mate anyway LOL. So now, I'm going to start again with it as the technique would be useful. To anyone else thinking of taking it up-may I suggest a reliable PERSONAL recommendation if possible? Anyone can type anything on here to be fair. I suspect the truth about this course is between the useful and the fantastic claims. If so, it's worth reinvestigating.
