Listen - if you're reading this then you obviously have an interest in improving the speed and quality of your information intake - Buy this book - And I don't get paid for saying that. It's also got a great Mind Map and vocab section. I started at around 240 word per minute - Now I'm at 600 (after 2 weeks) and with much better recall. 1000 wpm here we come...
At this stage I am in chapter 9, but I wanted to share my progress so far, as the exercises for this chapter will probably take a few days or weeks to really sink in. Here is my progress so far with comprehension remaining at 65-80%
Self Test 1: 170 words per minute (wpm)
Self Test 2: 210 wpm
Self Test 3: 280 wpm
Self Test 4: 375 wpm
I have managed to read at 800 wpm but at that rate comprehension takes quite a dip. But it's all about practice.
If you want to increase your reading speed then this book does the job.
After reading this book, I am now able to read very quickly and have found this wonderful for the research I have recently been doing. This would have been impossible without reading the book first.
The book is a must for anyone who finds it difficult to read books or articles and it's written in a way which holds your attention.
