This is a great book, and because it explains so many different options for teaching yourself to Speed read, you'll find yourself trying different things out as you read it. I was really getting the hang of it by the end, so now I'm going back to do some of the speed tests and see how fast I can get. Really good.

Although I consider myself to be a fast reader, I learned a few things from this book. Do you want to read faster and retain more of what you read? With this book, you can teach yourself to speed read. All it takes is a little practice. The book states that this skill is easier to learn when you are younger. For maximum reading comprehension, you need proper lighting, lots of rest, and no distractions like the television or music.

I highly recommend this well written guide to anyone who wants to improve their reading skills. It is an awesome guide for college students or anyone who reads for business or pleasure.

I'm a notoriously slow reader among my friends, so it was time for me to change that and adopt a few techniques to increase my reading speed. This book did it for me. I read a lot of personal development books, a wide field with ever more to learn. Now I'm reading probably twice as fast, increasing my productivity along with it. My thanks go out to Dave Ball for this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars No nonsense guide to Speed Reading 23 Feb. 2014
By Adrian L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I find this short and concise guide to Speed Reading practical and easy to follow. It goes straight to the point (although some may argue it's a bit short) without any unnecessary theories. I was reminded again that speed reading is skill that requires practice - the more one practices, the better one becomes. The Daily Exercises (Chap 7) and the Retention (chap 4) are very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take Action with Your Speed Reading Techniques! 23 Feb. 2014
By Cathy Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Speed Reading Techniques is a quality guide to help you learn and utilize practical speed reading strategies! The writing is smooth and engaging and most importantly the author gives you the "know how" to improve your reading speed and retention!
I personally liked the tip to learn in smaller amounts for better recall-Makes sense!
I do wish the book was a bit longer but that's just me. Doesn't take away from the useful information this book delivers. My recommendation is you grab it and let the author know what you've gained! Great job!

This book has some great tips to help you with improving your speed and comprehension.
I had a very short speed reading lesson in high school, but have forgotten a lot of the techniques. This book has reminded me of lessons I learned long ago and has inspired me to start my exercises again to improve my reading. Thanks Dave, great info.

1.0 out of 5 stars May be good info but... 10 Mar. 2014
By Dreamy's Professor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Mr. Ball might have some good info and tips in his book--but unless the mess of a sample is cleaned up not many readers will know it. I'm talking about the "try a sample" portion because based on that, this is not a book I'll be paying any money for. I have to assume if the intro is riddled with errors, the rest of it is too.

You need an editor my friend.

Random capitalization, no capitalization where there should be capitalized letters, and an addiction to exclamation points makes for an incredibly irritating "read". It's difficult enough to get and keep readers (there's SO much good competition) why risk losing them forever with such sloppy work?
