The Speed Reading Book – Book Review


The exercises force you to engage. I discovered that my normal reading speed is 265 words per minute with 66% comprehension. I had managed to reach 800 WPM by end of the book. 

I first read this during school days. I learnt to skim faster with this book. Most importantly, this book broke the limits of speed reading for me. Reading at 1000 wpm with high comprehension is truly possible. 

Book dwells on function of eyes and your brain and its impact on reading. The techniques suggested are mostly around it. 

This along with some Edward De Bono stuff should de facto be covered at school level.
