Speed Reading

So i noticed that many users of this site are avid readers, and i figured you guys might appreciate this. It helps me zip through my homework. The only drawback is you can only use it for electronic texts.
This is a link to a website that will help you become a better reader.

That’s website is awesome! What better way to increase your capability to learn than to maximize the speed at which you can take in knowledge.

I have the course, just haven’t gotten around to going through it.


It’s legit, it comes with CD’s and various exercises that help you identify you subconscious power and then harness it allowing you to read entire books in mere minutes!

I am an avid reader and read mostly for pleasure. While I believe speed reading is useful for school etc., pleasure reading should be done slowly so that words and thoughts can be absorbed fully and properly.

For some odd reason I have always been able to read fast, and in some sortof way i seem to have fotographic memory, allready in school, i never studied, just read through the books, I am an engineer now working in the automotive industry, and still with studying is works the same, i am now finishing my Masters in International Bus. Man. Just because i was bored, done it in 20 months, writing dissertation at the moment and will graduate in may ;) Ast to the difference in pleasure reading i do notice that when i am reading for pleasure, or reading non scientific articles i slow down a bit, and tend to focus on different things. I will see if i can come up with some kind of Theory .

When I started what I assumed to be speed reading when I was in college, I suddenly had dyslexic tendencies, like interchanging letters or words.
I still have this slight dyslexia :( So at times, I tend to read slowly.
