Description

If you read the book in order, you will effectively be following our two-day workshop, but many of the techniques, insights and suggestions are self-standing and can improve your reading, comprehension, memory and retention so feel free to read them in the order which makes most sense to you (there’s a lot of cross-referencing in case you need to check out something which has been presented earlier). But however you approach the book, we strongly suggest that you actually try things out as you go. As we say in the book, reading is just the first step; it’s only useful if you put the information into practice.If you haven’t got time to read the whole book at the moment, then the techniques which will make the biggest immediate difference to your reading are:1) Apply skills you already have 2) Preview3) Don’t think reading, think finding information4) Have a clear purpose for reading5) Apply the 80/20 rule to your reading6) Read the message not the words14) Get into a good state for reading17) Take notes with mindmaps and rhizomaps18) Have 20-minute work sessionsPlus the Underlining techniqueWe’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to pick up and review the ideas:1) the titles of the techniques are self-explanatory2) each of the techniques is summarised in bold at the beginning of its section3) there is an extensive and helpful glossary4) we give examples of people’s actual experience – including our own5) there are ‘expert tips’ throughout which will also help youEXPERT TIP number one: While you’re learning, use well-written books you can understand easily – it will give you confidence in your new approach to reading. Once you’ve mastered all the techniques, you will be able to apply them to any written material – including books, journals, reports and articles, both on- and off-line.CONTENTSIntroduction - and how to use this bookDouble your reading speed – right nowChecklist – where are you now?What is your current reading speed?What do you want from your improved reading?THE SPD RDNG TECHNIQUES>1 Apply skills you already have>2 Preview before you start reading>3 Don’t think ‘reading’, think ‘finding information’>4 Have a clear purpose for reading>5 Apply the 80/20 rule to your purpose >6 Read the message, not the words>7 Smile – enjoy what you’re reading>8 Take fewer ‘stops’ per line>9 Open your peripheral vision>10 Take your awareness to your concentration point>11 Focus on ‘hot spots’ of key information>12 Read for sameness and difference >13 Speed up your brain with ‘super-duper-reading’>14 Get in a good state for reading>15 Use speed-reading eye patterns>16 Remember by doing something>17 Take notes with mindmaps and rhizomaps>18 Have 20-minute work sessions>19 Talk about what you read>20 Review information regularly>21 Read different texts at different speeds>22 Use ‘syntopic processing’ to work with several books>23 Set timeframes and stick to them>24 ‘Rapid read’ from cover to cover>25 Get the overview before the details>26 Rd sumrys>27 Take frequent breaks>28 Download the book into your non-conscious mind>29 Download books for ‘direct learning’>30 Read a book three or more times>31 Trust the process>32 Use different techniques with different materials>33 Ensure that physical factors are in your favour >34 Set high expectations>35 Celebrate success>36 Read more>37 Read beginnings and endingsIf you find a better way … use itChildren’s readingDyslexiaExercises for eyes‘Fizzical’ challengesGlossaryAcknowledgmentsAbout the authorsResources

    Genius! This book has been so useful to me, it has increased the speed at which I read which allows me to enjoy my novels more and also study for my university degree more effectively. Definitely a useful and worthwhile thing to take the time out to read.
  • Speed reading's great – even for good readers

    I considered myself a good reader before looking at this book, but I was fascinated by the things I hadn't thought about in relation to reading, and I also managed to pick up all sorts of hints that I can use. So yes, I'd recommend it to anyone.
  • The most straight forward and easiest way to really learn to process info many many times faster

    Having read and tried many speed books and even tried photoreading courses I was doubtful this book would actually make a difference, but I was pleasantly surprised to be dead wrong. The simple and easy to do strategies taught really work. The heuristics the authors teach on how to change how you think from reading to processing information made a huge difference to me and I no longer need to worry or feel bad thinking "am I missing any info?" instead the way I rapidly process information has become so much more a breeze for me and I finally feel confident that I can get to answers quicker, learn faster and remember so much more. Thanks a million for a great resource!
  • It really delivers

    I read all the review before I purchased this book. I must say that I was very sceptical to start off with but am most pleasantly surprised. I found the book very well set out and easy to use as it is presented in manageable chunks. Furthermore, it is an enjoyable read and unlike other books of this ilk actually gives you tips that improve your reading speed immediately. If you are impatient like myself and want something that works quickly without the need for months of working through exercises try this. I have amazingly tripled my reading speed since buying this book. My thanks go to the authors.

    This book on speed reading was recommended by a friend and it become my first aid guide for my study (I'm a law student). It's full of very useful information, mixed with great exercises which everybody can apply in their reading or studying. Not only the exercises are easy to do but also quite relaxing and motivating (my 10 years old niece's finding them funny too). After reading this book I took the next step forward and went for the two-day course run by those two amazing and charismatic authors. I'm a teacher myself and I'm full of admiration for their skills of transferring their knowledge and wisdom. I'm recommending this book to all my friends and family. This speed reading book has changed my life. Thank you Susan and Jan for the vital skills that will stay with me for ever.
