Begin Speed Reading Right Now

For my entire life, I’ve considered myself a slow reader. In school, I had to put in long hours to keep up with the material we were expected to read. After formal schooling, I became interested in personal development and could never seem to keep up with the new books I was hearing about.

Finally one day I came across an article about speed reading. I’d never put much faith in it since my earliest memories growing up involved infomercials that showed people flipping through pages as fast as they could see them. I never believed I could be taught to read that fast. Click Here to Read Article …

Should Speed Reading Techniques Be Taught in School?

I picked up a teach yourself book at a friend’s today about speed reading.  It states that with speed reading one can maximize their time and improve their reading efficiency.  I’ve never met people who speed read but it seems like such a good idea. If we all could speed read we would be able to go through all of the information we go through every day much more quickly, allowing more time for our work.  It leaves me wondering why speed reading isn’t taught in school as a skill – along with algebra shortcuts and writing short hand.
