Beschreibung des Verlags
Everyone is more busy today than ever before, yet we need to read increasingly complex and vast material in diminishing time. Speed reading is the skill of significantly increasing your reading speed, while maintaining (and potentially enhancing) your comprehension and recall.
The average English-speaking adult reads 2 hours a day at a reading speed of 220 words per minute (books/eBooks, articles, magazines, emails, web pages, documents, etc.). If you can read only twice as fast, with same comprehension and recall, you have saved 1 hour. Easy mathematics. Speed Reading Excellence aims much higher.
Amazing Speed Readers enjoy their readings more, achieve more and have a great sense of control. They can read and absorb knowledge, experiences and facts, understand much faster than most and recall for far longer what they have read.
How can you become an Amazing Speed Reader?
The answer is simple: Train your eyes, hands and brain to effectively read, understand, store, then recall, important information that you want to remember. In a highly-competitive and fast-paced business, workforce and academia environments, speed reading is a gratifying ‘competitive advantage’.
