    One thought on “Speed Reading in a Week: Teach Yourself”

    1. I love to read and always have a book on the go. I wondered how speed reading worked so I thought this would be an interesting book.The book is broken up into seven chapters/days:* Sunday - The five-step system* Monday - Speed reading (this is the chapter where you actually learn how)* Tuesday - Remember what you read* Wednesday - Your eyes and effective reading* Thursday - Distractions and solutions* Friday - Reading different types of material for different reasons* Saturday - What next?Rather [...]

    2. Use a pacer. learn about peripheral vision when reading. I've seen those two lessons better delivered from a blog post here and there. Not sure this book was for me. Not even sure it needed to be a book.

    3. I felt somewhat cheated by this book. I bought this several years ago as I had an interest in the skill of speed reading. Frustratingly, the book dances round the subject for ages, going on about understanding what any piece of text is about, ensuring you are reading the right parts etc etc. etc. Yes! Yes! I cry, but get on with it - tell me how to actually speed read. Eventually we get there and it is basically a couple of paragraphs. Then it tells you to practice. Genius. I still can't speed r [...]

    4. This book takes a different turn than the other speed reading books I've read in the past: weekly routine. It starts with Sunday through Saturday, while practicing and teaching you the steps to speed reading and comprehension tactics that are more effective for the reader. The five steps:1. Prepare2. Preview3. Passive Reading (which most of us do)4. Active Reading5. Selective reading (which I have to learn with reading law material)There involves highlight and eliminating: what is sufficient and [...]

    5. A very quick read (excuse the pun) with a lot of tips and approaches to increasing speed and dealing with the key aspects of memory: acquisition, retention, retrieval and concentration. The book is structured to be read once a day for seven days. Each day focuses on various aspects of reading such as how to speed read, how to remember, what role your eyes play in effective reading, how to read different types of material and why. Although I have completed a course and have read other books on sp [...]

    6. This is a decent intro to speed reading paced over a 7 day period. If you've never taken a speed reading course then this book is a good start. If you've taken a speed reading course previously or have read another speed reading book you probably won't learn anything new. My biggest take away from this book is actually found in the first paragraph The key to effective speed reading is deciding what you should or shouldn't even read in the first place.

    7. Good intro to speed reading techniques. The 5 step system requires practice for 21 days as stated in the book. I recommend it to anyone who has a desire to improve their reading comprehension, speed and productivity!

    8. Had some practical points which are helpful such as learning to read the middle of the sentence, paragraph, page. Plus she includes help in determining if you should read the material or just skim or skip reading it altogether.
