I have bought this book already a year ago but never started to read it. With my newly awaken interest in speed reading it was about time to look at what it has to offer and I am glad that I did.

The book itself is very well structured, which makes it easy to look up information quickly later. It describes the different techniques that allow us to not only read faster but also to comprehend more. In that way it's similar to Remember Everything You Read: The Evelyn Wood 7-Day Speed Reading & Learn
This book was really helpful for me. I have always been one of those people who really loves reading, and yet it often takes me three or four reads of each paragraph to understand what I'm reading. Maybe I zone out mid-sentence. I don't know.

I am absolutely amazed by techniques described in this book. I have read just 20% of this book by now and I am already reading at least 5 times faster.

Super recommended books for anyone who uses reading as a tool for personal growth, professional growth or any other growth were books are key.
