THE SPEED READING BOOK BY TONY BUZAN
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to double, triple or quadruple your reading speed? Just think what effect that would have. You could cut the amount of time it takes to achieve your current reading load by a factor of 2, 3 or 4 or, you could increase your reading volume in the same time you currently need by a factor of 2, 3 or 4. Would that make things a little easier for you?
The chances are that if you are an average reader, then your reading speed is probably in the region of 200-400 words per minute. It is possible for that to be in the region of 1000 wpm and The Speed Reading Book by Tony Buzan will show you how. In the introduction Buzan states that the The Speed Reading Book has the following six purposes:
|1. To improve your reading speed dramatically.|
|2. To maintain and improve your comprehension.|
|3. To increase your understanding of the function of your eyes and your brain, in order to help you use them far more effectively while reading and studying, and also to use them more effectively in your everyday personal and professional life.|
|4. To help you improve both your vocabulary and general knowledge.|
|5. To save you time.|
|6. To give you confidence.|
To do this Buzan explains how your eyes and brain work and through a series or exercises and tests, improve your reading speed, maintain and improve your comprehension and concentration and give a boost to your vocabulary. Overall this is a well structured and well presented book that should be compulsory for everyone who draws information from the written word …. If you are reading this, that means you. It is an excellent companion to Use Your Head , also by Tony Buzan.
