The Speed Reading Course
This eBook The Speed Reading Course, is a full course which will teach you how to SPEED READ (or POWER READ). Read quickly AND in-depth.
Learn how to read both quickly and in depth over a wide range of subjects, and then to be able to appreciate, analyze and evaluate what you have read with clear and incisive intelligence. With this new home study course you can double your reading speed and supercharge your brain's capacity to digest, remember and implement huge amounts of information... essential ingredients to success in your profession and in your continuing education.
We all learn to read at school, after a fashion. But for most of us, this is not an optimal use of our brain power. In this course you will learn to better use the left brain's focused attention combined with the right brain's peripheral attention, in close harmony. Good communication between the brain hemispheres is a prerequisite for creative thinking and also a sense of well-being, where thoughts and feelings are integrated.
Reading may be defined as an individual's total inter-relationship with symbolic information. Reading is a communication process requiring a series of skills. As such reading is a thinking process rather than an exercise in eye movements. Effective reading requires a logical sequence of thought patterns, and these patterns require practice to set them into the mind.
The methods currently used in schools do not touch on the issues of speed, comprehension and critical analysis and indeed all those skills which can be described as advanced reading techniques. In short, most of your reading problems have not been dealt with during your initial education. By using appropriate techniques, the limitations of early education can be overcome and reading ability improved by 500% or more. As you probably expect, this course will teach you to read much faster and at the same time to have a much better understanding of what you have read. These are obviously great advantages.
This speed reading course will give you both the understanding of the mechanisms as well as the tools (the use of the regulator, for example) to determine at which level of speed and comprehension you chose to read.

There is another major benefit. Most of us, as we read, 'speak' the words in our heads. It is this subvocalisation that holds back fast reading and it is unnecessary. It is possible to have an inner speech, a kind of 'thought awareness,' that isn't linked to the tongue, mouth and vocal chord muscles, and this is much faster and more fluent. Cutting out the identification of vocalization and the stream of thought gives a surprising by-product.
Many of us think that our constant subvocalized 'speaking voice' is who we are. Finding out that you can think and be aware without a vocal stream of words, opens up your consciousness to the usually unrecognized domain of intuition and higher consciousness. You'll have a better sense of who you really are. The course teaches in-depth reading techniques that greatly improve literary intelligence, so that you can clearly perceive the ideas and values that the writer is expressing and relate them to those of other authors and so be better able to make objective conclusions.
