I must have owned this book for years. Sometimes, you see a book and you just have to buy it. Then it sits there unread for years. My 5 years old took it out of the shelf a week before I went on a vacation to San Francisco with my 9 years old. I read this book on a lark because it's an interesting title.
While waiting for my children's piano and guitar lessons, I started reading. I timed myself on all the timed practice...and believe it or not, I REALLY doubled my reading speed by chapter 2. That's less than an hour!
Tell me, how awesome is that? I'm re-reading the book again, because if I can read faster, retain more, then it will be very helpful for my LSAT (Law School Admission Test) in October 1. As usual, I am procrastinating and have barely begun to practice the test. I will do it now. Not tomorrow, now. Knock on wood and keep fingers crossed. :)
I highly recommend this book to anybody who reads and likes reading, and to anybody else who wants to read faster. I'm not at 1500 words per minute yet, but I bet I will be before the year is out.
