What is speed reading?

Speed reading offers some steps you can take to increase your reading efficiency. It’s really just simple mathematics. If you can read two or three times faster, you can get through much more material in the time available and you will become better-informed than ever. But it’s not just about knowing a great deal about a large number of subjects. Reading faster will also help to expand the capacity of your mind. Your memory will improve, you’ll be able to communicate better and you’ll feel much more confident.

The way you read at the moment is just a habit acquired over several years. Some of your approaches may be useful, but many more will be counterproductive. Learning some new, more useful reading habits and improving your reading speed will take a little time. But you will find it’s well worth the effort in the end.
