The book's title says read a book a day but the first chapter begins by stating it's "biologically impossible" to read fast and goes into a long discussion about the reason.
The next chapter doesn't discuss reading but everything you should do to prepare for reading. This chapter makes up 40% of the book, but has nothing to do with actually reading, only systems like SQR3 or 4P's on how to start reading.
The next chapter finally gets to the "meat and bones" as Peter calls it to actually increase the speed of reading, but is only three outdated tips sub-vocalization, word-chunking, and skimming. He himself admits subvocalization doesn't always work and he he barely gives any instruction on word-chunking, only a link to another resource.
The last chapter is suppose to offer tips on improving comprehension but mainly covers eye fitness and not comprehension. Then he spends four paragraphs recommending someone else's book David Butler's Speed Reading with the Right Brain, which is terrible.
There are some tips on retention but there are very simple like take notes, summarize, and use mind maps.
Very little of this short book with a lot of summaries is on speed reading with the author not convinced that it is even possible, which explains why he doesn't give direct tips to increasing reading, only padded fillers.
I would not recommend it, definitely skip this book.
Skimming and scanning is helpful, and this book helps you strategize and read by concepts. Awesome and empowering! Recommended to everybody
** Comments on book material: good collection of practical tips on speed reading. Yes there are some repeated parts and fillers but generally it's good material to start explore this skill.
** Comments on eBook formating: it's very bad! No table of contents (in Kindle menu) or even worse there is no titles/headings/subheading! All the texts is the same format which made it a chunk of text! It's one of the worst reading experience that I had! Ironically it's about speed reading and the format it totally against that! Especially what mentioned in Ch2: Pre-Reading.
