Although I Use Speed Reading This Book Was Very Useful to Me
Reviewed in the United States on April 28, 2021
I guess I first picked up speed reading techniques, consciously, or unconsciously in the 7th grade and honed these skills in high school. By the time I got to college and grad school these skills were very important to me. However, I have always wanted to read as fast as possible while retaining what I had read. Peter Hollis’s work was a good refresher course, but more than that, his discussion of the value of pre-reading, and techniques to classify information, and to retain it through various techniques, such as mind maps and knowledge trees was extremely worthwhile. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their reading speed and comprehension of what they have just read.
