Why Should One Read Faster ?

Why Should One Read Faster ?

Isn't it contradictory to popular belief that books should be savoured ? Some of them should be.

But most the nonfiction ones these days are loaded with one single idea and loads of examples to fill in the pages. So to make sure to get the best of the book speed reading can be a skill incredibly useful.

You get to read more books in short period of time. Which is pretty sweet.

Try and Reduce subvocalization

if you try and Reduce speaking of what you're reading in the book, it can take your reading speed to next level because now you can just blitz through a lot of stuff.

Read the middle part

tim Ferris has talked about this idea in his video as well.

Use a pointer

Using a pointer can be particularly useful in reading physical books.

Because our eyes move in steps ( they don't move smoothly on their own ). But if eyes follow a pointer or finger while going through the book it'll turn into smoother movements and save a lot of time.

Gamify reading fast

Sometimes when reading gets boring, then you can gamify the whole experience, like let me see how must fastbcan I read this book without affecting my comprehension of the subject.

It would make the whole experience a lot of fun and interesting.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
