Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.
Speed reading uses methods such as chunking, scanning, reducing subvocalization, and using meta guiding. For example, reading the first sentence of each paragraph can indicate if it's worth reading more or to move on. Or guiding your eye by using your finger.
Speed reading can help you skim to content, which is useful at times. However, speed reading cannot help you read faster and retain more information.
Instead of aiming for speed, we should optimise for comprehension and retention.
