    How To Read Better And Faster teaches a variety of effective techniques for improving reading speed, concentration, and retention.

    Summary Of The Book

    A classic book, written by the English language expert Norman Lewis, How To Read Better And Faster was used as a guide book by several top-notch universities, the Marine Corps, and U.S. Air Force to improve the reading skills and abilities of their students and trainees.

    How To Read Better And Faster imparts the skills and techniques for improving one’s reading abilities so as to get the most from the written word, be it books, newspapers, texts, or magazines. The book is based on the idea that in order to read better, one must have enhanced levels of both, retention, and concentration. Effective speed reading involves not just the number of words an individual can read per minute, but rather, focuses on how many words are understood clearly.

    With this in mind, the author presents effective tools and techniques for improving powers of retention, and reading speed, guiding readers on how to better their concentration on the reading material at hand, build on their word vocabulary, quickly scan a page and grasp its main ideas, build efficiency, and save time while sifting through volumes of bulky reading material.

    Practical in approach, How To Read Better And Faster lays out its goals and then presents the ways in which these can be achieved. It suggests many ways for speed reading, offering relevant exercises, designed to increase reading speed. This methodology allows readers to apply the skills learnt, and test themselves through practise.

    Divided into 14 chapters, the book includes topics such as, How To Read with Aggressive Comprehension, How To Skim, and How To Read With A Questioning Mind. A highly useful book, How To Read Better And Faster helps people from all walks of life, to improve their reading skills, including students required to leaf through pages of detailed study material during exam preparation, business professionals who do a lot of report-reading everyday, and those in research, who have to read and analyse large volumes of reference data.

    College Student Must Read this or similar Book

    My review is not 100% based on this book as when I read this book I did not checked other books. But I can say that this book is very famous for speed reading. You may find little difficulty in reading few names given then in text as those not Indian names and you may think that those names are eating your time in faster reading but it is ok. When you read your technical book or any new subject you may find the same situation.


    Now about the subject - Speed Reading - for which I have writte...

    Pretty good

    Technique used in this book to teach and practice us is by reading more and more with skimming, stoping sub vocalisations in latter chapters and expanding visualisation which is way tough to do in practice life. So even if you finish this book there is no guarantee to increase reading your reading speed more then 500wpm with 90% comprehension. For more details pls watch Unaccadmey Video of Dr. Roman Saini of how to read better n faster well explained how to use this book available on you tube...

    Such A Good Book

    This is a book that you would not like to be slipped away.
    it has so many features that you will never know unless you have it.
    But some of its feature are as follows...

    1. Enjoyable.
    2. Effective.
    3. Easy to follow.

    Following this book is like a journey which you took as a pleasure but the results at end ( i would say just after some days) is life changer. You can never be the same , of course in a positive way. So go for it and dont look back....
