One of the main reasons people read slowly is a lack of purpose and focus. Here are some questions you should ask before you start reading any book. Take a little time to answer them.
You may have some questions to add to the following list:
• Why are you reading this book?
• What makes you think you need this book?
• Is this book the best place to find what you are looking for?
• How long do you intend to spend on the book?
. When are you going to use the information you find in this book?
• What do you already know about speed reading?
• What do you expect from this book?
• How will you know when you have achieved your goal?
This book will take you through a system of reading that will give you the tools you need to be able to increase your reading rate in two important ways:
• You will read faster and remember what you read.
You will find what you need to read without always having to read an entire book.
Speed reading is about much more than reading fast; it is about reading ‘smart’. Smart reading is:
• Determining what it is that you want from any reading material.
• Reading as efficiently as possible.
• Being able to recall information when you need it.
The aim of this book is to help you master techniques that will enable you to read and absorb more information in less time than before. You should find that you spend less time reading because you manage information more quickly.
The Til get around to it’ pile will be less threatening and easier to get around to. Also, when you have learnt how to read non-fiction material faster and more efficiently, you will find that you naturally apply efficient reading techniques to your leisure reading without losing the enjoyment of a good story.
