I'm an avid reader always seeking to increase the speed with which I can finish books.

This magnifier comes in very handy for reading little print, or a map. As I'm getting older my eyesight isn't as amazing as it used to be, so this was the excellent magnifier for me. The 20x magnification is just right.
Quality of the magnifier appears good, lens clarity is good, the unit is a bit heavier than anticipated. A small on the massive side for a "pocket magnifier".
I had to buy this for a class I'm taking and I really feel the info contained is valuable for every reading teacher. However, I did not need and cannot use the REVEL CD information, so before you buy this one, you might wish to see if you need or will use the digital portion. If not, buy used. It's got to be less expensive!
Clearly written and presented (not common for kindle nonfiction these days), this is a brief but well done book on the topic of speed reading. The author starts off explaining how speed reading came about and offering its benefits. The chapter on how the brain works was fascinating (one of the reasons speed reading is possible). And of course, the author suggests exercises and practices for developing speed reading. And especially helpful is the chapter on putting your fresh skills to work, which makes this speed reading thing immensely practical. Each chapter ends with a recap—very helpful, and there is the occasional bit of humor tossed in too. This book delivers on the topic of speed reading. I'm happy to recommend it.
If you are a student or in a job that requires a lot of reading, this is an perfect book to enhance your skills in this crucial 21st century survival t so long ago, midway through reading through my friends’ social media updates, in stark contrast to the a lot of problems I had with reading through books for my studies, I realised that reading and reading are two various things nowadays, and thats when I started to look to improve my reading you read as in, short social media posts with half-structured sentences, or do you READ, as in, diving into the text and reflecting on its meaning and message? This book helped me improving my reading and comprehension skills.Had I read this while in my early semesters, it would have saved me a lot of time. Im almost done with college now but satisfied that I went through with the methods in this book. It helps a lot during my part time office job, and I do feel the difference between myself and some of the other coworkers in terms of speed and comprehension with technical e book is short which is a amazing thing, as it covers all necessary aspects, yet doesnt dive too deep into theory (there is a short theory part in it about brain anatomy and how it is similar to reading, but it is a fast read)Im glad that I read it, very applicable.

This is really a amazing book to support me read some things so quick.
Sometimes, we need the ability to speed-read because it's either we are trying to meet a deadline or we would like to decide on something about what we're reading about ASAP. This is actually a amazing book to obtain hints on how to do that and I myself will apply. Think about those long contracts that I can just speed-read, I think I'll be able to sign lots of contracts with this.

Books are part of the puzzle, so being able to absorb as much info as possible within a time constraint, this short yet effective read teaches you how to obtain it done. Thank you Joachim for sharing valuable and awesome insight on how to speed read, but also on how to understand what was read. Don't be skeptical and please, create yourself a valuable investment.
This is a book quite informative with regard to the problem of learning and understanding (in reading and writing) ey use a amazing bibliographical documentation to explain the concepts similar to the learning process and concentration; then they advance to techniques and methodologies that can be applied to improve our tractor speed and ability to learn.
This book has a lot of detail about reading, and speed reading in particular; in fact, I initially skipped a couple of chapters because I though that there was too much information. Once I started following the practice steps towards speed reading, I noticed that I was actually reading faster! I then went back and read the parts I skipped and found that they actually contained a lot of useful information!
The book is a unbelievable compilation of the best atheist and non-theist literature spanning a period of over two millennia. In all this, I found the essay by Penn Jillette, beginning on p. 349, to be the most apposite as I have lived the experience he wit, p. 350. “…my imaginary mate means more to me than anything you can ever say or do.”I once had a spouse say to me that God came first, not me; that time spent with God was a higher priority in all things in put of time spent with me. What this meant in practice is that Bible study came first and was a higher priority than the emotional, psychological or even physical needs of the spouse. I found that there was no appeal to reason or emotion that I could make, nothing that I could say or do, to overcome being place in a permanent second-rate metaphysical position to a fictional being by no less than a spouse to whom I had devoted the best years of my life. This is no less than brainwashing used to overturn normal human empathy, compassion and the relationship ethic for devotion to a mistaken and misguided belief in a fictional entity. If one spouse is second to God in the mind of the other spouse, the human relationship is greatly diminished. The second-rate spouse will never be able to compete with God in the mind of infected spouse. The second put is so distant as to render the lesser spouse out of sight and out of is fictional entity has true power in the globe of causality. It is an entity, a creature from the primitive mind, so powerful as to be impervious to human reason and emotion, a malevolent, fictional yet strong entity after all. This nicely, not for me, proves the title of Christoph Hitchens’ earlier book, ‘god is not Great, How Religion Poisons Everything’ My experience shows the height of religious arrogance where religious indoctrination replaces human relationship ethics and empathy and ruins a life. What better evidence of this can be found than in the very fact that it divides spouses?The problem is that religion of any kind offers believers tools to deal with the contradictions of daily life but in reality turns believers into compulsive neurotics that internalize the contradictions rather than confronting them. By dividing the world, not just spouses, into believers and nonbelievers, they become, not self-fulfilled, but rather, self-alienated.
I read this compilation some years ago when I was battling cancer. I had become a nonbeliever long before, but this set of writings and essays helped me clarify my thinking on the matter. Even better, it gave me confidence to admit how I had felt about religion for years to others and gave me ammunition to debate believers more easily. I am glad that Hitch took on the task or choosing and editing this compendium. Obviously, some of the essays are better than others, but the whole is better than the sum of the parts for me.
What an absolute treasure trove of essential writings for those steeped in nonbelief! From Lucretius to Ibn Warraq with historical luminaries like Spinoza, Russell, Darwin, Freud, and even Lovecraft sandwiched between, this tome is definitive in it's selections, all-encompassing in it's scope, and just downright entertaining as well. The fact that Hitchens not only does the general book introduction but also the private intros to every piece makes it all the more relevant and worthwhile. Do your questioning mind a large favor and add it to your private library!
I only discovered Christopher Hitchens about 1yr ago, but since that time I have been reading his works with enthusiasm. This book is not his writings of course, but a collection of writings that he finds necessary for non-believers. Thus, how could I turn down the tip of such a journalist.I gave the book 4 stars based purely on the fact that individuals interested in discussing such subjects as religion, belief/non-belief, should, [email protected]#$%!chens suggests, be somewhat versed in the more historical writings. However, from the standpoint of reading, I found this book very challenging. I have 2 advanced degress in biology/medicine, and I'm not ashamed to say that I had to read a lot of of the passages 2 or 3x to really obtain an understanding of what the author was trying to say. I mention the degrees not as evidence of intelligence, only to establish that I have fun academic pursuits.....and this book would qualify as just that! If the subject of belief/non-belief is a passion/pursuit of yours, then this book would be valuable; however, if you are looking for some light reading in the evening, this may not be the best choice.
Well written, as is everything of Christopher Hitchens, although some points may be over emphasised. This may be because I accepted the argument of a point before it was made. The book is not just for the unbeliever it is very much for the questioning believer, if such a person exists. The breadth of the references and the depth to which they are examined is awesome and very satisfying. Of course it is possible to be left in doubt on some matters but it is likely that other work by Christopher Hitchens can resolve these problems. Books by Dawkins and Harris will be perfect companions to this and the author's other publications.
"The Portable Atheist": what a unbelievable read! It challenges, it amuses but, most of all, it has no time for the sheer and utter nonsense that is religion. And here, religion means all religions and not certain select ristopher Hitchens has compiled a thought provoking grab bag of readings from across the ages and across the planet. He begins with Lucretius and Thomas Hobbes and finishes with Sam Harris and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. In between, the reader is confronted by Tag Twain, Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell and Richard Dawkins. There are a lot of sections that I enjoyed. For example, consider the following:Mark Twain: "There was never yet a case of suffering or sorrow which God could not relieve. Does He sin, then?"Elizabeth Anderson: "To a mainstream Christian, Jew or Muslim, nothing is more obvious than that founders and prophets of other religions...are either frauds or delusional". In other words, the faithful can readily see the flaws of other faiths but never the flaws of their own.Ibn Warraq: "It is very odd that when God decides to manifest Himself, He does so only to one individual. Why can He not reveal Himself to the masses in a football stadium during the final of the Globe Cup". God sounds a bit like a UFO that is only seen by a hillbilly in the ere are a lot of more quotes but I think the reader gets the flavour. This is a book to be enjoyed by the rational and despised by the irrational and their thought police. I recommend it wholeheartedly. However, if you ever doubt the stupidity of religion just test the Sam Harris line that replaces the word God with Zeus. This shows up religion for the ridiculous farce that it is.
Atheism is a relatively fresh state of mind for me, and so far it's all good! On nearly a weekly basis fears, superstitions, anger, hopelessness, confusion, absurdity, senselessness and more fall away from me like ice sheets from a glacier. "The Portable Atheist" is helping to hasten that process and repair the cruel and vile scars of lifelong fundamentalist christianity with a fresh meaning, a fresh outlook, a sense of satisfied well being, an actual (god forbid!) enjoyment of life! I'd read another of Hitchens' books, "God is not Great," which so impressed me it created me eager to explore which free thinkers and realists he had included in his anthology "for the Nonbeliever." The book is a banquet. Just browsing through the Table of Contents, seeing who is featured, makes one eager to turn to that page and read their rationales and opinions. Most of the writing, much of it by some of my favorite authors, has been related to discovering a diamond in the mud. I've been so overwhelmed and excited to realize that a lot of literary giants were also nonbelievers, and backed their beliefs with firm, impeccably logical, startlingly rational, highly intelligent, iron-clad arguments for their mindset. And the pattern that emerges from a collection of writing about a lot of religions, which are different, yet share so a lot of of the same hateful, negative, mind-numbing qualities, is a true eye-opener, a safety net for those who may think that because their own religion sucks, another might be better. Perhaps my favorite entry is by an Elizabeth Anderson, whose chapter so succinctly and masterfully calls into question much of what I was taught throughout my life, then liberally peppers her insights with biblical citations, chapters and verses, using the very methods of the "diabolical" dispensers of "gods word" to negate and undercut the pathetic preaching of the devout. In my opinion, this book would be a major asset to any class in religion, forcing people to confront and justify the contradictions and absurdities of their religious beliefs. Furthermore, it would be just as effective for people like myself, searchers for truth and believers in science and the potential of mankind when unfettered by Bronze Age mythology.
A amazing reference for any Atheist. Especially useful for those of us who are outspoken and would like to have resources and points to touch on when speaking to those in our families and social circles who have questions, or more often than not, arguments to our choice to leave faith behind e size isn't exactly portable, but the knowledge sticks with you!
"The Portable Atheist" by Christopher Hitchens is as thick and massive as some [email protected]#$%!&chens obviously avoided giving entirely the wrong impression by calling his book "The Portable Atheist Bible," although when I saw and felt the heft of it, "Bible" is what came to my mind. Perhaps far in the future, some readers, students, and followers might want to see chapter and verse, or page and line numbers in his compilation.His "Contents" lets one search any of the 47 authors he excerpts. His "Index" is rather extensive but could use greater depth of detail within selections. I would have liked the type font to be at least 10 point, but then we're talking a really mammoth e 48th author is actually Hitchens himself. His "Introduction" is well worth the entire book, as are his brief introductions to all the pieces. Hitchens is an outstanding intellect, and has applied himself to the whole library of relevant thinkers. No one book could contain them all.Hitchens' brilliance and erudition create us hope that his illness can be overcome, and his voice and notice continue for a lot of e selections in "The Portable Atheist" cover the usual primary points:God created no holy books, tablets, or l holy books were created by man.God was never a man. No man was ever a e earth, the universe, is some 13 billion years old, not 6,000 years old.Miracles, so-called, are not any metaphysical agency operating outside the laws of nature;they are only as yet l man's issues are solved only by mutual cooperation and not divine ere is no eternal life. When a man dies, his existence is simply ere is no heaven or ernal punishment would not fit the crime or failings of man's finite therefore need not fear the earth, sun, and our galaxy are not the center of the universe,so neither is man the center of private attention of any infinite being.
I enjoyed Hitchens' book God is Not Amazing tremendously. While this volume includes some lovely material, it also is loaded with essays and excerpts that are rather less compelling. I created it all the method through the volume, but in truth was not engaged with much of it. I kept thinking, while I was reading it, that this book needs a brutal editor. However, the grand historical sweep covered in the book is worth reflecting on.
I have read a dozens of books about speed reading as it is a subject that I search interesting as a reader and a writer. This particular book is a very fast read. I think the subtitle is a small overblown; reading faster doesn't always necessarily lead to learning faster or achieving more. The author gives you a bird's-eye view of a dozens of common speed reading techniques and exercises. The ones shared are the ones typically found in books about speed reading. Interestingly, the author share one idea I don't typically see in speed reading books. He has a chapter on expanding your vocabulary as a means of improving your reading speed. The connection, of course, is not as direct as specifically working with the written page in a dozens of ways, as you do with the techniques and exercises. But as I am a word person, I like the idea of anyone expanding their vocabulary, and if it serves the purpose of helping reading speed, that's fine. Other than that, no fresh ground is really covered here, and some descriptions of what to do are too sparse for someone who is fresh to speed reading techniques and exercises. There were also problems with grammar, punctuation, and usage scattered throughout the book. I found it interesting, too, that this book seems to be a lead magnet to obtain you to buy a speed reading course, to which there is a link at the back of the book. If you are interested in speed reading but haven't done much with it, I would recommend a more detailed book than this one.I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
This is a easy read that is very appropriate for self-help. It offers explanations and speed reading techniques that are easily place to use. Since improving vocabulary improves understanding and speed, a list of common prefixes, roots, and suffixes is provided. It also provides eye exercises that can support to improve reading speed. The advance copy available to me has formatting problems that can be distracting, but do not prevent it from being useful. I rate this book three stars.I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I am always looking for fresh things to learn and I hoped this book would support me pick up some speed and comprehension in the reading area. I found a lot of helpful information. Some I have read before but some were new. I think that since the author did not write this book specifically for me but for a huge audience, some perhaps with no understanding of this topic, this book is a amazing book who is fresh to this subject or wants to add some information.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I was curious to see what this book was about. It is very interesting the various concepts of reading. How the brain processes the info it is given. There is a lot to process and read thru. It was informative with how to time yourself with words per min read, what key words to memorize to create concepts stick with you.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This was informative of the practice of speed reading. Starndard lessons can support learning concepts.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I started reading/using this book and noticed a change in my reading speed right way. I would recommend this book to anyone from a student, to a professional that needs to read for work, or a person that just enjoys reading. I would recommend you purchase the book rather than the kindle ver as you need to write and take notes in this book. I want I would have read/had this book when I was in college.
I consider myself to be a beautiful amazing reader but felt that I read slowly, which created me feel a small self conscience. I came across Abby Marks-Beale's "10 Days to Faster Reading" in a footnote of another book and decided to give it a try.I was happy with the results.On November 19th, I took the first time test. I read 240 words per min with an 80% rks-Beale provides the following chart to access your reading level:100-200 words per mins = slow reader200-300 words per min = average reader300-400 words per min = amazing reader400+ words per min = an above average readerOn November 27th (I know, not 10 days- but hey I was learning to read faster), I took the latest time test. I read 440 words per min with a 90% comprehension level. Not e techniques she teaches definitely work, but the book is really just good, not great. The use of a racing analogy through out the book was more distracting than helpful. Of course, that could be because I have no particular understanding of racing or race cars. Still, to continue the metaphor meant burying her main points deeper in the paragraph which created the book difficult to "Preview"- a technique she teaches in the book.Apart from the pacing techniques and the poor habits to be aware of there isn't much else to absorb. I liked the book and would recommend it, if for no other reason than I did increase my speed and , I just have to hold practicing and unlearning poor habits.
10 Days to Faster Reading was definitely worthwhile reading. I am not afraid to read and consider myself a fast reader. To my surprise, reading at my normal pace, I was only at 265 WPM. This is quite average. I know that I can read quick when I have to, but I never had any tactics to follow and found myself just thumbing through the pages, retaining no information.10 Days introduced me to multiple methods for reading faster, a few of which seem to work well with me: using a pacer, keywords/key phrases, and previewing. My WPM is now well over 450. And that is after only 10 days, with much improved e only drawback to this book is that it provide a huge amount of info over a relatively short time frame. I will remember what worked for me right away, but probably will not remember enough to test out some of the other techniques that take longer to learn.
This actually work. Initially I was very pessimistic about speed reading as most of the techniques located on the web will tell you to automatically skip lines or other obviously erroneous techniques. There is no substitute for actually reading everything, but there are ways to do it faster and more efficiently. These includes:1) Training your eye span and movement.2) View larger word clusters instead of single words.3) Use a pacer that works for you (this is highly individual and this book wisely include a lot of choices).4) Limit sub-vocalization (internal whispering)5) Read with a purpose.6) Vary you reading style in accordance to the materialBesides all this the book includes a multitude of tests, pointers on screen (computer) reading and lots of other useful e book is not without its limitations, the largest issue being that it is simply to ambitious; it's material on note taking and technical reading is so short and over simplified that it ends up doing more hurt than good, for people interested in this necessary topic I suggests you look to the book What Intelligent Students Know. Another and perhaps more necessary zone that lacks attention is the speed techniques themselves, although a lot of are presented only few are backed with exercises which is crucial to their development and r all it's issues the book still deserves four stars, simply because it will install confidence in you that this actually works. I went from 220 WPM to 330-350 WPM within a week, with my comprehension rate rising from 50 to 70%. However if you wish to go up to 400-600WPM, extend your mental abilities to concentrate (read) for longer intervals and obtain your comprehension rate up to 80-90%, you will have to look to more compressive (and time consuming) programs such as the one brilliantly outlined in Breakthrough Rapid Reading. For newcomers and people who just need fast improvement or motivation I will strongly recommend this amazing small book.
I found the material relevant and helpful. I've read several books on this topic through the years, and most give general ideas and hints to speed reading that are just not realistic. Amazing advise, how do I do that? I happen to be a amazing guitar player, and I can tell you how to easily play Van Halen, but can you just pick up a guitar and play? Not likely.What THIS book does very well is give you the tools to search out what type of reader YOU are. Then it gives several methods to test and practice that fits YOUR individual problems with reading pace and ere are also exercises to support train your eyes in the muscle memory required to effectively speed up your reading.I'm not a speed reading prodigy, but I have personally found with what I've read so far, that I'm blasting through technical magazines at record pace, and comprehending the material. My pile of things "TO READ" is almost gone. I can't wait to finish my everyday lessons and move on the the next level! Amazing Work.
First of all, I must be determined and secondly, there are a lot of books related to these one, these book, the price is amazing and a amazing put to start, to feel and understand but practise create excellent and very straight forward.
I've always loved reading, and I set a goal to read 50 books this year. I've always envied speed readers, and wanted to know their secret(s). I was disappointed to see this book wasn't at my library so I bought it with the intentions of finishing and donating it to my 's a amazing book that gives you several various pacing methods, a try on your reading speed/comprehension each days, and hints on how to increase both. My private favorite is pre-viewing.Everyday use the hints and tricks in this book to increase your daily reading, from email, newspapers, blogs, and of course books. What the author says is true; most of us haven't learned/improved our reading since we first learned. The book shows you how to break habits that slow you down, and adapt habits to speed you up. Highly recommend for anyone looking to obtain through that pile of reading material they've been trying to plow through.
This is going to be short and sweet, because most of this is not actually a book to read. Well, except for the beginning pages in which the author explains how and why the developed strategies came about. -- the author was an educator but, when trying to teach her own kid how to read, she discovered what so a lot of of us go through with our first child.Her adjustment to her fresh reality, though, is what sets her apart from the rest of us and is responsible for 'Learning eggs."I believe every parent would benefit by getting "Reading Eggs Box Set 1" and using it in conjunction with the references that this book is designed to.And the children? They will owe a debt of gratitude to the author, for reading is that one skill that frees a kid and begins to germinate their quest for knowledge. I saw it in both of my sons and vaguely recall that result on me as a child. Reading is a TOM LINEFive stars out of five.I am striving to produce reviews that support you search books that you want, or avoid books that you want to avoid.

I was writing the username for my small sister and I also filled the age thing out too but when I pressed check, it didn't do anything. I tried it again and I turned it off and on. But didn't work! It was so frustratrating! So I couldn't even obtain on!
Doesn't encourage reading, just says a sentence and has your kid repeat. Even if they say something totally different, the creature says yay and moves on. No parent feedback on possible speech problems like the description would lead you to believe. The parent section only pops up the TOS with no method to accept and move on. I place up with this application despite all its flaws simply because my 4yo loved the small monster. Today, after about a week of using the application daily, it has stopped working. The narrator asks Phonzy if he's ready, as usual, and then nothing happens. I can only assume it's because she's done all the sentences, but she's heartbroken that she can't "read" (using the term extremely loosely) with Phonzy any more. It should at least let them to redo if they've finished, or even tell them they've done all the lessons instead of presenting them with Phonzy standing in an empty room doing absolutely nothing! And now it looks like I'm stuck downloading one of the other apps just so she can visit her creature friend, even though I'm sure that they'll be just as lousy.
