9788183070768: How to Read Better & Faster

How To Read Better And Faster is a book that teaches reading techniques to its readers - techniques that can help them increase their reading speed and retention. This is a book that teaches readers not just how to read faster, but also techniques that can help them retain what they have read. Speed reading techniques are not just about counting how many words an individual can read in a minute. To actually read something states that it is important that the person understands what is being read. How To Read Better And Faster by Norman Lewis is based on the premise that one s reading speed is linked to concentration and retention. One cannot happen without the other. So, if a person s reading speed increases, a significant increase in his concentration and powers of retention should also be noted. The book shows readers some practical ways in which they can increase their reading speed. It contains exercises that can be practised to achieve an increase in one s reading speed. It defines goals and shows the reader different ways in which he can achieve those goals. This approach makes it easy for the reader to apply the skills taught in the book and check the results. Increasing one s reading speed can be helpful in many situations - for students who are going through a lot of study material to prepare for their exams, for business executives who have to go through a lot of notes and reports in a day, for researchers who have to go through piles of reference material, and the list goes on. The book even teaches readers how to look at a page and take in the main points, and how to build their reading vocabulary. Regardless of whether the reader just wants to scan a newspaper faster, finish a novel in a few hours, or go through huge amounts of reference material faster, this book is always useful.

About the Author:

Norman Lewis was a noted grammarian and author, and considered an expert on the English language. He has also written several bestselling books including, 30 Days To A More Powerful Vocabulary, Rapid Vocabulary Builder, Correct Spelling Made Easy, Better English, and Word Power Made Easy. Born on 30th December, 1912, in New York, he published his first article at the age of eleven, and graduated with a Master s Degree in English from Columbia University. Having begun a teaching career at City College of New York, and New York University, he taught English for more than three decades, at Rio Hondo College in California, and passed away at the age of 93, in 2006.

Review:

An average Indian reader reading English script will have a wpm of 220-280. This book will definitely take your wpm count beyond 350. The book is a methodical home trainer, with regular practice on lit pieces alongside the book will give you a 80-95% comprehension and a high reading speed in 2-3 months. I would recommend it a must to anyone who are struggling to increase their RC and its so much easy after you pick up that speed and comprehension. Now I read newspapers with so much easy and you feel good about having made that investment in the book, which has increased your speed and comprehension. --Santosh Angada.. on 01 Feb 2012

You will never have encountered a book so effective that u get overwhelmed by its positives so much that u don't have time time to find flaws in it. For anyone looking to not just increase reading speed but make himself an efficient reader this book is a boon....Go four it do not think!! --Abhishek Jaiswal on 07 May 2012

This book is like a workbook, wherein you get tips and techniques to improve your reading speed followed by exercises to practice these techniques. You also get to keep measuring your reading speed regularly, so you can definitely see for yourself whether these techniques are effective or not. If you go through this book diligently, am sure your reading speed would improve a lot in due course of time. But don't expect that without practicing diligently you will suddenly improve your reading speed just by studying about the techniques-that would be like thinking that you can swim just by reading about swimming! --Aravind on 20 Jul 2014
