Learning how to speed read is a valuable skill, and this book provides a
bountiful amount of pointers. The format is a biography of Peter, a
young boy who discovers his appreciation of books and learning and wishes
to find a way he can accomplish more by becoming a better and faster reader.
In following his path, which involved his tying speed reading improvement to
other aspects of his life like athletics, readers may also help their
own speed reading cause. Among the many tips are to avoid regressing
and fixating on a word or phrase, look at key parts of a sentence to
digest its meaning, and have a clear-cut purpose in reading a particular
book or book chapter. The need to practice is emphasized along with noting
how speed reading can vary according to the complexity of the material. The book discusses the utility of using a pacer, such as a pencil or pen or even your fingers,
to help the eyes follow the words. Several drills can help readers
work on speed and comprehension, and there’s also an exercise to expand
peripheral vision. A summary of points is a good touch. Providing
comments from educators and various luminaries would greatly enhance the
book. The material is written for readers of any age, though younger readers would
seem to be the major audience, with the biographical elements. The title is expressive,
and the cover design aptly conveys the book’s basic message.
