What The Reviews Say About The Speed Reading Book

Many readers of Tony Buzan's speed reading book have found value in its techniques and methodologies, although experiences vary. One reviewer pointed out that while the book neatly compiles various speed reading techniques, much of the information can also be found for free online. Additionally, the book provides the tools and techniques to read faster. But to master them requires rigorous and at times challenging practice. They noted that actual progress in reading speed demands consistent effort. It is not uncommon to encounter periods of reading without full comprehension, a phenomenon worth noting for potential readers.
A second reviewer shared that they experienced a noticeable improvement in reading speed within the initial chapters. However, as they progressed further into the book, their speed plateaued, leading them to not finish the last few chapters. Despite this, they still recommend the book, especially for those who engage in frequent reading. Meanwhile, another reader appreciated the book's emphasis on 'how we learn' over 'what we learn'. Though they did find some exercises more challenging than others, especially the one involving peripheral vision.
In a similar vein, another individual was drawn to Tony Buzan's previous work on mind-mapping before diving into this speed reading guide. They found the theoretical framework of the book compelling, suggesting that it's indeed possible to enhance reading speed while maintaining or even improving comprehension. This reader successfully increased their reading speed initially, but midway, they began to find some techniques difficult, which impacted their comprehension. This raises a point of reflection on whether some techniques might resonate more with certain readers than others. As with any skill-building book, it seems the effectiveness of these techniques can be subjective and varies from reader to reader.
