Almost 30 years ago, I experienced Speed Reading with Dick Cavett (Time Life Video). The self-paced video training program changed my life for the better.
I am not sure how speed reading can be applied to reading electronic books and articles (though "surfing" has some similarities). I did a search on Amazon to look for the latest on "speed reading," but was disappointed to find only dated offerings. Moreover, the Dick Cavett speed reading videos I enjoyed are long discontinued. Is speed reading a lost art?
In the mean time, I have read many more fantastic books with higher reading comprehension during my lifetime than I would have had I not encountered Dick Cavett's video course so many years ago.
