10 Days to Faster Reading - Abby Marks-Beale

UPDATE: an in-depth summary of 10 Days to Faster Reading has been posted on the Personal MBA Blog. Enjoy!

When reading non-fiction, reading a book word-for-word is often a sub-optimal approach: non-linear reading strategies can help increase your reading speed while maintaining high comprehension. Developed by the Princeton Language Learning Institute, the reading techniques taught in 10 Days to Faster Reading are supported by research and very easy to understand and apply. I know they work from experience: by applying these techniques, I was able to review hundreds of books in the process of creating the Personal MBA Recommended Reading List.

I’ve reviewed many reading skills programs, including one that cost over $200, and this book is the best: superior content at a very reasonable price. By reading 10 Days to Faster Reading and working each day to improve your reading skills, you’ll be able to work your way through the Personal MBA in record time.

Here’s a bonus: for a quick, free primer on effective non-fiction reading techniques, check out How to Read a Book (PDF) by Paul N. Edwards.
