From the Publisher:

In the past twenty years alone, more discoveries have been made and more information has been published than in all of mankind's history up to this point. How can the average person keep up with this explosion of information? What is to happen to students, parents and everyone else who need to stay ahead of this changing world?

These are the people for whom this book is written.

Power Reading is actually a course in book format. It is a distillation of years of teaching and research. It contains the techniques evolved through teaching thousands of people how to become more powerful, more effective readers.

Power Reading is different from all of the reading programs that came before it. Over the years since it came out, other programs have tried to borrow some of the techniques and terms and even the title of this course, but you will find nothing else really compares with Power Reading.

During this course we'll cover many basic areas in a simple, straightforward survey approach. You will learn not only how, but why you do each step in changing your reading styles. Later you will be asked to use the bibliography and read other books and articles about this subject. Power Reading encourages you to come to your own conclusions and opinions in this as well as every other field.

By the end of this 30-day program you will find it easier to sit down to read and research an area. You will learn how to cover a large amount of material and cull it until you have isolated the essentials and pinpointed the crux of the issues.

You'll be able to read easily in many types of material and will be comfortable with varying your speed to obtain the comprehension and enjoyment you desire. No longer will you be limited to just a single reading rate as most readers are; the basic rate at which you read everything will increase and your comprehension should improve.

Thousands of people have already successfully completed the Power Reading course and acquired its advanced speedreading, studying and note taking, test taking, technical reading and comprehension skills.

We look forward to you and your family joining this unique group and becoming the most powerful readers in the world.

From the Author:

The need to read, cover, understand and use large amounts of information grows with each passing day. To keep up with the latest developments in any field requires Power Reading.

I have always loved to read and learn. In college, I specialized in cybernetics; information and communication among people or within any system whether it was biological, physical or electronic. I witnessed the beginning of the information explosion in the 1960s which has progressed at an ever-accelerating pace and will continue to do so in the future.

As a result, Power Reading becomes more important every day. Power Reading is different from all of the reading programs that came before it. Over the years since it came out, I have seen other programs try to borrow some of the techniques and terms and even the title of this course, but I believe that you will find nothing else really compares with Power Reading.

Power Reading is simple and easy to learn. It emphasizes comprehension first and then teaches you how to speed up your reading. It teaches you in your own materials while you work or study. It shows you what to do step-by-step to become one of the most powerful readers in the world.

Power Reading is so effective because it has evolved from years of successfully teaching thousands of others how to do something that I love to do myself - read and learn!

I look forward to helping you become one of the best readers in the world.
