2. Book Description

This book introduces the method of visual reading.
In addition to transforming you from a vocal reader who can only read 150-240 words per minute to a professional reader with reading speeds of 400-600 words per minute, the method can boost your reading comprehension and memory skills.

The author believes there is a glass ceiling between those who can only read 150-240 words per minute and those who read 400-600 words per minute.
This glass ceiling precludes the former group of readers from attaining the knowledge and expertise of the latter, “elite”, group that has accumulated this knowledge through many years of training by reading thousands of pages of academic texts. It is like in the field of professional sport which is accessible to the top two percent of athletes only.

Thus, this book views the two reading worlds – the world of vocal readers with reading speeds of 150-240 words per minute and the world of visual readers with speeds of 400-600 words per minute – as two separate worlds that are based on contrasting reading principles and algorithms.

The former relies on the principles of vocal reading, negative feedback, verbal memory and a zero-sum game between the reading speed and omprehension. The latter is founded on the principles of visual reading, positive feedback, episodic memory, a non-zero-sum game between reading speed and comprehension.

Because these two reading algorithms are very different, it is not possible for vocal readers to achieve reading speeds of more than 400 words per minute by simply increasing the volume of texts they read over a period of time.
That misconception that reading more will automatically improve your reading speed and comprehension is the main reason why in English speaking countries most readers are able to read only 180-240 words per minute.

Visual Reading and the Snowball of Understanding explains the logic and principles of visual reading. In addition, the book outlines the methods to achieve reading speeds of more than 400 words per minute.

Differently from most of the literature published on speed reading techniques, this book teaches you how to achieve the mode of a non-zero-sum game between your reading speed and comprehension. In other words, the book shows that content comprehension does not need to be compromised when your reading speed increases. Thus, a zero-sum game between your reading speed and comprehension can be avoided.

In conclusion, increasing a reading speed to more than 400 words per minute is an achievable goal for any vocal or sub-vocal reader.
This has been proved by the success of 700 individuals whom the author of this book, Hyo Sang Shin, has trained in the last eight years to increase their reading speeds and comprehension and to become visual readers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Don't expect to learn to speed read from this book. 29. Februar 2012
Von OldSport - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I downloaded this book in the hope that I could improve my reading speeds, but was disappointed by the lack of practical information. A lot of time in this book is spent discussing the benefits and theories of speed reading, but very little given to actual techniques. Most "how to" tips were just a description of how the author teaches at his seminars without actually showing you how to put it into practice. (I especially liked how he showed how to draw lines all over the book, so you can quickly catch reoccurring themes. But you might as well read out loud without destroying your book.) At least this book gave me something to strive for, and if he ever does give a seminar in my area I'd signing up!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not a bad free book but... 29. Februar 2012
Von Catherine S - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I thought the writer had some very interesting ideas on how visual readers are faster with better comprehension than verbal readers. Trouble is the writer also spend nearly a third of the book, talking about what he was going do in the next book. In fact I think the writer spend almost as much time writing about plans for a follow up book as he did actually teaching the reader to speed read. I don't know you but, I really don't trust a writer that uses one book to sell another.

UPDATE: Since I read this book it is now no longer free, not sure why that is I would not have gotten this one if I had to pay for it. Again, this writer spends far too much of this book writing about plans for the next book, would not waste the money on it if I was you.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not for me... 4. Mai 2012
Von KnittyKitty - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hmm...this one was a bit strange. It's basically a book about speed reading, but from a more New-Agey perspective. The concept was pretty far out there to say the least. Unfortunately, I don't really think this method is for me. Shin seems to be a super legitimate person in regards to this technique so I guess I shouldn't be so skeptical. Essentially, visual reading is a method where you see the connections between all the words and see sentences as structured 3d objects. Shin's argument is that people who sub-vocally or vocally read are only using their working memory to understand the words on a page and since this part of our memory is so short and limited in capacity, these readers quickly forget what they have previously read. I have never found this to be a problem though and I am definitely a sub-vocal reader. If I get confused about something I'm reading I just flip back and see what I'm missing to make the proper connections with what I'm currently reading. Shin's reason for promoting this type of reading which apparently can yield up to 1200 words per minute (CRAZY!!) is that if people can read this fast with the supposed enhanced understanding that comes with it, then more people can be exposed to all the great ideas people have presented in the past on how to fix the ills of the world. A noble goal, but I guess I'm too set in my reading habits to consider the training required to master this method of reading worth my time...

The ideas in this book are exciting to me and I'm going to pursue the technique. The idea of visual reading had never occurred to me before reading this book. The brain is truly amazing!

I have always been a vocal reader. I really enjoyed this book and now believe I will be able to realize my goal. Thank you for helping me understand that I can read faster with greater comprehension.
