5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Home-Study Course, 26. Juli 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Breakthrough Rapid Reading (Taschenbuch)
This is probably the best book that I've read on speed reading. In an earlier review, I suggested that Zorn's book, "Speed Reading," was the best. It is indeed a fine book. Kump's book, however, give a more realistic idea of the kind of work it takes to boost your reading speed. Other books give a smattering of exercises--often very good ones--without emphasizing the kind of practice that is necessary, or even that you won't necessarily be able to maintain high speeds across all types of reading material.
Kump uses familiar reading exercises, and variations on them. The lessons are brief, and each lesson contains short (10-15 minutes) exercises; at the end of each lesson, you are instructed to do a series of drills. Kump wants you to spend about a week on each series of drills, and to repeat them every day. They can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or more a day, depending on how much time you are willing to spend. I've found most--but not all--drills useful. The ones that were not useful to me drilled on skills I already had (recognizing levels of specificity within paragraphs, for instance).
Here's an example of one particularly useful drill. Kump has you read for 2 minutes, as fast as you can with comprehension. Then you read the same material again, trying to read a little faster, and a little further, in the same amount of time. And again. You do this four times. A variation of this is to read for 1 minute, then a little faster for another minute, and then to "practice read" (i.e., move your eyes quickly across the words, without worrying about comprehension) twice the longest passage in the same amount of time. Then you practice read three times the original (that is, the longest of the first two 1-minute drills) in one minute.
One REALLY nice thing about this book is that Kump has you use your own reading material, your own books. Other books include selections for you to practice with, most of which are tedious, simplistic, or just too brief. Kump's exercises work, and you can read your own books while you practice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best investments I have ever made!, 27. Juni 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Breakthrough Rapid Reading (Taschenbuch)
This is the book for the skeptics. I researched several speed reading methods and doubted all of them. Mr. Kump's book seemed to make the least outlandish claims, so I chose to take a chance on it. It turns out that this is the best $20 I have ever spent! I am about to start a part-time MBA program at a prestigous university. I have a wife and two children and was desperate to try a technique that could improve the efficiency with which I learn. Now, I am so excited about starting my degree program, and so much of that is due to my completing this book. The book has taught me many simple techniques which have increased the speed of my reading, but much more important to me, is the fact that I now comprehend and recall much more of the info than I did in the past. I can now read technical material at three times the speed that I used to and my recall is far superior to what it used to be. No more having to read the same chapter 2, 3, or 4 times and no more "outlining" the entire thing in an attempt to remember everything. I cannot recommend this book enough. It takes work and effort to complete the exercises on a daily basis, but if you are serious you will find that the investment in time and energy will payoff many times over. It is my intention to teach this skill, it is a learned skill, to my children and I am trying to convince my wife to take the time to learn it also. Good luck and do not hesitate to try it. THANK YOU, PETER KUMP!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly recommended!, 1. April 2010
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Breakthrough Rapid Reading (Taschenbuch)
I started reading this book half a year ago and while I am only halfway through with it, I am reading three times or even faster than before. For more than twenty years, I have read everything I could get my hands on, from fiction to scientific reports, but even with easy material, my reading speed never exceeded 280 words per minute (measured before I started with this book). After two weeks I had doubled my reading speed and now I am closing in on 1000 words per minute. I arrived there relatively comfortably by reading chapter by chapter and by following Peter Kump's instructions carefully. The exercises are easy and don't take much of your time (at first 15 minutes, but if you like to practice, you can easily spend an hour "playing") and you see the results almost immediately. I was astonished at my progress and am still excited about it. And I am convinced that this book can help everybody to at least triple his reading speed. All you have to do is do the exercises and practice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just started...but looking good..., 1. August 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Breakthrough Rapid Reading (Taschenbuch)
I had some serious doubts about "Speed Reading"...so I bought this one from Amazon after researching, and reading alot...ALOT...of user comments. This one struck me as the only one that claimed the least, looked the best (from user comments), and seemed like a good overall choice.
In about 4 days, I've worked my speed to double my original rate. I'm still going through the book, and frankly im not even a third of the way through. I now comfortably read probably 120% more than what I originally could. When I read the old fashioned way, I feel like a snail.
It takes work. Kump not only gives you exercises, directions, explanations of those directions, but also gives you some estimations of how much you will accomplish - depending on how hard you work at it.
I'll give an update when i'm through the book completely. But as of right now...I frankly dont see how anyone of average reading abilities could get this book and not at least double their reading rate within a short amount of time. And to me, that alone is worth the price of the book (two lunches, tops).

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Will Save You Many Hours, 26. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Breakthrough Rapid Reading (Taschenbuch)
As a college freshman, I had difficulty keeping up with the reading for all of my different classes. In the summer after that year, I purchased this book and benefitted greatly from it! This book teaches great techniques for taking effective notes on materials you read. After trying four or five other books, I found that this one was the only one which provided realistic answers on how to improve reading speed and comprehension. A must for any student!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome book. Doubled speed after 3 chapters!, 27. Oktober 1999
Von 
There are a few books to choose from on the subject of Speed Reading.. It was hard to make a decision, but this one definitely works for me [so far]. After using just a few of the techniques in the beginning chapters of the book--I've literally doubled my reading speed. Great book though. I like how it actually explains the concepts supporting the techniques.
There is also a paperback (second edition)--but don't see it at Amazon.

The first book I have seen on rapid reading that explains the underlying principles so that I could actually believe rapid reading is possible!
