Introduction

From the mid-sixties to the early seventies, the Cutler Acceleread Method was taught successfully in classrooms to over 10,000 persons -- both students and adults -- primarily in the Southwest.

In-residence classes conducted for relatively small study groups developed dramatic improvements in individual reading rates and comprehension scores. Accelerated Education Schools, the name under which the Acceleread Course was marketed exclusively, operated for the most part in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

The schools guaranteed that all graduates of the program would be able to read 1,000 words-per-minute or three times the pre-course tested rate (whichever was greater), with improved comprehension. Records prove the average rate increase for graduates of the closely supervised, individualized course ranged from seven to twelve times -- depending upon the individual student's basic ability, the type of material being read, the purpose for which it was read, and other factors.

Comprehension, as measured by objective tests, typically improved an average of 13 percent. However, overall understanding of what was read improved markedly -- usually far more than that which could be measured solely by objective testing. An integral part of the outstanding success of this reading method was the intensive, specialized training and practice in developing previewing techniques, better study habits, and improved test-taking skills.

This book course contains all the necessary theory, explanations, drills, study, and practice exercises to enable a motivated, "average" reader to at least triple his or her present reading rate, and improve overall comprehension -- if the program outlined here is closely followed.

This is a tested and proven method; it is in no way experimental. You can put the techniques that are described here to valuable use by applying them to improve your personal/business success and educational prowess. Remember: reading is the basis of all education.

Learn About Reading and Yourself

In this section you will learn...

• that you definitely can read faster, much faster -- and comprehend more of what you read

• how to measure your present reading rate and comprehension with two inventory reading exercises and tests

• how you actually were taught and, consequently, learned to read slowly

• the important role eye movements play in determining your reading speed

• some of the many actual rewards of accelerated (speed) reading

You Can Read Much Faster

If you can read these words easily, you can read faster. You probably have some doubts or reservations. You might say that it just is not possible, that you can read only so fast and that is it. Not true! It is now possible for all readers (possessing at least average abilities) who apply themselves to the guides and materials in this book-course to at least triple their present words-per-minute rate, and improve overall comprehension of what is required or chosen reading.

What does this mean to you personally?

It means you will be able to read three similar books in the time you now require to read only one -- and you will understand what you read much better.

• You will reduce normal reading fatigue by as much as two-thirds.

• You will be able to keep up with the required reading of your profession or professional pursuit -- the paper backlog that seems to get bigger with each passing day.

• You will be able to read daily newspapers, magazines, reports, and letters in much less time.

• You will also have time to read a few of the current bestsellers so you can discuss them intelligently with friends. (It does get to be embarrassing to always have to say no when an acquaintance asks if you have read such and such book!)

• You might even be able to have a lot more leisure- and fun-time when you become an Accelerated Reader.

These are just a few of the many advantages of successful faster reading. You will no doubt be able to add to this limited list.

Interested?

Wonderful! Read on.


A strong desire to improve reading speed and comprehension is absolutely necessary before a marked change for the better is to be either expected or actually noted -- know this from the outset. If you honestly desire improvement, you will drill, practice, and read with the regularity and determination that will assure you achieve your reading speed and comprehension goals sooner.

Perhaps you still question your innate ability to succeed with tripling your reading rate and improving comprehension. If so, contemplate the following statement: Psychologists have estimated that the average individual uses only about 10 percent of his or her mental abilities. Ten percent! What a pity to waste some 90 percent! If you are reading at say 100 to 300 words per minute now -- using 10 percent of your reading ability -- how fast could you read if you used 20, 30, 40 percent or more?

A primary purpose of Triple Your Reading Speed is to assist you to search out, perfect, and more fully utilize the wonderful skills you already possess. After you learn to exploit this innate "genius potential" for faster reading with better comprehension, you certainly should be able to make reading and study time a more meaningful, valuable, productive, and enjoyable experience.

When you learn to triple your reading speed, you will confront two pleasant scenarios: (1) you will be able to reduce markedly the time you now require to do necessary reading; and (2) you will be able to get much more done in the same amount of time. Either way you are the winner!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally real speed reading techniques 12 juillet 2005
Par SuperConnected - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Most speed reading books are on skimming. I suggest you toss anything out that expects you to skim. Some will say "how to read a book" and basically tell you to look at chapter titles and headings and then skim over them quickly - toss those books too.

This book has real techniques - several. It handles sub-vocalization, covers widening your vision, reading 2 lines or more at once, handling your eye movement, techniques like a two stop method (I won't explain here as it is his own), and more.

I collect speed reading techniques. They are very hard to find. Most speed reading books do not have them. I feel like I hit gold with this book. It has many.

I think this guy wrote a decent book because he's been doing it since the 1970's and has been focusing on collecting techniques.

Forget the other books, buy this. You will read much faster and have many different "real" ways of doing it. You can pick which you like best and adopt that method. Don't skip this book, it's gold.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Results! 16 mai 2006
Par Filip Radopoulos Marnellos - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've read a couple of different methods to manage my wpm (words per minute) ratio and with Cutler's book I achieved the highest speed I could ever imagine. Exceeded all my expectations!!!

At first all books start with reducing all natural habits we have i.e. repeating what we read or loosing focus and concentration with a result of going back to the last word we remember and many others.
Some methods tell you to skip whole sentences but grab the meaning of the paragraphs (which by the way does not help at all when studying GMAT since you miss all the desired details).
Others tell you to keep reading even if you get to the point that you don't understand what you read...

Well with Triple your Reading Speed, you start with a few easy exercises to cut down all the bad habits and then it puts you to the most interesting part were you actually start counting your self while seeing results....
Without missing sentences or words, just by widening your area of viewing. you learn how to concentrate in three parts of every sentence in the beginning of the sentence, middle and end.
Then it takes you to the next level were you keep focusing on these three parts but not right into the sentence But in the middle of two and later three sentences. You actually double and then triple the amount of words by reading in the middle of the sentences and perceive the three parts of three sentences at the same time while manage to process them at the same time.

You will understand how valuable it is to maximize the speed of your reading when you read your first book, or start reading all the GMAT paragraphs and remember every single detail and information.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great techniques that you must be willing to practice 18 avril 2006
Par IH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
The book contains a number of solid techniques on how to improve reading speed. It also describes a number of things that can really slow you down. There's an interesting explanation of how we are "trained" to read slowly at school, and how this manifests itself in later years through "blocks to better reading". As a newbie speed reader, it was a bit of an eye opener to realize how many ways you can subconsciously slow your reading down. The good news is that they are fairly easy to recognize, although I can't attest to how easily they are to overcome.

I also liked the techniques given regarding how to preview reading materials to improve your comprehension and retention of the materials. I read the WSJ every day, together with lots of business magazines and many books, so it was good to understand a few simple techniques that I could put into practice immediately.

The bulk of the book contains reading exercises and tests to both improve your speed and comprehension, then later quantify it. I'm pretty analytical, so this facet of the book was particularly appealing.

All in all, a great resource. The one downside is that you really need to practice the exercises to get the best out of the book. This isn't meant to be a negative comment regarding the material, far from it. Just setting expectations I guess.

There's no silver bullet to improve your reading speed, but I certainly found a lot of very worthwhile "ammunition" in this book :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book Works... Very Well. 1 décembre 2007
Par Coyote - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
As a writer, one of the requirements of my trade is to read books. All the time. Sometimes you need to read up on a subject for research, other times just to know what current trends in your genre of choice are. As I child, I used to love reading and did it daily. As an adult, I have more pressing things to do than spend 11 hours reading a mystery novel. Consequently, I've been reading less and less over the years as my personal responsibilities increase.

I've always been a slow reader. My reading method was to savor every single word. I tried to learn speed reading when I was younger. Although I identified my bad habits, I had little success overcoming them and the "finger pacing" methods they taught me were just tedious. After a whole book, my hand was tired and the tip of my finger was tender from cheap paper. My weak spots, specifically, were these: I read one word at a time, I sounded the text aloud in my mind as an inner dialog, and I tended to jump backward and read things twice.

I'm only half way through this book, and have practiced the techniques less than I should have, but my reading rate has indeed tripled. I started out reading 130 words a minute when I began this book. I'm currently reading 400-425 words a minute. I just completed reading a series of 320 page novels that would have taken me around eleven hours each to read. Now, they each took me between 4 1/2 to 5 hours to read. I'm reading two entire lines at a glance, and yes, my comprehension is excellent.

I've read other reviews where people complain about the drills. Why? They work. Did you learn algebra by reading a book and never doing any practice problems? The drills train your eyes to see more words at a time and comprehend larger bites without analyzing individual words. When I started, I had my doubts about whether I would overcome my bad habits, because I'd failed to do so with other techniques. I'm pleased to say, having only finished HALF the book so far, I did overcome them all, thanks to the drills. Now further improvement is only a matter of more practice. I'm excited to think how quickly I'll be reading by the time I finish this book. And the real benefit... I enjoy reading again, the way I used to when I had nothing better to do on a summer afternoon than absorb the words of Tolkien like a sponge.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Does what it says. . . 19 juillet 2007
Par a writing teacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I am a teacher, and I have been using this book in my classroom. It does, in fact, triple your reading speed without reducing your comprehension.

You should know, though, that this book is not intended to be read cover-to-cover; it's really a set of drills, a full course of speed reading exercises in a book with accompanying instructions, and it may take you weeks to work through it completely and thoroughly (although some people see results much faster). If you take the time, you will almost certainly get the results you want, but you should expect to make an investment. Some of the drills themselves look a little strange--almost like eye charts--because one basic aspect of the book's approach is to change the way your eyes focus as you read. It turns out that these drills do accomplish their purpose and do make you read much faster; it just requires a leap of faith to invest time into the exercises.

Another reviewer quoted the book as saying that you should read faster, then make up for lost time by rereading. Taken out of context, this is a little misleading. The author does suggest that you are better off reading quickly even if you have to reread--because reading slowly is so time-consuming--but he doesn't suggest that you should reread everything all the time.

It seems to me that most positive reviews of this book are from people who treated it as a reading course and did the exercises; most negative reviews of this book are from people who read it from cover to cover looking for descriptions of new speed reading tips or techniques. Buy, or don't buy, accordingly. :)
