And as the poster Tyler asked what are your thoughts on photo reading? I tested PhotoReading when it first appeared on the scene and was being advertised heavily on TV. I have yet to meet anyone who can demonstrate it live and then undergo any type of comprehension or recall testing. Here are my experiences: At the moment, I am testing myself. One night I dreamed of the pages. In my dream I was able to see the pages but the Text was not sharp, so I was not able to read conscious within my dream.
Sometimes I imagine without timestopping , that speedreading goes faster when photoreading ahead. Sometimes when speedreading I rerecognize pages and know that I have seen them before. For the time being, I will continue to be very selective about what I read low-information diet to minimize the time spent with reading.
Reading a book by A. Huxley about the art of seeing, in which he describes how he manged to heal strong his seeing problems, I figured out that while trying to photoread I had the wrong focus with my eyes. While learning the photofocus I tryed to reach a visonable expression like described by Scheele in his book.
Actually I figured out that I did not focus on a thing which is farer away than the book. Instead my visual focus was set up for seeing things very close. To test if you do the same mistake you can use a pen and move it infront of your eyes while beeing in the wrong photo focus. If you see the pen shark, I think, than you do it wrong. I will give it an other try after having learned to focus in the distance. What might improve my eyes too as Scheele describes too.
Next to the exercices of the bates method. The experiences I made with sunlight concerning the Bates method, are positive. At least in the moment just after the exercise.

It really depends on what you are reading. Sometimes it is necessary to slow down and let your mind and emotions catch up with what you have read. Not everything should be read quickly. It is somewhat akin to inline skating through the Louvre. Sure you can see everything 10 times as fast, but you miss details along the way. Speed reading is basically scanning. With that said, I had a professor once who could scan long reports in seconds and give detailed feedback.

Maybe I just need more practice. Thank for the great post. I just did the exercises in the article. Wow, great tutorial. Great post…as always. I practiced photoreading quite a bit in college while cramming for exams.
I found that I could not effectively recall the information for essay questions and oral exams, but it seemed to really help with multiple choice questions. Then again, maybe I just got good at taking MC tests. Any way I have been implimenting 4-HWW principals for about 2 years now and am loving life on my own terms!
Thanks again and best of luck on your next book amigo! Sometimes for me it is hard to deal with the fact that education is not directly income generating. Let me add to this something that I learned when I took my first speed reading course. I did it when I was an institutional broker for a large investment bank in London. He was teaching a class in Oxford. His first student came into the room and sat very near him.
Seinfeld would have called him a close talker, I believe. As the tuition began, the first speed reading accessment came in. On average, most people read about words per minute, or about as fast as we talk, as we sound the words in our head as we read. This kid came in at 1, words per minute. The instructor was astounded. Now most people, after trying and improving a few times, you can get over 1, words — I hit over 1, per minute — but it takes a couple of tries.
About This Class
This kid was doing 1, per minute every time, without the tuition. They just look at shapes.
Much like Su Doku, which is NOT a numbers game, just a game played with numbers, you need to get 9 shapes in a square, row, or line without repeating. Like Liked by 4 people. I think it will stick with practice.
