“What would it take for Dr. North to persuade me to use Spreeder for 10 minutes a day?”
Spreeder is a free online program to improve your speed reading skills and speed up your reading abilities. I have started to use Spreeder 10 minutes a day. I can read an average of 800-850 words per minute with full comprehension on Spreeder.
What are the advantages of using Spreeder and having the ability to read at 1000 wpm or more? According to Spreeder, most people can read at about 200 wpm—the same rate they read at out loud. Being able to speed read gives you a great advantage. John F. Kennedy was able to quickly scan a document, fully comprehend it and then discuss it. This ability not only saved time, but gave him an advantage over his aides, colleagues and advisors.
I think that speed reading is handy when you have to read lengthy books or documents. You don’t exactly want to speed read your favorite novel, but for most other things, speed reading is extremely advantageous.
