Beale, a corporate trainer, outlines simple strategies for reading faster and boosting comprehension, both on paper and at the computer screen. The first section introduces several speed strategies, including using your hands and a card, reading key words, reading thought chunks, and spreading peripheral vision to see more words at a glance. The second section deals with differences between different types of reading, and gives advice on skimming, scanning, summarizing, and understanding the organizational patterns of most nonfiction. The book also gives commonsense advice on dealing with backlogged to-read piles. Appendices offer a glossary, timed reading exercises, and personal progress charts.
