Speed reading: How to read more books

This course helps you improve the four key elements of reading: mindset, memory, eye movement, and speed.

Once you streamline such a major part of your workload, you’ll discover you have more hours in the day.

Imagine how many hours you can regain in your life when you double or triple your reading speed.

If you save just one hour per day for a year, that equals 365 hours and more than nine 40-hour work weeks!

Take a competitive edge over your peers by increasing your reading speed.

Trust me, this new skill will not go unnoticed.
