  1. By absolute standards, people are slow readers. Yet, they differ widely in reading rate. Some gulp books by taking in a hundred words or more with in a minute; others plod along through week or more. However, there is nothing to proof that slow readers retained and comprehend the reading matter better.
  2. Now, it is a fact that the reading rate can be improved by exercise. During, The Second World  War, British, psychologists developed a technique (aircraft-spotter classes) by which people could be taught to identify enemy air-planes in an instant. Thousands of English men could spot a German plane from a faint a silhouette at a glance which helped save countless lives and launch retaliatory air-stories. This prompted some investigators to look for techniques that would teach people to read faster. For the first time this was done at Harvard University in the United States after the Second World War, and classes were organised for business wishing to learn fast reading. Now, such classes are conducted at many factories, offices, firms in many countries.
  3. A widely held opinion is that when a person reads, his eyes sweep smoothly across the page. Actually, during an hour of continuous reading, his eyes remain fixed for an average of 57 minutes and only move, in the remaining three minutes. The greater the number of words the reader can cover during a stop and the better he comprehends them, the faster the reading. Precisely this goal is sought in training people to read fast. With appropriate techniques and simple gadgets ( like a tachistoscope, or phase-flasher), your reading rate can be stepped up five to ten times or even more.
  4. It appears that fast reading should be started at school when children have not yet picked up bad reading habits ( especially subvocalizing), that is the tendency to form words with their local chords. It is a well known fact that a drawing, a diagram or a photography will usually carry more information then a printed text taking up the same area. A person grasps this graphic information all at a time. This ability is mainly utilized in technical publications, but not to the full extent yet. In all probability, a happy combination of printed text and graphic matter can be found for each glass of information and for each bracket of readers to give a maximum rate of information input to a person’s brain. Coupled with fast reading, this may raise the rate of information input tens or even hundreds of times which should be most welcome in the modern times of information explosion.
