1:I just got out of the hospital. I was in a speed-reading accident. I hit a bookmark ~ Steven Wright,
2:I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia. ~ Woody Allen,
3:I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia. ~ Woody Allen,
4:I took a speed reading course and my speed shot up to 43 pages a minute, but my comprehension plummeted. ~ Brian Regan,
5:I just got out of the hospital. I was in a speed reading accident. I hit a book mark and flew across the room. ~ Steven Wright,
6:It is wasteful to read a book slowly that deserves only a fast reading; speed reading skills can help you solve that problem. ~ Mortimer J Adler,
7:Adieu, sucky speed-reading critics and reviewers!"
Terry Dare, gothic author in Blatty's book "Elsewhere", just before he crosses over. ~ William Peter Blatty,
8:I took a speed-reading course where you run your finger down the middle of the page and was able to read "War and Peace" in 20 minutes. It’s about Russia. ~ Woody Allen,
9:The early development of speed reading can be traced to the beginning of the (20th) century, when the publication explosion swamped readers with more than they could possibly handle at normal reading rates. ~ Tony Buzan,
10:A good speed reading course should therefore teach you to read at many different speeds, not just one speed that is faster than anything you can manage now. It should enable you to vary your rate of reading in accordance with the nature and complexity of the material. ~ Mortimer J Adler,
11:Teaching literature is teaching how to read. How to notice things in a text that a speed-reading culture is trained to disregard, overcome, edit out, or explain away; how to read what the language is doing, not guess what the author was thinking; how to take evidence from a page, not seek a reality to substitute for it. ~ Barbara Johnson,
12:Certainly, some reading material merits a quick read, but habitual skimming is for the mind what a steady diet of fast food is for the body. Speed-reading is not only inferior to deep reading but may bring more harm that benefits: one critic cautions taht reading fast is simply a 'way of fooling yourself into thinking you're learning something.' When you read quickly, you aren't thinking critically or making connections. Worse yet, 'speed-reading gives you two things that should never mix: superficial knowledge and overconfidence. ~ Karen Swallow Prior,
13:Studies show that people who read at or above the college level all read at about the same speed when they read for pleasure.  Within the contentious world of reading theory, there is unanimity on this point. When you factor out the amount of time spent thinking through complex and unfamiliar concepts—a rarity when people read for pleasure—reading is an appallingly mechanical process. You look at a word or several words. This is called a “fixation,” and it takes about .25 seconds on average. You move your eye to the next word or group of words. This is called a “saccade,” and it takes up to about .1 seconds on average. After this is repeated once or twice, you pause to comprehend the phrase you just looked at. That takes roughly 0.3 to 0.5 seconds on average. Add all these fixations and saccades and comprehension pauses together and you end up with about 95 percent of all college-level readers reading between 200 and 400 words per minute, according to Keith Rayner, a psycholinguist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The majority of these college-level readers reads about 300 words per minute.  What about the far end of the bell curve? Isn’t it possible there are a handful of super-smart Aloysiuses out there who can read much faster than everybody else? John F. Kennedy was said to read 1,200 words per minute. The speed-reading huckster Evelyn Wood claimed that a professor boasted of consuming more than 2,500 words per minute “with outstanding recall and comprehension.” A 1963 study purported to find one person who read 17,040 words per minute. The last two examples are gleaned from a 1985 study in Reading Research Quarterly, by Ronald Carver, a professor of education research and psychology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Carver thinks all three of these examples are bunk. JFK, he says, probably read 500-600 words a minute—that’s very fast—and perhaps could skim 1,000 words per minute. ~ Timothy Noah, “The 1,000-Word Dash”, Slate, (02/2000).,
