There is absolutely no way for me to ever triple my reading speed, or even increase my pathetic typing speed, due to mild dyslexia. Vocabulary – maybe…

But… once my vocabulary is tripled, I still have the lifetime subscription?

I can’t object to anyone wanting to embiggen their vocabulary but I’d prefer to read carefully than fast in many cases.


#5

Wasn’t speed reading thoroughly debunked?


#6

Throw in selectively, as well. So much junk out there and I have no qualms about abandoning something that turns out to be junk, or starts out good and then bores me.

My mother-in-law, now almost 70, swears by it. She says it made a huge difference for her in college.

That being said, YouTube is full of speed-reading courses. Not sure why you’d want to drop $29 for it.

Were my vocabulary any more prodigious, I reckon I’d be unintelligible.


#9

No, that was reading on speed.
