| | Speed Reading
I've never heard of PhotoReading but as I read so much I'm keen to find out more. I have never done a speed reading course but have managed to learn how to 'scan read' at a fairly good speed. However it only really works for subject matter that I am already familiar with - I guess that knowing the context helps to speed the processing of information.
The only problem I have with speed reading is with it's effectiveness in altering our tacit knowledge. It's one thing to read a book quickly - quite another to apply the newly aquired knowledge effectively.
Has anyone tried mind mapping a book that they have speed read or photo read? Would be good to know that the reading is fruitful otherwise it's another case of quantity over quality!
