Step 5 Rapid Read

In school we learned to read with the left hemisphere of the brain in a very conscious, linear, one-syllable-at-a-time manner. This was excellent for building visual recognition of words and a working vocabulary. However, this type of reading severely limits processing speed and comprehension of written information. Since you are already skilled at reading, it is time to grow beyond the limitations of early schooling and realize your tremendous capacity for efficient reading.

The ultimate goal of a skilled reader is to read across a broad range of speeds. Truly skillful reading is flexible reading, which varies speed depending upon the complexity of the information and purpose for reading.
