An average Indian reader reading English script will have a wpm of 220-280. This book will definitely take your wpm count beyond 350. The book is a methodical home trainer, with regular practice on lit pieces alongside the book will give you a 80-95% comprehension and a high reading speed in 2-3 months. I would recommend it a must to anyone who are struggling to increase their RC and its so much easy after you pick up that speed and comprehension. Now I read newspapers with so much easy and you feel good about having made that investment in the book, which has increased your speed and comprehension. --Santosh Angadageri on Feb 1, 2012
You will never have encountered a book so effective that u get overwhelmed by its positives so much that u don't have time time to find flaws in it. For anyone looking to not just increase reading speed but make himself an efficient reader this book is a boon....Go 4 it do not think!! --Abhishek Jaiswal on May 7, 2012
This book is like a workbook, wherein you get tips and techniques to improve your reading speed followed by exercises to practice these techniques. You also get to keep measuring your reading speed regularly, so you can definitely see for yourself whether these techniques are effective or not. If you go through this book diligently, am sure your reading speed would improve a lot in due course of time. But don't expect that without practicing diligently you will suddenly improve your reading speed just by studying about the techniques-that would be like thinking that you can swim just by reading about swimming! --Aravind on Jul 20, 2014
