#1 Speed Reading Book on Amazon for 2 Straight YearsThis has become the go to book for students, teachers, educators, professionals, and home-school parents & children to rapidly improve their reading. It offers simple tips to not only accelerate reading, but comprehension and memory.

Unlike other books that merely teach you to skim & scan, this book taps into your brain and eyes’ amazing power to naturally read more words in a shorter time. Please Note:With self-publishing becoming easier, there are a growing number of copycats on Amazon copying hard work of legitimate authors.

They don’t spend time to understand a topic, only summarize what others have written to make money. Many have taken material directly from here, though they miss the crucial instructions that create the important shifts in reading & habits. With that, please take the low star reviews here with a grain of salt as they are posted by them to boost their own sales and ranking.

In fact, this isn’t your average speed reading book. I spent years refining the techniques to double or even triple you reading speed with a few simple shifts. No skimming, no scanning, but reading every word with double or triple the speed.

Mary Pipher’s groundbreaking investigation of America’s “girl-poisoning culture,” Reviving Ophelia, has sold nearly two million copies and established its author as one of the nation’s foremost authorities on family issues. In Letters to a Young Therapist, Dr. Pipher shares what she has learned in thirty years as a therapist, helping warring families, alienated adolescents, and harried professionals restore peace and beauty to their lives.

Letters to a Young Therapist gives voice to her practice with an exhilarating mix of storytelling and sharp-eyed observation. And while her letters are addressed to an imagined young therapist, every one of us can take something away from them.

Long before “positive psychology” became a buzzword, Dr. Pipher practiced a refreshingly inventive therapy – fiercely optimistic, free of dogma or psychobabble, and laced with generous warmth and practical common sense. But not until now has this gifted healer described her unique perspective on how therapy can help us revitalize our emotional landscape in an increasingly stressful world.
