Strategies to power through your reading – and improve understanding

Do you feel intimidated by the volume of material that crosses your desk and computer screen each day? Is there so much to read, absorb, analyse, and retain but so little time?

If you could spend less time reading and more time comprehending the material sent to you, would that change your work life?

If the information explosion makes you want to run for cover, then power reading is for you. This system helps you get through your business reading in a fraction of the time it does now. And you won't just read more efficiently - you'll read with greater understanding and retention.
