  • Basic reading skill.
  • A willingness to read -- no matter your current level.

Description

In this free course, you're given four keys that will unlock the latent brain-power residing within you.

So much of our lives depend upon reading.

The reason this is so is that reading facilities and amplifies the transmission of knowledge -- and it is by means of knowledge that humans not only survive but prosper and flourish. In this way, knowledge is the fundamental thing you must possess in order to get the things you want from your life.

This course will teach you the vital importance of reading; it will also provide you with the information you need to develop faster and more efficient reading skills while, at the same time, cultivating deeper levels of comprehension.

This is not, however, a speed-reading course, nor a memory course. It's a series of bite-sized lectures, based upon real-life seminars I've given to students (all ages and all skill-levels) so that they might streamline their reading -- right away.

"Fun, interactive, and inspiring!"

I give you my word not to bore you or waste your time.

I've spent all my adult life reading and writing, and the thing I love most about books is the thing I love most about people: their inexhaustible variety and capacity to enrich our lives in ways undreamed of.

At no point does any human -- no matter how erudite, no matter how well-read -- hit a limit on how good a reader she or he can become. To learn to read is to ignite a spark which contains within it the capacity to light up the rest of our lives -- forever -- "and the person who stops studying merely because she's finished school is forever hopelessly doomed to mediocrity ... The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge," said Napoleon Hill.
