“ When one reads too quickly or too slowly, one hears nothing.” Blaise Pascal
Do you know anyone who can quickly grasp the content of a book or report?
Nine times out of 10, it isn’t talent.
They learned a methodology. They learned how.
Do you forget most of what you read?
Do you have a hard time remembering and applying what you read?
Did you know that there are reading best practices?
A few decades ago, the author learned to read faster and better at 14.
He found a book on the subject while attending every week’s reading hour at the school library.
To enjoy that hour that he and most young men hated at the time,
he used his new skill to read a whole fiction book within the period.
Today, he shares the techniques and tips he has learned since.
In addition to you,
I dedicate this book to parents and teachers that teach kids to learn to read with their love and patience.
—–This is no ordinary book. This is a book on how to read other books.

About the Author
How I accidentally learned to read faster and better
A few decades ago, when I was 14,
we had a one-hour free reading session
at the school’s library.
An hour I would have spent elsewhere.
Free reading session meant that you could pick whatever book you wished,
and you wouldn’t have any homework to do about it.
I found that ¨hour¨ very annoying and unpleasant.
But what I did, like many of us to make it more bearable,
I picked and ¨read¨ comic books.
Because we were many,
it wasn’t always easy to get one that was even slightly interesting.
But one day,
quietly, sitting and looking almost anywhere
I saw one of the librarians reading at the speed of light …
That was the impression I had. He was reading a paperback
at a surprising rate.
I watched him for a few minutes.
I was impressed.
The rules at the time were very severe.
They didn’t want us to walk around constantly.
So, there was a price to stand up and ask this guy how he could read so fast …
So, I stood up and started walking.
I probably had walked halfway, 10 feet,
when my professor started walking in my direction.
I knew very well why.
I started to say, ¨I just want to ask him how he can read so fast. ¨
He signaled me to return to my place and followed me there.
He had a quick look at my comic book.
A few minutes later, while I brooded on my chair,
thinking about additional homework, the teacher would give me
for not having respected the rules.
I felt a presence on my left.
There he was, the librarian,
standing with a discrete smile.
He lightly deposited a book on the table on my left.
He said nothing and walked away.
I looked at the book. The title was ¨Learn to read faster¨ by a French author.
The fact that the librarian brought me a book and smiled
meant that I could do it too if I read and learned what was in that book.
I am sure this was the first time I was in a hurry to read a book.
I started reading it right the moment he gave it to me.
At the end of the hour, I was already a faster reader.
The following weeks,
I would pick a novel from Agatha Christie,
murder stories type of book, and I enjoyed it.
I could read the story at a speed that felt like
watching a movie unfolding in my head.
Today, decades later o wrote
the book Velocity Reading so
that others can do the same.
