Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Dan M
I just finished this book and it was fantastic help to my reading speed. I am a physician who always has a stack of reading, and this book deals not only with reading the stack faster, but also managing the stack.
The book has two main advantages. First, is that it is concise enough to manage and significantly improve in 10 days. Second, it has great examples to help you improve. Its hands-on approach allows you to improve quickly...

I am allergic to books that make big claims, and the title of this book did not look so promising. It was recommended by Julie Morgenstern in her book "Time Management From the Inside Out", and although I was suspicious, I did buy this book mainly because it was not too expensive.

Now, having worked through this book, I must confess: the book is worth every penny! This is simply a wonderful book that makes you read really a lot faster in only minutes a day. The title tells the truth!

I had the opportunity to read "10 Days to Faster Reading," by Abby Marks-Beale. I found it an excellent book, the main focus being on how to read faster, but she also touches on how to more efficiently and effectively manage other areas of your professional and personal life.
The book is very well organized and is very encouraging and upbeat. She constantly reminds one that because they are currently a slow reader, they do not have to remain that way.

I'm a second-year law student and I often have overwhelming amounts of reading to do. I was the typical word-by-word reader. Afterall, this is all I had been taught. When I realized it was taking forever to get through some of my reading assignments, I went looking for help. I stumbled across your book and it has helped me tremendously. I would say it doubled my reading speed. This is great, considering you cannot skim material in law school - catching on to detail is what it is all about.
