This is not intended to promote Ed Strachar. It’s post here because I have listened to Ed Strachar’s audio programs on tape years ago. His Reading Genius Program is phenomenal & it works.
You’ll find other experts claiming they have better or difference ways to improve reading by a method called “Photo Reading”. Photo Reading Is better than “speed reading” but Photo Reading is just another way of use similar methods developed by Strachar. As an example, Photo Reading says that average person reads 250 words per minute or 1 page of text. Photo Reading says you can go to 25,000 words or 100 pages per minute. Ed has been doing this for many years. He has documented cases of people, mostly children, reading at 150+ pages per minute. Yes, it all sounds unbelievable but seems true based on what information I have studied for years. According to Mr. Strachar, what happens when you read at these very high speed levels, your brain will see the text and form a motion picture in your imagination! That’s where Ed says it can take you…cool!
You may ask…what if I read 1 page per minute now & I learn to do this but I only get to 10 pages per minute? Duh…wouldn’t that be nice to increase your reading speed 10X just with trying something new!
Who is Ed Strachar?
A well trained former electronics engineer in the US Defense industry, he successfully invented a highly digital computer chip used in modern aircraft, missiles and satellites.
Ed created a multi-sensory reading approach that really allows for people to get fully absorbed and focused on their reading. Combining the teachings he learned from Chess Grandmasters of the former Soviet Union, Eastern and Western Spiritual practices to help people relax, modern brain research, accelerated learning methods and modern mental training methods applied to reading, yielded tremendous results in schools with both advanced and challenged learners, kids and adults, professionals and students.
Reading Genius® now has well over 100,000 students, of which 20,000 Ed has personally trained, including people at institutions such as the US Force Academy, The US Naval Postgraduate School, Xerox, Hewlett Packard, National Semiconductor, Youth-at-Risk organization and many others worldwide.
Ed Strachar offers a visual speed reading course entitled "Reading Genius". Reading Genius doesn't just show you how to read faster or even to remember what you read - It teaches you a whole new way of learning! Reading Genius shows you how you can benefit from new brain research performed over the last 25 years and has revealed some astonishing breakthroughs:
• The discovery and use of brain wave technology
• Left/Right Brain Technology
• The use of music for a constructive learning environment
• The use of mind-mapping and better recall techniques
• The inclusion of simple mental training methods
• The enhancement of your imagination
• Physical exercise
Applying the latest research on the brain has enabled Ed to create a speed reading course that allows anyone to utilize their expansive brain power to achieve levels of performance they typically would not be able to otherwise. Understanding the limitations as well as capabilities of both left and right brain hemispheres allows this program to target and employ the hemisphere that is the most effective for reading at accelerated speeds. The program has exercises for the student to become proficient at achieving these states for speed reading.
