If you’re being honest, you’ve probably always been secretly — and irrationally — jealous of speedy readers. Who isn’t?
Back in elementary school, there were always a few classmates who zoomed through a dense textbook chapter and got to start recess early. The rest of us were stuck decoding a confusing, run-on sentence while our milk carton got warm. Now those kids are co-workers who answer emails quicker, read more news, and are arguably more productive throughout the day.
Le sigh, it’s just not fair.
But what if it was possible to train yourself to become a speed reader? A course called “Become a Speed Reading Machine: Read 300 Books This Year” promised to teach you to do just that.
For years, instructor Brandon Hakim has been dedicated to teaching the lessons you haven’t learned — and probably never will — in school. With 67 lectures and over three hours of content, Hakim explains why the traditional reading tricks you learned at school aren’t built for speed and teaches you easy tips and tricks to apply to your everyday reading. The idea is that by the time you finish this class, you’ll breeze through books without missing any pertinent information.
Of course, enrolling in this class alone is no promise you’ll devour 300 books in 2018 — you’ll need to carve out time to read. But if your New Year’s resolution was to read more, this course is a great place to start.
Right now, you can enroll in this online course for $9. Compared to its typical asking price of $195, this class is a steal. Like most great things, it’s available for a limited time only.
