To help mark the end of the Chicago teachers strike, Howard Berg, “The World’s Fastest Reader,” is conducting a speed reading seminar.

On Saturday, September 22, Howard will give a full-day seminar in Oak Brook, Illinois, where he guarantees to double the reading and learning speed of anyone who attends. For Chicago-area teachers who are tired after spending days walking the picket line, the speed learning course will be an enjoyable event that will also provide them with the opportunity to learn how to do speed reading.

Teachers are not the only ones who will benefit from Howard’s innovative course. People from all walks of life—including highly intelligent business people who want to cut back on how much time they spend each day reading emails, trade journals and other materials—will gain from spending a day with The World’s Fastest Reader.

As the economy continues to struggle and unemployment rates remain very high, Howard’s help could not be any timelier. People who read faster have been shown to be far more effective and valuable in their line of work. Reducing the amount of time people spend reading each day will allow them to focus more on other tasks, which in turn will increase not only their productivity but quite possibly their paychecks.

As Howard explains in a blog on his website, he has developed a unique and effective way to teach people to dramatically increase their reading speeds.

“You are the kind of person who is interested in improving reading speed,” he noted in the article, adding that as the Guinness Book World’s Fastest Reader, he has discovered a one-of-a-kind way to accomplish this goal that is markedly different from traditional approaches for increasing reading speed.

“Most speed reading programs rely primarily upon mechanical drills for increasing reading speed. You are taught to use your hands to move your eyes rapidly across a page of text.”

While this method conditions the eyes to follow the hand at an ever increasing speed, and does tend to increase the person’s reading speed, Howard said it can also create other issues, especially in the area of comprehension.

Howards’s approach relies on the psychology of reading to increase both reading speed and comprehension. This method, he said, allows people to slow down when needed without losing their ability to read quickly.
