There are so many unknown phenomenas and misteries in the world that we as human being still can not fathom. I also don’t guarantee any outcome. For any comment of feedback write to me at sawahid@gmail. There actually a lot of other technologies that I have encountered during the research of this report. Before I go .

There are always new things to be read at work and at home. I found out that this method has been used by for hundred thousands of people successfully. megazines. and even can be 10 times faster. It takes more time just to flip through pages of books that contains that many words. The computer flashes 20 pages of contents in one second to the participants. 700. Even if you spend 1 second per page it will take 350 seconds which is equivalence to 5. .something that enable you to read at least 3 times faster.dzikry. After that the participants took test to test their comprehension of the flashed contents. books. And using this silver bullet people has been able to actually read up to 700.000 words per minute. how can people read that fast ? For example. Yes. Let say if some one offer you the silver bullet…. But when I researched through the source. 700. Some of the testimonials come from high regarded people in self improvement arena such as Anthony Robins and Jack Canfield.The Amazing Reading Technique Page 5 of 15 Copyright © 2006 sawahid – www. then you also don’t have time to actually catch up on your reading. and internet? If you are like me and thousands of other people. then maybe you can read up to 2000 words per Introduction How fast do you read? Few hundred words per minute? Or since you just attended those speed reading seminar. this article has around 2000 words in a page.8 minutes. when I first heard this story.. Actually this experiment is done using computer screen at Cray Research. With this “common” speed from few hundreds to few thousands word per minute have you been able to go through all the information that you want to know in the newspaper. I thought it was full of crap also. forget about actually try to understand and memorizing the contents. Left alone all those leisure readings which we wish have time to do.000 words per minute and comprehend 75 percent of the contents.000 words is equivalence of 350 pages of written material.

On the contrary our subconscious mind has been demonstrated to be able to absorb 10 million bits of information at one time. Speed reading is to speed up the common reading method that is going through our conscious mind.dzikry. Most of the abilities of our mind lie in the subconscious area that not that many people can control. So what is this method called ? It is called PHOTOREADING. not speed reading. But PhotoReading requires leap of faith because we are handing part of the process to our subconscious mind – which we don’t know. It teaches you how to read more words at a time. What I found? What I found out is that in order to be able to take in this much of information to our brain we have to use SUBCONSCIOUS method. Why we have to use our subconscious mind ? This is because experiments have indicated that our conscious mind only able to goble seven chunk of information at a time – that is why we group our phone number into 7 This make me interested to learn more about the system. .The Amazing Reading Technique Page 6 of 15 Copyright © 2006 sawahid – www. and how to scan through the printed lines faster.

It is easier for people to understand the underlying principle in speed reading because it is just an incremental enhancement to what is normally done.

Off course even the simplest thing in the world can be very hard to do.dzikry. There are 3 steps: 1. This is where the “Photo” part in PhotoRead® comes from. Off course this has to be done in stages – since we don’t know how to tap into our subconscious mind.The Amazing Reading Technique Page 7 of 15 Copyright © 2006 sawahid – www. and try to recall either using our concscious mind or subconscious mind. Simple does not mean it is easy.Getting ready 2. .com/blog How to PhotoReading?
