Оценок: 32271 | Просмотров: 837329
After a childhood speech impediment left him struggling to read, Jordan learned strategies from world leading speed readers to dramatically enhance his reading ability. Jordan now helps others unleash their potential to learn anything faster. Because he knew that spending hours reading books and watching seminars was not as effective as it could be. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Reading fast just to say "I read a book a day" isn't exactly a goal of mine, especially if you have to skip entire chapters because they don't "stick out" to you. I really don't like this 80/20 rule.

How do you get the layers you had on photoshop to appear again after you try to edit again from Lightroom in photoshop? Easy sense: I’m using Lightroom Then I edit in photoshop Save (cmd + W) Go back to Lightroom I have all my edits I decide to go back to photoshop All my layers are gone and all I see is my background layer? How do I see all my layers???

I wouldn’t ever want to try and drown out the voice in my head when I read, it makes me feel like I can do my part in keeping the writer’s voice alive, no matter how long ago the book was originally written. Reading is meaningful and valuable. I agree that comprehension needs to be more taught and encouraged among young students especially, I don’t think speed reading is at all the answer.

In theory works great, but after trying to learn these techniques I can only "fast read" simple texts such as novels or newspapers. For complex texts like philosophy books or scientific journals and textbooks these methods don't work
Mark Sebert (17 дней назад)
Its rehashed info, I tried speed reading. The best in can do was 900 wpm while retaining little to nothing. I find trying to stop subvocalization was more distracting. Its better to just read when you are fresh and focused. Come at with intensity and you will retain more and enjoy it more.

Is this strategy mainly for non-fiction publications and textbooks as opposed to fictitious novels? (I understand how the first three points can apply to fictitious reading; I am more curious about the steps of 10s/pg skimming and 30s/pg scanning.)

Thank you for your great speech! I’ve been a very slow reader(even in my native language), so your advice was really helpful for me. Btw I have a question. Are your methods applicable to reading novels or philosophy books? I thought it seems hard to use the methods when reading those kinds of books.

Joseph Read (26 дней назад)
What if I can't be in a state of relaxation? My library has computers in and that means everyone is on the computer, chatting really loud and being all-around annoying. This makes me read very slowly because for half of the day it is impossible for me to focus. But everything else is valid and I am not complaining. This has been a great help and wonderful video!

Irénée Kaminuza (1 месяц назад)
I know this talk it well intentioned but it's utter bs. Reading a book a day? Really ? Perhaps the scope of books you want us to read is those in the self help category... I would like to see you to read Karl Marx's Das Kapital or John Pilgers Freedom Next Time or Darwin's origin of species or Daniel Kahnemans thinking fast and slow.. Read those in day and you will have my respect ... But also it's not just about reading ..it's about thinking and engaging with the material that you are reading .. it's about comprehension and formulation of new insights .. that doesn't happen in a day

Helped me out a lot. Especially the part of 'why'. Most times I would start a plan of reading books weekly, but you figure that you get stuck not because of books but because of the type of book. My major take away basically was it's important to understand why you're reading that particular book since that's what'll motivate you to keep at it. All the best.

Romain Labat (1 месяц назад)
The problem is... This doesn't work for most books I read. If you use this method to speed-read through a perfectly structured text, full of wit, innuendos, puns, you might just be unable to understand anything (or only the superficial part) if you don't go back and forth between the sentences, if you don't take some time to understand the double meaning of some sentences, the references, the echos to other parts of the book... The same happens with highly abstract contents, such as mathematics or philosophy. You just cannot read it this way. I mean, of course you can read all Kant's works in a week, and brag about it, but it is much more interesting to read one work, slowly, to take some time to understand every mechanism, all subtle elements, and to finally have some knowledge (which you won't if you don't take time to make sure you understand correctly).

EarthHound (1 месяц назад)
I used to read a lot in grade and middle school. I especially remember reading the Bluford series and how interested it got me in the concept of shared universes in literature and not just comic books. I always wanted to write a series like that that has the same setting but sort of leapfrogs focus of the characters in which in one book, a character is in the background, the subsequent entry is all about said character and his/her struggles. I'd love to read more but I'm too busy writing and drawing my own stuff and with my social life. I really wish I had a sort of Groundhog Day power so I could have all the time in the world.

Demian Terentev (1 месяц назад)
My problem is that whenever i begin to improve my concentration by being an active reader i get exhausted really fast because i have to think all the time. And speed reading does not improve comprehension but rather impedes it. It’s good for skimming through, but if you find a passage you really need to understand, there is no way but reread it a couple of times. Also, i’m not sure what kind of books this guy is reading a book a day. I am usually reading 500 page books, so even if only 20% of the book was useful (which, again, is usually false if you are reading a quality book) it amounts to 100 pages, which is not easy to get through in a day unless you dedicate three to four hours. For the reasons above, i did not quite liked the video. Seems like it ignores problems in order to present its subject as something very easy, which is genuinely misleading.

I actually read a lot. But I think I read in the wrong way. I remember that, when I was younger I started reading Harry Potter. It was amazing. Everything was magical, and it felt like I was in the story. But, now, it just seems I just read words without emotion. I know exactly what is happening, but, in my brain, I don't react to it... Does someone have the same "problem"? And, if you've already had it, how did you "lose" it? (Sorry if my English isn't perfect, it's not my native language).
