    Photo Reading

    Has anyone heard of photo reading. It's a new style of reading where you learn to take a mental image of the page. It claims to be the natural way for us to learn. The founder also claims hes been clocked at reading over 100,000 words per minute. Ordinarly I'd say thats crazy and abunch of bs, but hes got a huge number of followers and the website and infomercial sounds convincing.

    Is it a method of teaching? Is it for children or adults?

    I mean, I do have a photographic memory but... it takes more than one glance to remember something. I'd be interested as to the methods of teaching.

    My guess is that he doesn't want to give away his methods, supposedly because he wants them to remain a secret (but probably because they are not practically effective).

    The reason this sort of thing is so hard to 'teach' effectively is that once a person has learned to read, they cannot really learn to do that all over again.

    I've been wanting to speed read for ages but it certainly isn't something you can do just with a few audio cassettes in your spare time.

    Got more info? I'm quite interested in this sort of thing.

    Everyone has a photographic memory. Some people just don't have film.
    Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
