The BrainRead Book

BrainRead® – Effective speed reading – read like the Swedish!

The role reading plays in our professional lives has changed over the years. We are so overloaded with it that it has become a time sink and a major stress factor. More than half of professionals read so many emails, reports, and other texts that they are no longer able to process all the information.

In Sweden things are different: Swedish children – and adults – are among the best readers in the world. This is primarily because they watch television with subtitles, which trains them to read whole phrases at a time instead of looking at a text word-by-word or letter-by-letter. This is also the basis for the BrainRead® method, which allows readers to increase their reading speed in a very short time.

In this book, author Göran Askeljung presents a way to learn effective speed reading based on the latest research findings on the Scandinavian phenomenon of literacy: descriptive, informative, and illustrated with many examples and exercises. On the website, there are many more exclusive exercises and reading tests online and even an App which helps you to train your eyes in speed reading like the Swedish!

Several years ago when my sweetheart and I first got together, he was undeniably a better reader than me. If I ever tried to read over his shoulder he would spend more than half of his time waiting for me to catch up. Now that I’ve done the BrainRead program, that trend has been reversed: I am the one waiting for him to turn the page. It has also helped me professionally, of course, but nothing is more satisfying than not only being able to snuggle up and read together, but being the one to say, “Come on, honey, turn the page!”
Thanks, Göran!
