A textbook can take an average of 25 to even 75 hours of reading using the traditional approach for reading and learning. PhotoReading allows you to cut that down to 1/3rd or even 1/5th the time. That is 5 to 25 hours to have the same or better comprehension.
PhotoReading isn't eliminating the time it takes to learn to do something like a matrix download. It shortens the time, puts you into control in deciding what and how much you want from the book. It definately eliminates time wasted on books that repeat information that you have learned from other sources. What I hated most about finishing a book after 6 to 12 hours reading was realising I learned nothing new. I already knew everything the author said from other sources and finding the one idea that I like and found useful meant spending more time trying to find the relevant pages again. They are never fully in one section of the book. Now that I PhotoRead books. I get those one or 2 new ideas first.
