Do you struggle to understand or remember what you read?

Many readers suffer from poor comprehension but there is an easy solution...


Which of these problems do you want to beat?

  • Slow reading speeds
  • Poor understanding when you read
  • Reading without remembering
  • Being bored when reading
  • Frustration when reading
  • Unable to understand what you read
  • Knowing that other people see more in the words than you do

These all have a common cause and it is called Comprehension. Comprehension means understanding what you read. Not just saying the words, but truly understanding the meaning and being able to explain what you have read to someone else.

Memory and comprehension are directly linked. If you do not comprehend what you are reading, it is impossible to remember it.


You already know you need to learn how to speed read, but which one of these best describes why you need to learn how to speed read today:

  • Improve performance in school
  • Improve performance at work
  • Self improvement, personal satisfaction
  • Impress friends, spouse, or co-workers
  • Build self esteem
  • Develop a special ability very few others have
  • Keep a sharp and active mind
  • Increase your ability to provide for your family
  • Read through that stack of books or magazines that never grows smaller
  • Get ahead at work or school instead of lagging behind
  • Improve reading skills you thought were limited by a condition or disability

All of these are within your reach and all it takes is 10 minutes per day.

There is a deep satisfaction in being able to speed read AND understand what you read.


Comprehension and Speed Reading work together. When your brain is no longer bored while reading, it becomes easier to understand what you are reading. Speed Reading can improve your comprehension when it is done correctly and that is how it is taught in this online course.


Ultra Mind Improvement Studio

Comprehension and Memory Improvement

The Ultra Mind Improvement Studio is a new method of training which includes full classes on improving your Comprehension and Memory.


#1 Comprehension Training System

Do you understand everything you read? Do you find yourself reading to the end of a paragraph, then you look up and have no idea what you just read? The problem is your comprehension.


According to The National Adult Literacy Survey, National Center for Education Statistics: Nearly 50% of the Americans surveyed cannot read well enough to find a single piece of information in a short publication, nor can they make low level inferences based on what they read

According to a report in the Journal of American Medicine, Emory University/UCLA study, reported in JAMA, 12-95, 41.6% of American patients could not comprehend directions for taking medication on an empty stomach. Another 26% were unable to understand information explaining when their next appointment was scheduled, and 50.5% could not understand a standard medical consent form.

According to ACT(The independent, not-for-profit organization American College Tests, Iowa, 2005), Only Half of ACT Test-Takers Have College-Ready Reading Comprehension Skills and they go on to say:

"Reading skills are critical to a student's success in college courses across the board, but particularly in the areas of social sciences and humanities. First-year college students who don't have adequate reading comprehension skills are likely to struggle in courses such as history, sociology, literature, business and others that require extensive reading.

About half of ACT-tested 2005 high school graduates lack at least some of these reading comprehension skills, based on ACT's new College Readiness Benchmark in reading. ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are scores that indicate a student has a high probability of success (with "success" defined by ACT as earning a "C" grade or higher) in specific entry-level college courses."

Many people do not even realize they have poor comprehension. They assume everyone reads the same as they do, or they read in a mechanical way that prevents them from retaining any information. They can read, but they do not remember anything and they do not know what the real problem is. If you read and do not understand, you can discover new methods to comprehend what you read. Many schools once had a belief that you Got-It or you didn't when it came to comprehension. We now know that to be false. Comprehension can be taught. Unfortunately many people were never given the tools they needed to read properly. They do not know the fun and excitement of reading a novel because they were never shown how they could understand what they are reading.

Discover the secrets to good comprehension:

  • The Secret to Understanding - Breaking out of the mechanical reading jail
  • Learn how to Visualize
  • Why you use Rubber Stamp Reading methods and how they destroy comprehension
  • Importance of Purpose and Focus and how to make them automatic
  • Using Vocabulary and Structure to improve Comprehension
  • Pleasure reading and how to make it pleasurable
  • Inference - the secret to understanding what is not said
  • Dealing with Confusion - find the door to understanding
  • Good Reading Habits - how to read the right way
  • Parents - How to teach your children reading skills even before they can read(and why you must start now)

This is the audio introduction page for the Comprehension lessons. This is a separate training system from the Speed Reader-X system and is a complete course in itself. Enroll Now and try it, you have nothing to lose.

You may have been a victim of a poor school system. In the past, many school systems and teachers believed that when it came to comprehension, you got-it or you didn't. Today we know this is simply false. Comprehension can be taught and improved even for adults.

The last thing a poor reader needs is a book explaining how to read. My program contains no filler, no long boring stories, no obscure teaching theory. It is a carefully chosen, simple strategy approach that gives you the step by step tips you need to improve your reading. The classes are divided into easy to digest chunks with clear and simple objectives that yield immediate results.

This course benefits both good readers and poor readers. Good readers are only good at reading some material and when they run into more difficult material they freeze up. They do not know what to do. They have hit a brick wall because they are accustomed to reading and understanding certain material well, but when they encounter material they cannot as easily comprehend, it stops them cold. Then they have no idea how to fix the situation and the result is frustration and they eventually quit trying to read anything outside their zone of comfort.

Even good readers need to know the reading strategies that improve comprehension so they can apply them when they encounter more difficult material.

This course can be used by adults, children, and parents who want to help their children improve comprehension. Many adults do not discover these methods until college and some not until retirement. A full life without being able to enjoy reading only because they did not know the simple techniques that make reading fun.

Today schools dump more and more work on students, while at the same time complaining that the student's reading ability is below normal. They then do nothing to fix the problem except dump more work on them. We need to fix the reading comprehension problem, then students can more easily deal with the work they are required to do.

This comprehension course is designed for both speed readers and non-speed readers and will benefit you. This comprehension system also has special areas for parents who want to help their young children improve reading skills. You can teach children good reading habits even before they start reading. This will give them a great advantage when they begin learning the mechanics of reading.

Each lesson includes an audio instructor explaining the methods you can use to improve your comprehension. Optional comprehension tests are also available so you can test your new skills and see a graph of your progress.


#2 Vocabulary Training System

It does not stop there. I am also offering another new module, Vocabulary training. A strong vocabulary is important for reading, both regular and speed reading. If you do not know what some common and semi-common words mean, you can never understand sentences that contain them. This system will introduce you to new words, test your vocabulary skills, and expand your understanding of what you read. These are not randomly selected words or hard words no one has ever heard of. These are words that are common but that most people do not understand well enough to use in conversation or assume a meaning from the context which is not always accurate.


#3 Memory Training System with Audio Instructor

This i s not the simple memory games you see in books or the silly computer games that make you think you are learning when you are really just clicking images. No, this is a serious memory training course.

Have you been introduced to someone and then you forget their name by end of the conversation. Do you forget their name by the time they shake your hand? Some simple memory tricks can teach you how to lock names into your memory forever.

There are two parts to your memory. Short Term and Long Term. Your short term memory takes in everything and if it is judged as unimportant, it is thrown out and forgotten. Only important events are passed into the long term memory. You can train your short term memory to selectively move information to your long term memory so you can recall it later. This is why people forget names, numbers, and important events. Their short term memory never passes the information to long term memory where it can be recalled later. You can learn simple methods that will trick your short term memory into moving important information to your long term memory so you can easily recall it when you need it.

If you want to improve your memory this is the easiest and fastest method. Discover methods of memory improvement that you can apply every day.

Each of the 10 lessons starts with the instructor discussing memory improvement methods. You then take a quick memory exercise to practice what you have learned.

Each exercise is uniquely designed to improve your image memory, your ability to remember numbers, remember names, remember dates, remember lists of words, remember what you see in movies and paintings and more.

This is a full memory course, with instructor, tests, and graphed results to show your progress.


#4 Brain Teasers

Brain teasers are not only fun but they can help you improve comprehension and memory. That is why they are included in this course. The brain teasers selected will show you how to pay closer attention to what you read and to extract details. Many people experience confusion and problems with comprehension because they let their mind fill in blanks that they should not. They make assumptions about what they are reading that later conflict with the story and this causes confusion. These brain teasers will quickly show you how to filter what you read to only the facts that are presented while at the same time letting your mind explore options that are not in the written words. Don't worry, it is a lot more fun than I make it sound.




There is more to reading than comprehension. There is a little known method for increasing your reading speed up to 5 times! The average person reads around 200 to 300 words per minute. Those who know these secret reading methods can read 600 to 2500 words per minute with full comprehension.

This method is well known in Australia and other countries and only now are High Schools and Universities in the USA starting to offer this new reading method.

How much more can you get done at college or work if you could read twice as fast? Three times faster? What if you could read Ten times faster and remember more!!

The average person reads around 250 words per minute which is the rate you speak. Speed readers often double their reading speed by lesson 3.

Once a person has learned how to speed read, they usually find their comprehension improves as well. This happens because your brain is no longer bored during reading and it is actually excited and active when taking in words.


Speed Reading means your brain no longer becomes bored and tunes out what you are trying to read.

You may have seen other systems making outrageous claims like reading 10,000 words per minute. Hog wash! That is not real speed reading, that is skimming and it does not work. Perhaps you have seen the systems that claim you can look at a page and...somehow...magically...know what it says through a photo reading method. Again, that will never work and that is not speed reading.

Real speed reading is a method where you re-train your brain to break the old habits you were taught in third grade. Those reading methods were fine when you first learned to read and you needed to know the mechanics of reading. But now, those same methods only slow your reading down. You must learn a new way to visually take in words without that little voice in your head slowing you down. An automatic way of reading that becomes second nature and is much faster.


Does the Speed Reader-X system include eye exercises?

No way! Those are nothing more than gimmicks that waste your time. If you use a computer and read then you already have mastered all of the eye movement skills you need. I would not waste your time with filler games that do nothing but make you think you are doing something productive. Before releasing Speed Reader-X I conducted extensive research into what worked and what did not. I tested every system I could get my hands on and developed my own methods too. My research has shown that watching objects bouncing around a screen does nothing to train normally healthy eyes.

I put together Speed Reader-X to be a sleek and to-the-point system that starts you learning real speed reading methods immediately without a lot of filler and fluff to make it seem like something it is not. It is a program that teaches you how to speed read and it does it as fast as possible, without gimmicks, without fancy animations that do nothing productive. This system jumps into real speed reading instantly, without wasting your time.


D. Smith sent me this email after using Speed Reader-X

I received Speed Reader X for Christmas and I must say that it is the
best speed reading program I have tried at an affordable price. I
have tried them all, Mega Speed Reading, Photo Reading, Evelyn Wood,
you name it, I've tried it. My first experience was with the Mega
speed reading program. Double to triple your reading speed sounded
great...SOUNDED GREAT. Then I realized that my original reading speed
was only 100 words per minute. Way below average. Doubling my
reading speed would only put me at 200 words per minute, still below
average. The entire 6 hour course included only 16 minutes of useful
information. One piece of information came from the advertisement and
not even part of the program. (See what your reading like a movie.)
All other programs produced similar results. Plus measuring your
speed was a pain. This was back in the mid to late 90's. A few years
ago, I did an internet search and found that all the 100,000 a word
promises were a scam. I discovered speed reader X and your story
basically restated my story. Everything I went through was stated in
your background. The price was also affordable for at least a daring
try. (not more $150 risks that fail.) Amazingly in your short 10 page
manual, you included everything that I discovered through research
over the past 10 years about speed reading and more. I was glad to
see that you provide the option of 10,000 words per minute throughout
the practice drills. I am also glad that you can customize your own
text while taking the practice drill so you're not reading the same
passage each time you practice.

My request: I wish that you could customize the text that you are
actually taking a test on your speed in as you do when you practice at
different speeds. I do not feel that I am getting an accurate reading
speed when I am tested on the exact same reading passage each time I
want to test myself. I find that I am not reading it but I am just
going back over what I almost have memorized. If you could somehow
make a patch or add on to the program so I could pull in new text to
test my reading speed on, this would be the best program in
existence, (Believe me, I've tried them all.) Be able to customize
the way you can customize and choose text in the practice speed
drills. This addition would be greatly appreciated.

Michael Says: Good news D. Smith: The new online version allows you to use your own reading material in the Practice area where you can create a custom lesson, plus we are adding new Comprehension, Vocabulary and Memory exercises.


Are You Too Dumb To Learn?

No! High intelligence is not needed for Speed Reading. Anyone, of any intelligence level can learn the speed reading methods. If you can watch a movie and understand what is going on, then you can speed read. Speed reading uses the visual centers of your brain instead of the vocal or sub-vocal centers which do not process information as fast as visual centers. You already have the ability, you only need to learn how to tap into it.

Many people find that speed reading is the key they have been seeking. Slow readers are sometimes right brain dominant. That means they have trouble with reading skills because the left side of the brain is what most people use to read. By using the speed reading methods which utilize the right side of the brain, they find they can unleash abilities they did not realize they had. Reading becomes easier and even fun.

Speed reading is for everyone, no matter what you may think your intelligence level is.


Monica Landon Says:

I bought your program for my two children. They are doing fine in school but I wanted to give them any advantage I could. When I saw the difference in their reading abilities after just a week I was so impressed that I tried the program. Each night after they were in bed I was practicing and I cannot express what a difference it has made to me. I used to throw away magazines that I didn't have time to read, did I mention two kids who has time for anything, but now I can cover magazines and books at up to 600 words per amazing system.. I have recommended it to several friends.

Monica Landon Salt Lake City UT

Michael Says: Thank you very much for the nice words Monica and I wish your children the best. You have already given them a great advantage because by starting early, they will gain the most benefits from speed reading as they enter their high school and college years. Keep practicing the methods you learned and your speed should continue to improve.

Greg Samuels Says:

Hi, I'm using SpeedReader X 5.0, and I like it. ... Just at day 3, but I'm practicing at 5,000 wpm and reading at 1000 or so.

Greg Samuels Chicago IL

Michael Says: Wow, I love being able to help people like this.


Oscar Parada of NJ says

I'm an IT professional working for the USGA and I was working on someone's PC when I noticed that they had this software called Speed Reader X. I asked the user about the program and if it actually works. The user works in our Rules and Regulations department so they have to go through a lot of documentation and she told me that she goes through the documentation very quickly because of the fact that she knows how to read quickly AND RETAIN the information she just read.

She recommended the product highly so I am purchasing it because I do plan on going back to school. Knowing how to speed read will give me that edge. I can't wait to try it.





Are These Real Online Classes?

Yes! These are real online classes, not just ebooks or static webpages. Each lesson starts with an audio presentation that explains what you will discover about speed reading and how you can gain the most from the lesson. The audio guides you easily through the lessons so you will know exactly what you are doing. You can also read along with the lesson introduction.

This is a much deeper experience than you could ever obtain from a book or a simple software trainer. After the audio introduction, you can practice the specific speed reading technique you learned using the interactive visual lessons. Each lesson is custom designed to improve your abilities over the previous lesson. The next page shows your progress in a graph so you can see how much your reading has improved. The lessons are interactive and you can start/stop them anytime. You can repeat lessons and take speed tests anytime you want as well.

If you want more control or need to move more slowly, you can use the Practice area where you can set your own speed and even select custom material to read.


What can this mean for your future, or your child's future?

If you start speed reading now, how much will it help you in 6 months, or 1 year? What about your children. What kind of a difference will it make in their entire education. How much will being able to read faster than their classmates put them ahead of everyone else. What kind of an advantage will it give them in school and in life. What kind of an advantage would it have given you in school if you could have read ahead in your textbooks instead of trying to keep up. What if you could have read through assignments in seconds instead of re-reading them two or three times in half an hour. If your reading skills had resulted in higher grades then would you still be working in the job you have now? Would you still be paid what you are paid now?

It is not too late for you or your children. These advantages can put your life on a new track. How much is it worth to even possibly change your children's grades from C's to B's or from B's to A's. What would a gift like speed reading be worth to your children or yourself if you could pick up a book and read it anytime without it feeling like a chore or burden. What if your children were excited when they were given a reading assignment instead of whining about having to read even a few pages. Would your children someday look back and recall the gift you gave them which they use every day when they read?

If you are one of our valued Senior Citizens, then you know how important it is to keep your mind active. Speed reading is the best way to keep your mind active because it re-trains your brain to become more active when reading so that you can read more, faster, and with less effort.

What would speed reading be worth to you if you could learn more about your job, or even learn about a new field you are interested in which could lead to a higher paying job. Do you want to move from a $30,000 per year job to a $50,000? or $100,000? Top executives do a lot of reading and many have turned to speed reading to help them stay on top of their reading and on top of their industry. Information jobs are the highest paying jobs out there and they require top reading and understanding skills. Wouldn't you like for your child to graduate college with higher grades so they could start out at the top in a position the company was anxious to fill with a capable individual instead of at the bottom in some small company that hired them just to fill a seat and answer phones?

Reading ability can cause major changes in anyone's life. It can mean higher grades, higher paying jobs, the ability to move into a new field or study an area that you have always been interested in but never had the time to pursue.

What is it worth to you to make more money in your job, to change to a career you enjoy, or to give your children an advantage they will treasure for the rest of their life?
