Speed Reading articles

Tim Ferris, a well-known entrepreneur and a voracious learning machine, has mad a nice speed reading article about speed reading.
Other great resources about speed reading:
Some people may argue whether speed reading works. I myself used to apply Paul Scheele's Photoreading Mind System to technical books. It did not give me measurable results.
So after I did a research on Photoreading, I read that NASA made some interesting tests. The report can be found NASA Photoreading report.

Bottom line:
-Does photoreading work? yes but not for technical stuff.
-Does speed reading work? yes, and for technical stuff: use slow reading, because comprehension is important.
