TEDx Talks
After a childhood speech impediment left him struggling to read, Jordan learned strategies from world leading speed readers to dramatically enhance his reading ability. Jordan now helps others unleash their potential to learn anything faster. Because he knew that spending hours reading books and watching seminars was not as effective as it could be. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

I'm a subvocalizer 😩

handsome and eloquent
Don't think his speech impediment is gone, I can hardly understand him, maybe it's his accent, idk, but great motivational video.
Victor Apeland
Cool guy. Bad audience.
Jeannie Jones
You are so fine!

From sixth grade to end of high school, some seven years, I read a book a day and the comprehension was so high. Now.... ok I am ready to reclaim this superpower once again. Harry, you got a new student. Let's go!
Without subvocalization I understand nothing.

Do speed read: Articles, Research Papers, online comments. Sometimes manuals

Don't Speed Read: Philosophy, Religious Texts, Poems, Tax and Law documents, sometimes manuals.

Choose what you wanna do with most novels, and some manuals.
You can read ALL the words in a book and still read a book a day. But that's a different technique. And to be honest, it takes a little more time. However, it holds more value than the Speed Reading technique.

And I myself am a Speed Reader.

Great advice.
I'm an avid, but slow reader. I have like 2000 books on my to-be-read list. and it grows all the time. It gives me anxiety to think I may not read all the books I want in this lifetime because I'm such a slow reader. I NEED to increase my speed 😭

very good
About Archie
Really enjoyed this. I have practiced some of these techniques and I do expect I read faster than average. Time to step it up with these fresh insights and additions. BTW, thank your mom for us.

Jeanne Geib
Don't do it, I find even tho I use a library it can get very expensive, like any other addiction!
Carlos Junior

Gotta admit, it is pretty ironic how he presented this concept to such a small crowd, to only be viewed over a million times on YouTube. Amazing.

Scrum: How to do twice as much in half How to Read a Book a Day | Jordan Harry 4 months ago   15:50

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Co-writer of the Agile Manifesto, Jeff Sutherland is one of the world's leading experts of organizational management. He'll explain how to be agile, not just in software development but in every business to disrupt the field.

A former US Air Force "Top Gun," Jeff Sutherland is the co-creator of the SCRUM process. This methodology, developed in 1993 and formalized in 1995 with Ken Schwaber, has since been adopted by the vast majority of software development companies around the world.

Jeff is a leading expert on how the framework has evolved to meet the needs of today's business. Realizing its benefits are not limited to software development, he has adapted this strategy to several other industries including: finance, healthcare and telecom. His processes are now widely used for managing challenging projects and hyperproductive development teams.

As the CEO of Scrum Inc. and the Senior Advisor and Agile Coach to OpenView Venture Partners, Jeff shares best practices with organisations around the globe.
