But if I put 40 seconds (10 for skiming and 30 for scanning) per page, I wont be faster than normal, since I then got to speedread it. Or did I missunderstand something about the skim/scan part?

What's the point of following this video's techniques if you won't be able to comprehend as much... you need subvocalization if you want good comprehension.

Motivated after watching this video, I almost read everything quickly except for my manager. I am talking about her on her back coz I know she will never come here.

For non fiction books. Maybe ok. For fiction, autobiographies just enjoy it. Speed dies not matter. You will get faster, the more you read. Try 100 pages a day and after a year you will be faster.

The answer is easy. Quit your job. Go to college. Get a loan
Don't go to class.

Anyone can skim read or learn to skim read and what he suggests at the end is more or less just slightly fancier skim reading. Comprehension is everything and there's little point reading a book if you're ignoring the words in it. Other than that, a good speech that was educational on an important topic.
Rayson Choo
This is really amazing. Thank you for the tips!
You couldnt just read faster. . . . . .And picking up a general jist a day of a book is bullshitting
Carleton Coleman

What if the book I'm reading doesn't have subheadings and/or diagrams? How am I supposed to do step 3 and 4?
Raymond Yeong

Scrum: How to do twice as much in half How to Read a Book a Day | Jordan Harry 2 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.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
