From Elite Minds:
Speed Reader-X is designed to make learning speed reading fast and easy. The system consists of 10 lessons. The lesson objective is explained before the lesson begins. You then practice the lesson using the software. As your eyes scan the text on the screen you are un-learning bad habits and learning new, good habits. You click the Next button, words flash and you begin to quickly overcome the roadblocks you were taught in school. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.

I encourage anyone who need to improve his reading speed also his reading comprehension(yes man, they are related), I liked especially their documentation, where they explain, how speed reading works, and how to use the software, I like Eite Mind, because they have something based on science, and they are type to the point.

Lessons are clear and to the point. I like it to be able to load my favorite materials for practice. Be sure to go with the new module (not mentioned here) which can train comprehension and speed in parallel. I'm more than satisfied for this price.
The CD version is great but I have gone to online version, as I don't want to wait for the software by mail. There is a full review of the online system (which also talk about the new comprehension module) at http://www.speedreaderxreview.com
I saw the infomercials but was skeptical. Then I saw this demo which led me to the company site. I am a believer now. I thought it was a crock and was looking for a reason to slam it but after 2 weeks my reading speed has more than doubled. I wish I had tried it sooner.
The lessons and documentation were good but the bonus dvd was hard for me to use on macosx. It has a pc version only. The actual speed reader x software works on pc and macosx, but the bonus disk only works with pc. I used the demo with emulation but it did not work on the ebook disk, could just be me maybe someone else had better luck. Still well worth the price.
jake20201, the only products you have ever reviewed on this site are Elite Minds products or their direct competitors. You tell a personal story about how wonderful this is with only a minor beef. I'm sorry if I'm incorrect, but I would like to point out that all of these things match perfectly the MO of Michael Ford, self-promoting sock-puppet artist, and producer of this product. Props to you, because I have seen other websites that quote this review, who thereby assume that this product is legitimately effective. However, I believe it is important that the reviews be from trustworthy sources and not sock-puppets created by the seller, and would like to establish your legitimacy if possible. It is a violation of this site's policy to "misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity."
