Interview - Turbocharge Your Reading Speed with Abby Marks-Beale

Every now and again, I interview interesting businesspeople and post the recordings in the Personal MBA Insider members-only website. Today, I posted a brand new recording that I think you’ll find incredibly useful.

Abby Marks-Beale is the author of the Personal MBA-recommended book 10 Days to Faster Reading, as well as The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Speed Reading.

In this interview, Abby and I discuss:

  • Simple techniques to immediately increase your reading speed.
  • Getting the big picture before you focus on details.
  • The importance of setting a purpose before you read.
  • Priming your mind to find the information you’re looking for.
  • How to be an active, mindful, and conscious reader.
  • Reading online vs. reading offline.

I hope you enjoy the interview, and discover a few new ways to learn what you need to know in record time!

Did you know both of my books are available as audiobooks? Think of them as very inexpensive course versions of the book. They're perennial bestsellers on, and The Personal MBA was recently honored at the Audie Awards, the "Grammys" of the audiobook industry.

Even better: you can get one of my audiobooks for free if you don't yet subscribe to Audible. Click here for details.
