Hi Felienne,

It is understandable to find cognitive topics in the book's index, and the titles make sense. Do you have any personal (or third party) about improving speed reading? (li.e.: improving pull request analysis, or any other skill).

Regards,

German

Do you mean speed reading of code or of text?

I think I have mentioned this here earlier this week, but do you really want speed reading? Are you risking missing something, particularly if natural language text has more redundancy allowing readers to understand it more easily?

Yes, I know it is not the best practice, however under certain circumstances, the workload is more significant than expected, and speed reading could be a workaround.

And that's the core of my question. Do you have any successful experience with it?
 
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
