Speed Reading is an Important Skill, but so is Speed Listening
Speed reading has been an important skill for ages, but as more and more books are available as audiobooks, so is speed listening.
I’ve said it before and will say it again, I absolutely love audiobooks. The great thing about audiobooks is that they take no physical space (other than your phone, iPad or PC/Mac that is) and that you can listen to them while driving/traveling… I would not recommend that you try to read a book while driving for obvious reasons.
But to acquire the information contained in the audiobook as fast as possible, you need to up the speed, luckily this is easily done with the Audipo player for iOS or even the YouTube player supports this.
At first it will take some getting used to too listen to audiobooks at higher speeds. After a relatively short time it will feel natural and you can up the speed even more. As with all things, the more you do this, the better you will get at comprehending information at higher speeds.
Sometimes, when at home I really up the speed of audiobooks (3x and more), but when I do so I really need to focus. So to be able to max my focus I use a headset to block out background noises and often I also use a sleeping mask to block out visual stimuli.http://rubio.no/2016/05/19/speed-reading-is-an-important-skill-but-so-is-speed-listening/http://rubio.no/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/AudioBook.pnghttp://rubio.no/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/AudioBook-300x300.pngKnowledge
