Read 3x Faster By Not Reading At All

Leo Trottier:

But really, if you think about it the goal isn’t really to read faster. It’s to take in and understand information more quickly. We developed writing and reading not because we wanted a faster way to communicate, but because we needed to record information. Though reading has traditionally been the best way to take in knowledge, this has been an artifact of our need to store it, not because it’s the best interface.

As someone who reads rather slowly, I'm a huge proponent of listening to information -- and doing so rather quickly.
