Ron created SuperReading in 1995 to help technical readers in San Jose, CA (Silicon Valley). As technology was changing by the week, their reading loads were growing exponentially. They needed a real solution that allowed them to accurately absorb large amounts of highly technical information quickly.
It took 6 months to develop. The trials at Hewlett-Packard were highly successful. Within a year SuperReading was also being taught at Apple, IBM, AMD, Compaq, Sun, Cisco, Fujitsu, Philips and many more companies.
Since then Ron and his wife Deryn have been helping many other companies, schools and thousands of families across the globe transform their academic and career performance by transforming how they read and how much they comprehend.
Yesterday after the class I remarked how my daughter
Valerie was reading a book in her room last Saturday afternoon. You smiled and said that was great.
What you don’t understand is that this is a 15-year-old girl who’s never picked up a book in her life! She was glued to the book and so happy to be reading.
I thought to myself, who is this academic kid and what have they done with my daughter?
Whatever you’re doing in that class it’s working. She loves to read books now and prefers it to staring at social media all day. My jaw is on the floor. I also have tears in my eyes. This means the world to me. I can actually see a bright future for her.
Just don’t tell her I said that! “Oh mom, you’re SO embarrassing!” Thank you.
Amazing. Thank you.
Reading before the SuperReading class was not an enjoyable experience. My mind would wander, and I would find after reading the same paragraph, even the same sentence, over and over, I still didn’t know what it was I had read.
Reading material was piling higher and higher. In my field, technology changes daily and the need to
keep current is a necessity.
Now with the tools I have acquired through this class,
reading is no longer a “chore.” I remember what I read and can even recall what I read days and even weeks later. It really works.
Before taking this class, I didn’t enjoy reading because I could never comprehend much, so it was like a waste
of time. I would usually just read little articles from
magazines and newspapers that I had interest in.
Now I am able to quickly go through any material and read through the page as if I’m skimming and pick up about 80% of the material in much less time.
I am able to read through several chapters in a
book and pick up all the necessary information for
tests in minutes, instead of hours because I am able to
focus on the material and didn’t have to reread a
paragraph 10 times because my mind wandered.
SuperReading saved me a lot of time. I feel smart when flying trough a book and people are watching in
