Photoreading is hogwash.
And you can only see clearly information that is at the center of your eye. (i forget the name of that part of the eye)
I have read the books, applied it as much as I can , read every single thread on their forum during at least a whole year and even have attended a photoreading seminar in Bruxelles (Belgium) with a Certified PhotoReading Instructor.
Sad to say but nobody was able to activate any book during the seminar (we were 6 persons: 5 women and I was the only man…)
Up to now, nobody has been able up to demonstrate the so called photoreading activation phase like in the video promotion.
I’m even willing to pay generously any person who can demonstrate it with a book of my choice in front of me.
Iv have even talked with a second french Certified PhotoReading Instructor and shared my doubt about the activation phase.
Her testimonial was (translated from french) not as shinny as the ad for a certified instructor:
I have a friend in Briançon writing autobiographical novels. While we take a drink, I photoreaded one. Later, I told him about his book, what I felt, the main character: he was shocked! But-and I stress this - I have not felt like saying things so remarkable as that.
I had things to say, this is a first point, a lot of things to say but I do not know what I was going to say it was being built in as.
Moreover, as I have said, I practice many direct learning: I photoread a book without activating.
When I do that before attending a course, I see a clear difference: I feel a sense of gratitude: ideas, examples, arguments are familiar to me. You can do this experiment: Go to a conference in photoread three or four books on the subject before: you’ll be impressed.
The only thing that I have learned through the course is to read with a clear purpose.
