Speed Reading Does Not Work

This article essentially proves the statement they make in their title.  While moving your eyes occurs during reading it is not the source of slow reading.  Speed reading is the bunk everyone likes to think it is, if you think you are speed reading what you are really doing is skimming and inferring a lot from your previous knowledge.  In addition the test that prove comprehension are rigged, and those apps just flashing one word at a time are not helping you read faster, they are just making it harder to comprehend what you are reading.  Yet another example of you can do it quick or you can do it right.
