What You'll Get
When the last dinosaurs died out in the early 1700s, it had nothing to do with disease or space debris but instead involved a genus of reptiles too slow to read the comprehensive water-toxicity reports published by leading specialists. Today’s Groupon remedies the past with your choice of a speed-reading workshop from the Center for Lifelong Learning for $55, up to a $299 value.
Stave off extinction with exceptional literacy skills that will keep you well informed in a fraction of the time. Reduce War and Peace to a mere short story, and decrease the dictionary to a random free-verse poem of alphabetized rigmarole. Through the influence of extensive research, Dr. Jackie Alan Giuliano and the good folks at the Center for Lifelong Learning have cultivated a workshop designed to awaken your brain to its greater potential and boost the words you read every minute as well as the percent yield of retained knowledge. Workshops are available as two-day sessions (a $299 value). One-day sessions (a $199 value) are also occasionally offered; check the schedule for updates. The results can give you the turbo-charged skills to read two to six books, pamphlets, reports, and cookie fortunes in the time it used to take you to read one. Your bored brain will awaken with enthusiastic vigor, since it no longer goes into hibernation mode when you pore over endless passages and chapters of information.
Renovate your mind into a haberdashery of enhanced vocabulary and literary knowledge, and impress absolutely everyone with how quickly you read their memoirs, recipes, blog posts, and kitten collars. Or, get this Groupon for college kids loaded with homework—it’s an information world we live in, and it’s the steadfast bookworm who gets ahead through sponge-like acquisition. Make your head a bear-trap for comprehension, and find out how many bear facts you can trap in a matter of seconds. Also, imagine if you could read every Groupon 10 times faster.
Three Yelpers give the Center for Lifelong Learning 4.5 stars:
- Taking this workshop does present me with one problem: devouring books at four times normal speed gives me an unfair advantage over my competition. – Dan M.
- I started the weekend reading a little over 200 words per minute, and by the end of the weekend I was reading nearly 1000 words per minute! – Lani M.

About Center for Lifelong Learning
Akin to declaring that the sun is big, saying that Jackie Alan Giuliano loves learning is a giant understatement. The president of the Center for Lifelong Learning, Dr. Giuliano has embraced all forms of knowledge throughout his career, including a 20-year tenure at NASA, a PhD, and artistic endeavors in digital photography and the construction of dreamcatchers. Through extensive research, he and his team at the center have cultivated speed-reading lessons designed to boost the number of words students and professionals read every minute and increase retained knowledge by revisiting the way the brain processes reading. They have helped those with learning challenges such as dyslexia build confidence and equip all with the skills to excel at school, work, or while rapidly reading instructions to successfully diffuse bombs.
