There is now more writing available on the Internet than the sum of all books ever written by millions of monkeys at millions of typewriters. Gird yourself for the coming Reading Wars with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a one-day, five-hour class at The Iris Organization (a $199 value). Classes take place at various locations; check Iris’s website for locations, dates, and times.
A nationwide provider of lightning-fast literacy, Iris has taught speed-reading courses to HSBC, one of Europe’s largest banks, as well as other financial and professional firms. Its courses can help students read up to two to five times faster and include strategies for reading technical material and computer screens, making them perfect for business professionals. Speed-reading is also great for students who have heavy reading assignments, as it provides an excellent alternative to hauling massive books at trucker speed, wheelbarrow speed, and crane speed. With your new speed-reading skills, you'll be able to fly through embarrassing backlogs of Twitter and Facebook updates, perhaps discovering to your surprise that your sister is married.
Iris is currently working with several public schools in Chicago to help students learn more efficient reading skills, and students at Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison have successfully completed Iris courses and now spend less time on textbook reading and more time on dolphin racing.

- Thank you very much for all your help this year. You truly had a significant impact on my productivity as well as many others in Ariel’s research department. You should feel very proud of your contributions to Ariel. Thank you again. – Jason Tyler, Portfolio Manager, Ariel Capital Management
