Quantum speed reading (QSR) is a completely new technique for reading books without looking at the pages. It was developed in Japan and has been taught to both children and adults there for the last several years. Astonishing as it may seem to most of us who learned only to read books by reading a page at a time they can in fact be read by simply flipping the pages. Unlike the many well established forms of speed reading that are in existence QSR does not require the book to be opened at all. The book is simply held up in front of the reader's face and the pages are flipped rapidly using the thumb much like when preparing to shuffle playing cards. It is thus a truly revolutionary advancement in education.
The QSR technique is not solely about reading however. It can also be utilised in several other creative ways for problem solving and memorizing, for health improvement and stress reduction as well as for positive thinking and what can only be described as quasi telepathic communication with plants and animals for example. All of these extensions of the original QSR training have been fully documented and tested over the years in a great variety of situations with many individuals. This web site has been created to introduce QSR for the first time outside of Japan where there are now thousands of school students and adults using it in their daily lives to great benefits both for them and for society at large. It appears that using the right brain approach to learning encourages cooperation and harmony among people. This is surely something we can all benefit from.
Ms. Yumiko Tobitani, who is a teacher at Japan's renowned Shichida Child Academy, has been the leading light of this technique over the past decade. Her first book in English entitled 'Quantum Speed Reading' covers the development and practical applications of QSR in detail. Well known scientist and systems thinker Dr. Ervin Laszlo, who comments on QSR at the beginning of the book, has witnessed the children in Japan training at Ms. Tobitani's prep school. Imagine being able to read any book in any language! Imagine a new form of communication within your family or friends or colleagues. And if you can try to visualize getting information from the blank pages of a book that is specially prepared for QSR students. Parents and children alike all over Japan have reported a wealth of improvements in their lives and relationships thanks to this truly 'mind stretching' ability that sleeps within all of our brains. We hope that this web site will assist you in learning more about it and encourage you to communicate with us in Japan.
