To conclude the study, McNamara noted that, "In terms of words per minute (wpm) spent reading, there was no difference between normal reading (M = 114 wpm) and PhotoReading (M=112 wpm)" (10). So why is it that so many people tout photoreading? In her conclusion, McNamara states that, "One aspect of the PhotoReading technique is that it leaves the reader with a false sense of confidence." (12). [3]

There are other forms of speed reading however. Usually the claims are exaggerated however.

If you're being serious, I think you need to see a doctor for mental retardation.

The average American adult reads prose text at 250 to 300 words per minute



Unless of course you mean 45 pages per minute then that would be determined by the size of the page, the difficulty of the passage, and the font used, for it to be considered fast reading. "Photo reading" is a "technique" for skimming the book really quickly then basing on the preview look at the important points spotted.

Ohhhh, I can photo read, now that someone actually cleared up and told me what it is
Yeah but about that 45 words per minute thing, the truth is I don't really know because I' never gauged myself before. Wait, so then what's the average time for reading a novel?
