The following is a recommendation from the personnel director to the president of Acme Publishing Company.
Many other companies have recently stated that having their employees take the Easy Read Speed Reading Courses has greatly improved productivity. One graduate of the course was able to read a 500 page report in only two hours; another graduate rose from an assistant manager to vice president of the company in under a year. Obviously, the faster you can read, the more information you can absorb in a single workday. Moreover, Easy Read whould cost Acme only $500 per employee-a small price to paywhen you consider the benefits. Included in this fee is a three-week seminar in Spruce City and a lifelong sbuscription to the Easy Read newsletter. Clearly, to improve productivity, Acme should require all of our employees to take the Easy Read course."
