Hello anons. I've recently found out about speed reading, and honestly I'm not sure of what to think.
The concept itself is very fascinating, since being able to read entire books in a flash could be extremely useful in a perspective of time saving, but I wonder how much comprehension you are actually giving away. In my case, the faster I read the less I understand, not to talk about memorizing, so I have to say that I'm quite skeptical about speed reading in general.
What do you guys think? Is it worth it? Do you use it frequently? How did you learn it?

If the sum of an infinite geometric series turns out to be negative, does that mean the series diverges? For example if I have sqrt(2)^n, where the series starts at n=0, then I have 1/(1- sqrt(2)). Is it OK for me to assume that it diverges because my answer is negative? Is there a rule that says this, and if so, what is it called?
