Limit Points of Fixation
Your eye must be still in order to comprehend information. As you read, they jump quickly from point to point along the line you read. Unfortunately, much of our reading is redundant. For example, the average reader will read, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness..." with the following point of focus: was, best, times, was, worst, times, was, age, wisdom, was, age, foolishness." Unfortunately, this is incredibly redundant. Your peripheral vision takes in much more than two or three words. So on the first reading stop, it picked up, "It was the best..." Unfortunately, the second stop picked up, "was the best of times..." Rather, one should read the phrase selecting: best, worst, age, age. With this simple adjustment, we reduced reading time by roughly two thirds.
