The Fastest Readers in History
史上最强的速读者
The average reader can take in about 250 words per minute.
一般人平均阅读速读为大约每分钟250个词
Really fast readers--at least those competing in the Mind Sports Olympiad--read much, much faster. The champion of the 2005 competition, Anne Jones of England, read 26,152 words in 17 minutes. She comprehended 56.7 percent of what she read--leading to an adjusted 869.2 words per minute. (The third-place finisher, meanwhile, took in 545.4 words per minute, but had an 83.3 percent comprehension rate.)
真正的速读者,至少在智力奥赛中的竞争者,能读更多更快。2005年的冠军是英格兰人安妮琼斯,在17分钟内读了26152个词,她在保持以569.2个词每分钟进行阅读的同时理解率达到百分之56.7(同时,又一个说法,当理解率到达83.3%时的阅读速读为每分钟545.4个词)
Going back in time, the British philosopher John Stuart Mill said he could read faster than he could turn pages.
以前,英国哲学家约翰斯图尔特米勒说,他可以读得比翻书还快。
But even Mill, if he wasn't exaggerating, would probably pale in comparison to Kim Peek, who not only can read two pages at the same time, one with each eye, but has also memorized some 9,600 books.
其实米勒可能并不夸张,以金皮克来参照,此人不仅能同时阅读两页书,一个眼睛看一面,而且还能记住9600本书。(吹牛吧!反正不上税,哈哈)
Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man was based in part on Peek, who was born with some significant brain differences, including an enlarged head, a damaged cerebellum, and a missing corpus callosum, the bundle of nerves that links the brain's left and right hemispheres.
达斯汀霍夫曼在雨人里的角色就是部分基于皮克的原型,他生下来就和很多人的大脑有明显不同,包括很大的脑袋、受损的小脑、错乱的用于连接左右半脑间成束的神经形成的胼胝体。
Reading isn't Peek's only gift; he's also a genius in 15 disciplines, including history, literature, geography, music, numbers, and sports. Though he didn't learn to walk until he was four, and he still can't dress himself, his mental capacities are actually growing, which is why scientists at NASA are studying his incredible brain. Like a lot of us, they'd like to understand how it works.

阅读不是皮克唯一的天赋,他还有15个学科的才华,包括:历史、文学、地里、音乐、数字、运动等,虽然他直到4岁仍不会走路,但他可以自己穿衣,他的心智能力确实得到了成长,这也就是为什么NASA的科学家要研究他难以置信的大脑。他们想知道它是怎么运作的。
