I took speed reading in high school, many, many years ago. It's a really handy thing to learn, and I use it all the time still to this day. It's really helpful when you need to skim through material and still need to get the gist of it all. I don't remember the name of the program that they used to teach us back then, but looking over some of the ones they have out today I think they're just as good. (Who knows, they may even be better?!) It's a skill that once you learn it, you will always use it. The only time I don't apply speed reading is when I'm reading a novel for pure enjoyment.
