The work of the U.S. psychologist Samuel Renshaw (1892 - 1981) became famous for a short period of time during World War II when he taught soldiers to identify enemy aircraft in a split second. He generally worked with fast-reading and enhancing the latent ability of the mind. He believed that most people used only one-fifth of their available mind-power to process information. By using methods of flashing pages he produced students who could read upwards of 2,000 words per minute.

Robert A. Heinlein depicted the technique in several of his works, including Citizen of the Galaxy (1957) and Gulf (1949).
