For what it's worth...

A doctor friend of mine took a speed reading course at Murray College decades ago.

According to him, what he got from it was the greatest gift he has ever received. I'm not sure what your reading is like Chris (I'm not you) but this guy definitely experienced a change in his learning. He was a slow reader and average student...but became a neurosurgeon and attributes his getting through med school to the new way of reading he learned.

I don't know how relevant this is...but interesting nonetheless.

Yes to a certain limit.
I did a short 3 week course at uni and was able to read faster but not to the levels and speeds that were promised. I tend to be faster when I am highly focussed and also on a time deadline. The course was based on Evelyn Wood's ideas.
We did a lot of 'practice' reading which meant pushing the eye along the page using your finger to avoid re-reading and internal sub-vocalizing. Also we experimented with using different tracks with the pointer like fiure of eight patterns and two or three lines at a time as well as 's' type movements down the page.
