Publisher's Summary

In our rapidly changing and information-driven society, the ability to learn quickly is the single most important skill. Whether you're a student, a professional, or simply pursuing a new hobby, you are forced to grapple with an every-increasing amount of information and knowledge. We've all experienced the frustration of an ever-growing reading list, struggling to learn a new language, or forgetting things you worked so hard to learn.

  • Speed reading with high (80%+) comprehension and understanding
  • Memory techniques for storing and recalling vast amounts of information quickly and accurately
  • Developing the cognitive infrastructure to support this flood of new information long-term

You'll even learn how to apply these skills many aspects of your everyday life, from remembering phone numbers to acquiring new skills or speaking new languages.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Hard to follow without hardcopy book and syllabus.

The author keeps referencing things not accessible through audio. Kind of pointless as a book to listen to in the car if references homework in a syllabus that cant be viewed. Also references websites, and TedTalks.

Just a start into improving one's learning...

Not bad content, but the poor format. The book introduces several techniques designed to augment reading speed, comprehension and memory, including the memory palace techniques where you encode some facts into a mental object "housed" in a room where the spatial location is mapped to a context of information, in theory increasing likelihood of retention, and retrieval.

Like arithmetic, all of the introduced techniques need to be practised heavily to become functionally useful. The speed reading section seems familiar and probably works, but definitely not for reading technical material, or any other information-dense text.

The book is basically a checklist of things you can try, and a template of a workout plan, but if you are motivated enough to find and assemble that yourself, not worth the purchase.

Repetitive, not straight to the point

When the author got to the point, I was already bored. I'm not saying its bad, the style is not for me.
