Probably not what you're looking for..

I'm guessing you're probably here to find a book which can help you increase the speed and comprehension of your learning. This book is a brief and academic overview about effective learning but offers very little in the way of practical techniques to increase your ability.

Excellent study tips for students.

This book could simply be called ‘Study Tips for Students’. Short & concise, & full of useful new ways to study & learn. But! If you’re looking for a quick fix, you won’t find it here. There are no short cuts to authentic learning. I recommend for all students of any & all subjects & levels.

My new favorite book!

Wow! Thinking outside the box to change the world has been laid out perfectly by this genius! Passion, great story telling, and his roots in knowing that his life’s mission is to change our world for the better makes Vishen an incredible author, and human. He is on FIRE, and I’m already applying his steps of success in my life. Get this book!

Brilliant ideas, well presented, dry pacing

This book is packed with ideas for learning more efficiently. It highlights various techniques for input and review of new information and explains how to do them best. very clear explanations of why the techniques work. based on scientific evidence busts the myth of "learning styles and intelligences" and I'm glad it does. gives solid examples clear and engaging writing. a chapter near the end on "teaching" was really confusing since the narrator switched seamlessly between the viewpoint of the student and that of the teacher with no indication of which role he was playing. His reading is clear, but really dry... just plodding along at the same pace without pausing to let important concepts sink in - even through new chapters and titles. something I couldn't tell if he was reading the title of the next chapter, or continuing a thought from the current one. 3 stars for performance.

No new pieces of information.

This audiobook contained nothing I hadnt heard before. although most of the information it contains is pertinent to good study habits, it didnt give me any new leads on how to grow as a student. i expected more of a walkthough on better time management and study habits to keep your brain alert, but i dont feel that I recieved such. I may listen to it again to try and reform my opinion on it, but a first listen through left me less than inspired.

Act on it

The tips are backed up by the latest scientific studies. They are actionable and easy to understand. If you are looking for practical advice and don't have time to dig into bombastic theories, this is your next best read. I thoroughly enjoyed it!💕

Good-ish

Don't get me wrong there are some decent parts to this book but I think I was looking for something else. A handful of the suggestions given would probably be helpful as long as you practice the discipline to do them. And that's basically the take away from this book, you have to be disciplined and organized in order for any of this to work.

Better/more content, but less engaging than others

I listened to this book after listening to "Ultralearning", and I enjoyed it. The content was more comprehensive and covered things the other book missed, but wasn't as entertaining. I still recommend it.
