This book talks about ways we can utilize to increase our learning speed. What I really liked about this book is that the focus is on hard work. I love that there is no magic pill. To paraphrase David Ramsey, Study like no one else so you will learn like no one else. This book I feel works well with Outliers. The amount of focused hours you put in = your success. That is not to say there were not a lot of helpful tips to effectively approach study. I sincerely enjoyed this book and recommend it.
