Summary

Have you ever wondered how those freaks of nature known as “human machine” do what they do? How they are able to learn everything they read, heard, or see within minutes? 

Well, there is a method to their madness! And in this book, I am going to spill all the beans.

We all have infinite potential and ability hidden in the deepest recesses of our brains: the ability to absorb an endless flow of information from the world around us. The author of this book, a highly successful psychologist, has developed a unique six-step framework for rapid skill acquisition that has already helped hundreds of people from all walks of life to improve their approach to learning.

With the help of this book, you will be able to bring out the inner child who once was curious about the world and apply the natural drive to learn in this modern world. Here, you will learn not just how to absorb the essential information you need to make your way in this endless evolving day and age but tricks on how to retain it and recall it whenever needed, even if it is years later.

No matter what you need to study, analyze, or research, there is a way for you to acquire it, without the added stress and anxiety that is often associated with study. In this book you will find how to:

  • Create a more positive image of how you should learn
  • Gain a more intense level of concentration by using your five senses
  • Reduce the amount of time you have to spend studying with the proven six steps to faster learning
  • Tap into your real brain power in order to speed up the learning process
  • Discover your real intelligence and use it to facilitate what you learn
  • Reinforce that learning so that it will stay with you for years to come

Once you have learned to unlock the secrets already hidden inside of you, your learning will become a more enjoyable experience that you will look forward to each day. You’ll learn faster than you ever have before, and you’ll be happy doing it.

If you’re a student preparing for an exam or competition, an employee dreaming to climb up the organization ladder faster, a professional who simply wishes to dazzle clients with expert knowledge, or a caring parent who is concerned about your child's future career, then this book perfectly fits you.

So, stop dreading the amount of time you need to acquire new information, buy now, and catapult yourself into a very promising future!

I really enjoyed this book

I really enjoyed this book because it provided exact suggestions on what one can do to add in learning. I don't need theories just concrete examples and this book provided just what I needed! I will share these ideas with my two children... I wish I knew this in college!

Trouble book with no real knowledge

I have just finished the book.

I have just finished the book. Just the technique for remembering names alone makes the book worth listening to. In the process of listening to the book, I attended a wedding abroad. I was able to remember almost every single name of the person I met on the trip and at the wedding (with more practice, I'm sure I'd get everyone). I'm already noticing improvements in my day to day memory solely as a function of practicing the day to day techniques. I wish I would have picked this book up sooner!

I found this book very useful!

I found this book very useful! I was willing to put in the time to memorize the techniques required to make it work. Some of the people complaining about the book are doing a big disservice to those who have never been exposed to these strategies.

Found this book to be very helpful. The strategies

If you want anything related to the following, this is not the book for you. It DOES NOT HAVE: ratios, proportions, percents, three-dimensional geometry, coordinate plane and functions, types of numbers (whole vs. natural vs. integers, etc), algebra, etc. {And this is just the middle school math stuff.}

I had different expectations

not what I expected. struggled to make my way through this. there is too much explanation of how the brain works and what learning is at the beginning which prevented me from focusing. I just really wanted the study tips.

The author has done enough research to create this book and the research is very well rounded from various aspects, from memorization to learning language, preparing for exams, etc. I would recommend it for students and life-long learners alike.

Accelerated Learning, and you’ll listen prettymuch

Accelerated Learning, and you’ll listen pretty much the same thing. Choose your learning environment wisely, set up a routine, find tools that will help you to tap into the knowledge quickly, and use emotions to help you to remember. They may also warn you to identify the learning traps that many people fall into and find a way to avoid them entirely.
