It's proven useful for my mid-career reboot
on January 9, 2017
I've been working through these suggestions daily. It's proven useful for my mid-career reboot. I haven't been in a formal academic setting for quite some time, and the structure and organization of this approach is working well for me.
The book is highly opinionated, based on the author's 25 years of experimentation. It builds the kind of foundation that is easy to build on. The basic idea is better concentration leads to the ability to memorize. Rational work can build on this foundation of memorization. Speed reading depends on the foundation of memorized learning and concentration to allow the student to explore a domain more widely. The book continues to build.
If you're looking for a quick fix, this book is not for you. This book is for building a strong intellectual foundation, integrating knowledge, recalling information more quickly. It's a lot of work, but I find that it's producing strong results.
