First -- you're listening to a book instead of reading it because you wan to "read" faster than actual reading. So, for anything you wan to learn (or want to burn down your learning bucket list), you learn by doing it. Based on his experience and research, Josh has come up with 10 principles for learning enough to enjoy.
1. Choose a lovable skill
2. Choose the target performance level
3. Learn one -- only one -- at a time.
4. Deconstruct the skill to sub skills
5. Get the tools to help you start practicing the skill asap.
and 5 more.
Key emphasis on the getting to doing and acquiring skill, tips creating the environment to sticking to it makes all the difference in this approach. First few chapters will move to action -- a great success for any book by any measure.
The book also details Josh's successful application of these techniques to learning Yoga, web application, Go, touch typing, ukulele and windsurfing. I treat this as bonus.
Here's an example.. Not all of them are really validated: Don't use a company name starting starting at end of alphabet, like Xylinx. Use a verb -- I googled... I xeroxed! Someone forgot to fix/explain/proof read.Another one: Sinatra's test is stated as a valid test!
Here's the book: Human beings want to acquire things, bond, learn and defend things they've acquired through doing these three. There are variations in the dominant force within each person, family, group, culture. THE END. You already knew this.. didn't you?
