I've read a few chapters of the book on my friend's kindle and decided to buy it since it's well written and easy to understand. It gives examples and shows how our brains work and gives methods on how to acquire knowledge easily. There's plenty of useful tips available in the book and an overall good read. It's not too long and gives a great overview on helping you understand the mind and easily absorb concepts.

I really enjoy Pete's writing style - he goes straight to the point but gives you the what, why and how. If you are a lifelong learner like me, you will benefit from the techniques discussed in this book.

This book contains very valuable processes. I will be recommending it to many people. It engrossed me because I could relate to something in every chapter. In learning my profession I basically did what the chapters outlined, however, I did most of the steps by instinct. I could have used this book of instructions 40 years ago. I probably would have gotten smarter faster. Thank you for writing it.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe book is well written and the information is very useful.

I was introduced to Peter Hollins’ through his book, The Science of Learning. I found it both interesting and useful. I wondered if the information in this book would be the same, simply “repurposed.” It isn’t. While it has some of the same principles, the book is exactly what the title says, Accelerated Learning for Expertise. And, again, the information is very useful. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to become an expert.
5.0 out of 5 starsKnowledge is the foundation for gaining expertise in a particular field.

I liked your to the point writing style with rules and principles that are relatable to my own personal/business experience. The 80/20 rule is an off-shoot of Paretto's Law. Basically, identifying the vital few versus the trivial many that I used with incredible success back in the 1970s. The technique I used was called the ABC Inventory Control Method. The expertise I gained applying this technique put me heads and shoulders above my peers. I also like your musician's example whereby playing music bars slower eventually leads to the mastery that practice makes perfect. Finally, your insights have given me the confidence to launch an affiliate marketing project that I look forward to monetizing in the near future. I call it "Awesome Windows Software." It will take me some months to get it off the ground since it requires a website. But I'm game to give it a try! Thanks again for the inspiration and new found confidence to undertake a project of this scope and magnitude.

I'm a brute-force learner, coming at a subject from all angles. This is one of many books I've read on this subject.
I gained from Hollins' perspective--especially the method of research he teaches. If you've never read a book on the subject of learning, there's a ton here that'll help you. And even if you're a veteran learner, there are still some gems in this one. Recommended.
Questo libro riassume in modo molto chiaro e conciso ciò che serve per diventare, ed essere percepiti, come esperti. Spiega nei primi capitoli come apprendere velocemente. Poi si focalizza sull'expertise. Super consigliato.
