A good practical overview of learning

Ralph did an splendid work by sharing his experiences on learning strategies. The science of accelerated learning starts from the beginning and how we must shape our mindsets to be geared for learning, fertile as he puts it.

This is not one of those kindle spamming books that sound like infomercials about whatever topic they purport to be an expert on that particular day of the week. This book by Ralph Castle is the real deal and teaches you how to really learn in an accelerated manner. It's how to process info, condense it, make it stick, and use it.

I would say its an awesome book on learning, designing for learning, and creating a good mental and physical environment for basically what is accomplishing your goals. As the author notes, learning is what unlocks your life, though it might not be what gets you there, that's okay. Relays lots of helpful info on the memory structure, how to use that for your own purposes, and how to really get the most out of what you come across and not forget it instantly.

Unlock your true potential, learn everything!!!

The science of accelerated learning starts from the beginning and how we must shape our mindsets to be geared for learning, fertile as he puts it. The author, Ralph Castle, talks about the three types of factors that can make or break us: subconscious psychological, conscious psychological, and environmental. It was a great breakdown and the further breakdowns at the end of each chapter with the takeaways were priceless. This book is 2 legit to quit, I swear.

Lots of Good Stuff Here

Needed a refresher in learning because I wanted to get better at my hobbies (guitar and swimming). Lots of good stuff here. Particularly enjoyed the bit about how 80/20 applies to language learning and becoming an expert in something. The bit about language learning reminded me of how Ralph Castle claims to have learned how to tango, by learning what the important parts were and mastering those first. Makes sense to me.

Also really enjoyed the chapter about learning/teaching and how they further each other. There is just a lot of clarity that is lost if you don't have to teach, even yourself, and as Ralph says, to find your blind spots!

Learning Is Fun

Excellent book by the author once again! I have used some of the techniques before and they do work. There are also techniques I have not used before and will try it in going forward. You bring the message across in an easy understandable language. Thanks Ralph!

Optimize brain function & memorization techniques

This is a book about learning how to learn. It’s a great collection of both conventional and unconventional rapid learning techniques organized in an easy-to-digest manner. The book is full of nuggets that can be put to immediate use. Topics range from simple nutrition advice to optimize brain function and memorization techniques to exam cramming and remembering names and faces. The book is in a “just enough information” format and doesn’t go deep into technical details of each learning skill, but I think that’s the point.

For example, in the note-taking section it talks about advanced techniques like shorthand, but you are not going to learn the mechanics of how to do shorthand writing here. I thought the author was pretty forward thinking by including fair and unbiased assessments of tools like music and binaural beats. Favorite quote? “Unless you master the art of getting on with your work even when you don’t feel like it, no amount of accelerated learning techniques can help you.” Thankfully, there are some tips on how to overcome this problem as well.

The topics of memory methods are splendid

The subjects of the methods of conversation and recollection are excellent, but it takes practice as with everything. With these approaches I've found myself learning a lot more and will continue to find other fields and subjects in which I can work.

Most people can take from it

Some of these ideas are far from original, but the are packaged in a good way that there is something most people can take from it. Though the last half hour is back to back classical music (presumably to play with studying) and is not really explained what it is meant to do - just lobbed in there for good measure with Colin Rose's voiceover / hypnosis style affirmations. You have to be open to learning for this to work for you... It's no silver bullet for being an expert . It's a good starter for lifelong learners to focus their efforts.

A clear map for learning

If you're drifting along in your career or you think you're done with education then you need to listen to this audio book. Some of it is a bit of a pep talk with the positive thinking being a little trite these days, but it is worth sticking with it to get some insight as to how you can go about mastering knowledge to become an expert.It is vintage Brian Tracy with the 'you've got the power to become the best in your field' which is possible with this and I think some level of higher than average talent. But I feel the listener can gain something of a good game plan to approach learning more and 'raising their game'. Even if you're average at something you can rise above this level and fulfil your potential. Well this what I intend to do with the ideas from this book.
