A few gems but not worth the money

There is a lot of extra fluff in this book to find the substantial information. It is not really for an adult self directed learner

Very Controversial

I have been enlightened in some way, and also challenged by the idea in this book. Yes I know there are something wrong or loophole about education in general that don't meet our modern reality.

I love to listen a few times to grab more about this book.

Already a self learner? This is only a refresher

Some content was mundane. Other content a good reminder on how to self learn. I didn't learn anything new. So if you already self learn, you could skip this book.

Must Read!

Great book, for people of all ages. Perfectly tows the line between motivational and practical without being too verbose. Just what you would want out of great self-improvement literature. My only wish is that someone would have put this in my hand earlier in my life.

Fantastic!

I can't wait to listen to this again and again. This is a short audio but has many motivational pieces throughout. It is just what I needed as I guide my oldest though self-directed homeschool in the high school years. Also inspired me to keep up in my passions.

Great content - proper lenght.

It nails it just right. Gives a ton of useful and specific advice on how to succeed in turning ourselves into self-directed learners.
It achieves this thru some really concise statements and proper-lenght examples
