Publisher's Summary

This audiobook will make you smarter, able to learn faster, and think better. It has the best methods to raise IQ and optimize academic performance. It reveals the methods used to get straight As at Stanford and 99 percent on medical school exams. 

Learning methods such as SIRS, flashcards, word play, word associations, mnemonics, walk and talk, shadowing, neurogenesis, angiogenesis, mitochondrial biogenesis, brain glycogen, verbal skills, thinking strategies, condensed notes, how to read a book, speed reading, and much more are discussed.

Awareness is the first step to improving, then finding someone who has already succeeded, and then adapting those methods and modifying them to suit one's needs.

I would read this 10 times.

the author went to Stanford, and scored in the 99th percentile. He shows you some of the best ways to learn. one is "the magic bathroom" Now mine. I keep books in my bathroom in a box for whenever I need to use it, instead of my phone ill read a book.

Your brain and body are one, so keep your brain healthy. It works best in the morning after a good nights rest due to your spinal fluid covering your brain that helps wash out our toxins that build up during the day.. (that's why you feel like crap before bed if you don't sleep) Because our brains and body work as one like our ancestors hunter-gatherers, it is good to exercise (walk and talk) like the ancient Greeks did when they taught.

Doing things faster also helps you learn faster(speeding up audio books). Flashcards are one of the best ways of learning as well as teaching someone else. Also keep notes (and then take "compressed notes" oon your notes you took) I learned its helpful, so do this in highlighter. Using a colored one to mark things by a specific category. having a high IQ doesn't make you wealthy. rather a FIQ for financial intelligence. lots of life advice. dont waste money on college for the things you can take an online class for. (I learned how to take apart and repair phones online by myself) Get familiar with how money works if you want a get-rich book. i learned stock market at a young age. you can have an average IQ and be wealthy. some doctors were rich and went broke over a divorce. One of the fastest ways to get rich is to marry into money.(obvious but not obvious enough)

Gosh I would really like to hangout with the author. authentic, down to earth guy.

Outdated “knowledge” plus terrible composition equals waste of a free Audible credit

I would have never downloaded this “book” if I hadn’t received it for free. Scatter-brained dick-wad gives a creepy recount of his college days in the format of a rough-draft outline recorded on a cellphone. When he runs out of things to ramble on about, he very abruptly calls it a day and ends the “chapter”. Poorly thought out, poorly constructed, poor information, little to nonexistent teaching, and creepy side-stories disintegrates all the credibility that the title proclaims. I couldn’t even finish it. Nothing to see here. Move along.
