My Mark: 10/10
I have no doubt this book will make my top 5 this year. Brilliantly written, incredibly well organized, it is full of very well documented methods to be more productive. It is very SQUARE, very efficient driven. The goal is to go faster, better, cleverer! And yet, it give also some room to be more CYRCLE, be creative so that we adapt it to our needs ... and still continue to improve.
Frankly GENIUS! A must-read for everyone who wants to level up and leap out!
Future-proof your career and maximize your competitive advantage by learning the skill necessary to stay relevant, reinvent yourself, and adapt to whatever the workplace throws your way in this essential guide.
Faced with tumultuous economic times and rapid technological change, staying ahead in your career depends on continual learning―a lifelong mastery of new ideas, subjects, and skills. If you want to accomplish more and stand apart from everyone else, you need to become an ultralearner.
Scott Young incorporates the latest research about the most effective learning methods and the stories of other ultralearners like himself―among them Ben Franklin, Judit Polgar, and Richard Feynman, as well as a host of others, such as little-known modern polymaths like Nigel Richards who won the World Championship of French Scrabble―without knowing French.
Young documents the methods he and others have used and show that, far from being an obscure skill limited to aggressive autodidacts, ultralearning is a powerful tool anyone can use to improve their career, studies, and life. Ultralearningexplores this fascinating subculture, shares the nine principles behind every successful ultralearning project and offers insights into how you can organize and execute a plan to learn anything deeply and quickly, without teachers or budget-busting tuition costs.
Whether the goal is to be fluent in a language (or ten languages), earn the equivalent of a college degree in a fraction of the time, or master multiple skills to build a product or business from the ground up, the principles in Ultralearningwill guide you to success.
