Basically, if you know what you are interested in and want to learn about it, take the time to learn it, question what you are learning and find ways to apply it to other areas of interest or your current career; then this book is just a waste of time. If you do not know how to be multi-disciplined or what you are interested in then read "How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci" by Micheal Gelb (not this authors version as it looks like he read Gelb and just repackaged it) and get into your own head and find your interests and interesting ways to pursue them.
This book missed it's full potential by telling and explaining rather than showing. It felt like badly repackaged psychology. He is pushing a book out every 8 weeks or even less to make money which there is technically nothing wrong with ( you can find many ebooks here on Amazon on how to write a book in 24 hours or 1 week and sell it) but I think that is what makes the book lacking? Other reviewers on other books noted something seeming off or incomplete. I believe it to be time, effort to fully flesh out what could be helpful and interesting to the audience and having a clear intent for the book other than repeating psychology theory and pumping out books. I think they would be better labeled as mini psychology lessons. If you look the author has several similar books and this year alone has had over ten books he has published (most likely self published) there is a reason published books take time. There are many great psychology reads out there or even psychology textbooks and tons of self help books that are more informative and helpful in nurturing growth of self. I have not read any other books by this author but did go through several kindle sections of others he is offering after reading this book and they appear to be quite similar.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
But review it I will. Learn Like a Polymath is hardly revolutionary. Many books cover the same topic, and if you have even the inkling of being a Polymath then you'll probably intuit this process pretty well on your own. That being said, this book presents its topic clearly, with concrete steps on how to learn both breadth and depth of topic. Is that enough to make you a Polymath? I'm not sure. I'll confess that I didn't sit down and follow the exercises.
I don't know if this author is a credentialed psychologist or not, but I never got the impression that he was presenting his own groundbreaking research or even thoughts. He's clearly interested in the topic, has read and studied it, and has chosen to bundle it up in a shorter, easier-to-digest form. It's a great primer for the idea, but if you're truly interested in "learning like a polymath," you'll end up reading other books on the subject, as this one won't quite fill the void.
I was gifted an eARC of this book but this is my honest opinion

Book content review: This book does not feature any "hack" or easy path towards polymathy. Rather, it is a clear, short, insightful and well-redacted presentation of the long and arduous journey to polymathy. That is why I purchased this book, and I am very satisfied with the way the author presented the subject. 5/5.
