Be warned: A LOT OF ACRONYMS involved with this book.
As an aside, some of our moms were horrible people and we'd rather not remember them even if it is a memory device.
Really, save yourself the money and listen to the podcast.
Kwik describes learning myths like:
-->You’re as smart as you’ll ever be. (You’re not).
-->Education ends when you graduate school. (The real world is a constant test).
-->Believing you are not as smart and skilled as others.
-->Learning something new is hard (e.g., a language, musical instrument, a card game, poetry, baking).
I've believed all these things at various times. Kwik's message is you're better than that.
You can walk away from this book smarter than when you started. There are no magic tricks, but you learn the principles of how to get a stronger mindset, how to discover your purpose and beat procrastination, and methods to become limitless such as speed-reading, memory recall, study habits, focus, and decision making.
I think what's most powerful about this book is that you learn the simple art of appreciating yourself. You understand that you are capable of many great things. I certainly have a lot to consider after reading this book. I always thought it was too late in life to learn a new language. But now I don't think so. Now there is so much I want to learn!
What I learned:
--There are learning myths holding us back.
--I love this quote: “Genius leaves clues. There is always a method behind what looks like magic.” I think you can apply this to so many things in life. If you want to get better at X, look at the masters you admire. What was their story? What did they study?
-- Discovering your guiding question will help you make decisions and frame all your actions around a purpose.
-- I can read a lot faster and still comprehend!
--Rote learning is not the way to remember. I have tools like visualization to remember more.
I don’t want to wind up losing my memory one day or having something like Alzheimer's happen. I believe this book and others are important tools in my arsenal to keep me young and healthy.
This is mostly a sales pitch for his online courses with a few unoriginal tips pilfered from long-standing thinking on brain health and function.
Well written in a format that is often reminiscent of the "For Dummies" series. Skeptic that I am, I can't guarantee that this book will change your life, but I can tell you that it's a decent read.
Top international reviews
The book is a very easy read and helps the reader understand the limitless model which encompasses Mindset, Motivation and Methods. Jim starts with explaining why this is important especially today when we are affected by Digital Dementia and Digital Deduction where the dependency on technology is actually stopping us from using our brains effectively, have better recall and read and learn better.
I think this is a very important part of the book as it sets the scene outlining what the issues are and then very clearly makes a statement that this can all be fixed. We can turn on the power and tap into the neuroplasticity of our brain. It obviously needs a system and training and this is what the remainder of the book lays out.
Part 2 of the book covers the WHAT aspect, the MINDSET and discusses possibility. It covers some really useful concepts on belief systems and the 7 lies of learning.
Part 3 covers the WHY, the MOTIVATION and focusses on purpose, energy, flow and small simple steps.
Part 4 covers the HOW, the METHODS and discusses Focus, Study, Memory, Speed Reading and Thinking. This is comprehensive gives practical exercises
What I love about the book:
- It is packed with wisdom to help you to reflect and take action
- It is packed with actionable tools, each chapter has sections called Kwik Start which prompt you to do something, write something or outline a technique. (I have included a photo showing an example of this)
- It comes with a 10 Day video course called Kwik Start which can be used along with the book. It has great content and Jim inspires as he teaches this
- It makes you BELIEVE that you can learn better and it helps you see this by giving you the tools and helping you develop the mindset
- Every page is packed with useful information. This is not about Jim showing us how good he is. No waffle, no trying to repeat unnecessary things. The book delivers high-quality content on every page. There are dedicated pages for quotes but these add value to a book designed to be functional, a great reference guide and support to implement action.
- It provides a framework to help train your brain. You won't improve just by reading the book, you will have to do the exercise and have a training regimen. Jim helps you to implement this.
If you want to tap into your limitless potential and discover your Superpowers. If you want to be a better learner to improve all areas of your life then this is a great book to read. I highly recommend this book for anyone of any age. Use it not only for yourself but everyone else in your life. It will be life-changing but only if you read and implement it.
In this book Mr Kwik talked about how he got labelled as a boy with a broken brain and in my interpretation you will see how all of this things happened in his life for him to become the biggest brain coach today ,off corse his hard work had a big role in that as well. When you purchase this book you get an access to kwik start program which makes better understanding of this book and believing in that we all are LIMITLESS .
As JIm says '' Readers are leaders '', '' Knowledge is a potential power , its power when you use it .''
So order your copy of this amazing book and Learn How To Learn .
Thank you Jim Kwik
Full of great simple but powerful tips and tools that can take you from where you are to a place where you perform things you never thought you are capable of,and make you realise all you where missing was a different perspective, the the right tools and strategies and taking control of your emotional state! Highly recommended for everyone interested into upgrading himself 🙏
The Author, Jim Kwik, has quickly become my biggest inspiration, and about as close to a super hero as I can imagine.
Jims experience and teachings have become my stepping stones towards the relevant matters in life required to becoming a functional human of society. It doesn't just teach you how to unlock your limitless brain, It gives you insight on building the habits required to achieve your full potential.
Much love and thanks,
It’s a breeze to read!
If you are a Super Hero Buff you will love the 1st 15 pages especially page 14-15.
I had to re-read pages 14-15 to my 11 year old son, he was so excited and Jim Kwik is a super hero to him now!
And I cried reading it the second time just seeing my son’s reaction. Pure magic.
I have done is Kwik Reading masterclass and later his course with incredible results.
His book is helping me to become even more Limitless.
Having been a boy who did not like to read to become a man who enjoys reading is incredible and such a gift.
