“This is a good read full of personal insights from the author, but also ideas we can all adopt.” (FT Adviser, May 2018)
From the Inside Flap
The key to success is learning the meta-language of learning. Learning how to learn Isaiah shows us how.
--James Altucher, Journalist and Author of Choose Yourself
Your smart strategies for achieving your goals.
Tap into the power of a proven scientific process of finding success through your most valuable assets: selective focus, creative ownership and pragmatic growth.
Discover the keys to sustainable achievement.
The Science of Intelligent Achievement shows you how to overcome distractions, misinformation and over-commitment, and become selective in order to achieve your goals. You can build your own guidepost of focus, creation and growth, and avoid the common mistake of chasing after fake success. Isaiah Hankel shows you how to:
- Define your values and align them with who you are.
- Stop depending on others for your happiness and success.
- Become selective with where you spend your mental energy.
- Initiate and sustain consistent, practical changes.
- Leverage the power of micro-decisions, personal responsibility and mini-habits.
Take ownership of your life and learn the art (and science) of positive change through pragmatic decisions and actions.
The book shows you that it's never too late to turn things around.
--Dr. Klodjan Stafa, Senior Scientist at Estée Lauder Companies
Reading this book is like a healthy punch in the gut. I dare you to read it and not come out transformed.

Initially, this book begins by giving insight into the author's personal and professional struggles/challenges and humanizes the author. I really connected with the content on a personal level. It opened my eyes to some of things that maybe are not as 'real' in my life as I like to pretend, and also showed me to be open to the things that I pretend are valuable …. Forcing me to re-evaluate what my core values are, what I think is most important, and what I want out of my life, here and now, and in the future --- am I moving that direction?
Then you get to bulk of the book, strategic, scientific ideas surrounding strategies for how to analyze and make those things happen (and decide what you want them to be). The thing I have loved about this book (I'm on round three), is though it is based in the sciences and the content is well cited it doesn't take the human aspect out of the idea or strategies for how to make your life better. As a scientist, a teacher, an artist and someone who values the human experience and relationships above all else, I believe this book is invaluable and everyone would benefit from the concepts within.

Isaiah Hankel has a wonderfully pragmatic style, this isn't a wishy-washy read. It's to the point and call's out the reader to identify and own up to to behaviours, habits and relationships that are draining their energy and preventing them from making the most of their lives. Isaiah's scientific background comes through strongly in the evidence that he offers to back-up his guidance, it's factual and actionable.
The last thing I want to say about the book and Isaiah's style generally is that it's really well structured. I made notes and followed the tasks of the previous book and will be doing the same with this. It's really well laid out and provides a really clear template for reflection and action.
This is a book for people who want to make changes and develop themselves in a sustainable and repeatable manner, can't recommend it enough!
I am highly recommending this book.
One of the weak point of the book was its more prespective than analytical.
Good read overall
