This book really changed the game for me. I can not say enough good things about this book! First of all, this is the most engaging book I have EVER read. He stops you many times to do critical thinking exercises, which really lets this information sink in. In this book, he will help provide you with the techniques to have a limitless memory, speed read, and how to retain all the information while doing so. In the past, I have been a very slow reader. I might be in 1-3 books for months at a time and not able to concentrate and push through any one book to finish it. After reading this book, I have been finishing 1 book a week (200-300 pages)...I’m serious! Within a day after reading his speed reading chapter, I increased my reading speed by over 100 words per min. Many of my friends were skeptical and questioned if I was even retaining anything I was reading. I was able to articulate what I had absorbed in my chapters of reading with more detail and critical thought than ever before. I’ve already gotten this book into the hands of about 5 people because they’ve been impressed with how it has impacted me. I believe this should be “essential” reading for all ages because this book teaches you HOW to learn. The schooling system throws hours and hours of information at you daily, but doesn’t really go into the proper way to retain that information and keep your attention. This book should be the first of many, I hope you all enjoy as much as I did. Cheers!
