Based on the popular Super Learner courses, this book features reams of engaging research and tips on how to learn faster and better.
The information age has profoundly changed the skills you need to flourish in the workplace. In nearly every field, employees are now required to stay abreast of industry trends and learn new competencies at an accelerating pace.
How can workers keep up with the barrage of information they’re asked to absorb? Is there a way to learn — and remember — the most important content, enabling you to stay relevant within your field? According to Jonathan Levi, cofounder of the SuperLearner online course series, the answer is a resounding yes.
Through Levi’s approach, more than 200,000 people have learned how to improve their capacity for learning and absorbing content. Levi combines speed-reading, the latest research on neuroscience, and ancient memory techniques to provide a framework for accelerated learning.
In the process, he unveils what he dubs “the only skill that matters” in today’s modern world: the ability to learn.
