Accelerated learning techniquesby Wojciech Adam Koszek ⋅ Sep 3, 2014 ⋅ Menlo Park, CA
Don't like things from Brian Tracy, but this book was interesting. If you're a learning geek, get it.
This little and interesting book touches topics such as paraphrasing newly read material, together with hints on how to stay focused.
There was a nice pearl about how to become a very literate person. Recipe was:
- 1 book
- 1 poem
- 1 short story
I suspect I’ll have to come up with a CS equivalent of this list.
Mind mapping was mentioned. Before I knew how it is called I was using it, for things which I were to do right the next day. Being in bed and far away from a pen, I tried to throw a pillow in the middle of a room while thinking about specific problem/task. The next day right after waking up I questioned the location of the pillow and immediately recalled what I was thinking the previous night.
Tracy’s books are interesting as they seemed backed by his research, so I believe that whatever this book has got, it has been an effect of his more careful studies across a wide span of literature.
I recommend to learning addicts.
