Accelerated learning techniques

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.
