“Ultralearner” Scott Young practices what he preaches. He learned four languages in 12 months, learned the content of an MIT degree in a year and learned to draw competent portraits in a month. He shares insights from his experiences and those of other people who learned new, complex skills and entirely new disciplines, often quickly, by using nine principles of efficient, self-directed learning. Young’s techniques offer an alternative, practical approach to learning. Some of his methods are well-known, but his overall strategy will speak to students, anyone ambitious and anyone trying a career change.

Comment on this summary
4 months agoI genuinely enjoyed this abstract. It’s a really nice summary of a learning strategy that people could adopt in a fast-paced world that requires constant effort to remain relevant.
And it successfully poses the question: do you really need to go back to school - often at a huge cost - to get validation that you "know" something? When 9 times out of 10 it's almost as easy to learn it yourself online by "growth hacking" it (at a fraction of the cost).
What I didn't know, was that you don't need to be Einstein to make it work; apparently just about anyone can do this as long as you focus and use deliberate study methods.
