“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.
