Description

How to learn effectively when you have to be both the teacher and student. Work smarter and save yourself countless hours. 

Self-learning is not just about performing better in the classroom or the office. It’s about being able to aim your life in whatever direction you choose and conquering the obstacles in front of you.

Replicable methods and insights to build expertise from ground zero.

The Science of Self-Learning focuses not only on learning, but what it means to direct your own learning. Anyone can read a book, but what about more? You will learn to deconstruct a topic and then construct your own syllabus and plan. Gathering information, initial research, having a dialogue with new information - unlock these skills and you will unlock your life.

Make complex topics painless and less intimidating to approach and break down. 

Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for more than a dozen years and is a best-selling author. He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path toward success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.

Develop habits and skills to fulfill your career or hobby goals.

  • Understand the learning success pyramid and how self-regulation and confidence impact learning.
  • How to stay motivated in tedious and tiring learning.
  • The SQ3R method and conversing with information.
  • Science-based methods to help your brain absorb and retain more.
  • Speed-reading and comprehension.
  • How to plan and schedule like Benjamin Franklin.
  • How to extract information like juice from an orange.

Most people have multiple careers in their lives. Self-learning is how you keep up and adapt. 

The only thing that is given in life is that it will change. Seasons change. Moods change. You will change. Whatever happens, you will need to adapt to your new circumstances. Survival of the fittest isn’t just something that exists in science textbooks - it’s what happens in every phase of your life. The ability to learn is what determines whether you sink or swim.

Concise yet profound.

Short, sweet, and to the point; yet not lacking in valuable substance. This book may change the way you read and carry out research. Not to mention altogether motivating.

Very basic and common sense stuff

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this book has good techniques in it, but I wouldn't call anything new or earth-shattering. Most of the book goes into things like goal setting, or taking notes. These things should be the fundamentals you learn in high school. The narrator does a decent job of making the content as interesting as possible. If you've never learned how to set goals and/or take notes in class, this book might be helpful. If, like me, you know how to do those things, this is not the book for you.

Great material to improve how you learn

This is definitely something I would recommend to anyone setting out to learn something. This would be great for a high school or college student. It is a quick, clear guide to help you improve how you learn. I know from my own kids that some of these techniques are taught in school starting in elementary school, but I am not always sure if the kids realize they are being taught how to learn. I think having something like this book would help kids understand what it was all about. I am recommending this to both of my high school students.

The narration was excellent!

Concise tips for self-learners

It’s great book, with real actionable tips for those who wish to teach themselves anything. It mentions some topics only in passing. It would’ve been nice to have gone over them in detail, but maybe the intention is to have those topics be the first subjects to teach oneself. For example, for improving memory, it mentions using a memory palace, but does not explain what that is. So...I’ve got my first subject “Memory Improvement: How to remember everything”. I’ll be using the tips in this book to teach myself this very important topic. It also covers how to read faster and understand more of what you read. A Very important tool for self-learners. It goes over creating good habits, goals, and schedules needed for being your own teacher. There are lessons throughout the book about having the right mindset during the process of teaching yourself; this is the most important tool to have. Very good book. Tip: I found the speed of the audiobook a little slow, so I put it at 1.5 x normal for a more fluent feel.
