- What we can learn from the fun and curiosity children bring to learning
- Why knowing your motivation and purpose is key when learning something new

Author himself doesn't ask enough questions
He has about half right. Unfortunately, in the places where he himself has not learned enough, he fills the gaps with stiff, narrow objectives or irrelevant, short-sighted judgment. As a result, all his advice is full of unexamined contradictions.
For example, why does he so confidently dismiss the concept of learning styles, when he later acknowledges that different people may not get the same effect from reading? What does he think the difference is between "style" and "way" the makes the latter term more correct? He doesn't explain this in the book. He just leaves it hanging with the weight of implication, and the only subtext I can find in that section is that he just has a personal grudge against the term. Unexamined.
Besides that, the advice is mostly common sense. Laying it out does have some use but I doubt it is honestly more helpful to anyone than just going about learning the ways they already do. There's not even anything about how to evaluate information that one finds or receives, just a few small cautions that one should.
I wonder what he has learned in the 7 years since writing this.
A great primer
You can't have it both ways- a book that goes into depth about "how" to learn is going to be a lot longer than 2 hours. I own some of those books already. This, on the other hand, is a good, concise book to refresh yourself on learning strategies while on the commute to work. It's a good pick-up book. For the price and the length of the book, I was satisfied.

It covers all the ways I like to learn and the techniques I currently use that aren’t the most effective but work really well for me. At the end of the book it states to take action, something is better than nothing. Great book
