This book falls into the category of books that Alexandra ordered, I took one look at, snatched and immediately read. (Thanks, babe! Your curiosity is a gift. :)
It also falls into the category of AMAZING books that come as close as we’ll get to me saying, “This is a must read!!” Other (recent) books in that category include James Clear’s Atomic Habits, Marie Forleo’s Everything Is Figureoutable and Mel Robbins’s 5 Second Rule.
Jim Kwik is a widely recognized world expert in memory improvement, brain optimization and accelerated learning and has “served as the brain coach to a who’s who of Hollywood’s elite, professional athletes, political leaders, and business magnates.”
The best part of Jim’s story? After suffering a brain injury in kindergarten, he was described by a teacher as the kid “with a broken brain.” He struggled with learning for most of his life. Then he went antifragile on it and studied (and applied!) the science of how we learn. Fast-forward a couple decades and VOILA. Here we are.
The book is R I D I C U L O U S L Y packed with Big Ideas. We’ll barely scratch the surface of all its goodness but I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
