I read this quote a fourth of the way through the book: “I’m going to share much of that method with you in the book.” (The referenced method is how to easily memorize information.) It’s like, dude. Enough. I bought your book. You don’t need to sell me. I’ve literally purchased and read a fifth of your book, get to the damn actionable advice already!

I had to wait until Chapter 8 for this actionable information. The first third of the book has taken the approach that the reader first needs to be built up and given confidence in their abilities. Time and time again the author references limiting beliefs and the such. If you don’t suffer any past traumatic psychological issues (as the author had), I think you can skip this portion. And, I’m no genius. In fact, I think my learning abilities are average.

Speed reading, subvocalization, reading with a voice in your head inhibits reading quick. stop doing this just as you don’t read punctuation (comma, period, etc) you understand it when you look at it, just like you understand words when you look at them.
