When I first saw this book, I was very skeptical. There is a very bold insinuation made in the title. But because it was on sale on Kindle for $1.49 the day I bought it, I decided it was worth the purchase. A few days later, after finishing the book, I am ready to call this one of the best and certainly most useful non-fiction books I have ever read, and I am a very avid reader.
If you allow this book to change the way you learn, then this book is easily worth 20x the cover price for the keys and tools Horsley provides you with because you'll finally be able to overcome that old adage that claims that we only use about 10% of our brains.
Like most of us, I've always just accepted the limitations that seem inherent with owning a brain, and I've become satisfied that I'll never be able to use more than "10%" as if it is not even realistic to tap into significantly more than that. However, this book invites you to throw away those limitations and strive for more. And Horsley's methods are not difficult to put into practice. They only require commitment, practice, and review. He compares it to taking your mind to the gym for a regular workout.
Some of the strategies that he teaches near the beginning of the book may sound familiar to you, but read on. All the way through to the end. Have fun with the book. Practice what he is teaching you at each and every step along the way. You'll find some of the methods more useful to you than others, but you will find all of them legitimately helpful. Use any information that you want to learn as your training material, and you will see for yourself that these methods work. I'm not even going to give you any examples in this review because you really need to experience it for yourself.
I will say this... usually, after I read a book, I never read it again. Not so with this one. This book is worth my reading every week because I want to practice, learn, and remember all of these methods. Horsley says, "Your mind is the only computer in the world with this characteristic: the more you put into it, the more it holds." His methods illustrate this truth very clearly.
I only wish I could have discovered this book when I was in high school or college. The great thing about learning though is that you always have opportunities to learn more, and all of us could use these methods to be more successful in any area of our lives, personal or professional. This book is going to open up an unlimited world to you, if you are willing to make some changes in the way you think.
