I liked how the book dove into the learning mistakes that I and most people were probably committing at that moment. First step is awareness! Super Learning is organized and has a proven step-by-step plan on helping us learn!
The book completely dissects aspects of learning to maximize ones learning to become a Super Learner. The work delivers as it breaks down human attention span and how to get the most out of learning sessions and goes beyond the normal learning styles to understand mind styles vs. learning styles.
A very impressive work that takes learning and retention seriously and should do increase both for all readers.

On top of debunking the most commonly adopted learning approaches (which I suspect come into play as second nature in many of our learning experiences today, however inefficient they are), Hollins put together an alternative playbook that is both neat and comprehensive. I particularly enjoyed the discussions built on the idea of organically working with time as a vehicle for strengthening retention and application of new knowledge - 'spaced repetition' or 'distributed practice', to be precise, reset my thoughts on how to coordinate focus blocks with the many daunting subjects I'm undertaking this year for my MAppFin. This framework, as I now understand, is to help us win our battles against the forgetting curve. Prior to stumbling across this read, and frustrated at how little of each piece of new knowledge I seem to retain and recall for assessment purpose, I did start experimenting with some stretched out study plans i.e. breaking what would otherwise be a 3-4 hour focus session a day into much smaller blocks spread evenly across 7-day periods, and had some wins. So there is much satisfaction found when the book reaffirms the merits of my trial run. Thank you, Hollins!
Inspired by this read, I'd now also like to start weaving Feynman's technique, interleaving, syntopical reading and the Cornell method for note-taking into my schedules to generate better learning outcomes in everything I wish to understand, for I couldn't agree more with Hollins on the many effects these strategies would bring alive.
