What is holding you back from getting started? Are you worried about the time and effort it takes to acquire new skills, time you do not have and effort you cannot spare? Research suggests it takes 10,000 hours to develop a new skill. In this nonstop world when will you ever find that much time and energy? In this book the author offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible by showing how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers.
