Overview: The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything ... Fast

The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything . . . Fast! by Josh Kaufman is a book about grasping things at a lightning pace and that too effectively. Research argues that our mind takes around 10,000 hours to develop and grasp a new skill. Well, who has the time? It's all about speed and time management, given the fast pace the world moves in today. If that's not all, almost everyone stops at the beginning of starting something new as the first few hours of practice always bring along frustration and high difficulty levels. Hence, even if you want to learn a language or master an instrument, the first few hours can often discourage your efforts and ultimately result in letting go of the entire idea. Our mind, as a result, seeks to comprehend things like TV, internet et al. However, Josh Kaufman in his book tries to reverse this. He propagates plans and ideas which help one to understand and grasp a new skill in a shorter time span.

The book has a very well-planned approach towards this. Kaufman systematically advocates ways in which one can deconstruct complex skills and then work on the productive practice. He also explains how to eradicate learning barriers that are faced by almost everyone. In his book, Kaufman pens down his personal methods which he has self-tested. He asks the reader to determine his/her desired performance level and then try hard to achieve that and that only. He also tells them to create fast feedback loops. Thus, you get a real life analysis of your performance of the task, which enables you to do it even faster.

The First 20 Hours is for anyone who is enthusiastic about learning new things but wants to do so in minimum time possible. This hardcover book is available online with the ISBN 13 number of 978-1591845553 and the ISBN 10 number of 1591845556.
