Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, and Unlock Your Exceptional Life
by Jim Kwik | 344 pages

Jim Kwik is a widely recognized world expert in memory improvement, brain optimization and accelerated learning and has “served as the brain coach to a who’s who of Hollywood’s elite, professional athletes, political leaders, and business magnates.” The best part of Jim’s story? After suffering a brain injury in kindergarten, he was described by a teacher as "the kid with a broken brain.” He struggled with learning for most of his life. Then he went antifragile on it and studied (and applied!) the science of how we learn. Fast-forward a couple decades and VOILA. Here we are. This book is REALLY (!) good. Big Ideas we explore include the Limitless Model (Mindset + Motivation + Methods), Supervillans (Digital: Deluge + Distraction + Dementia + Deduction + Depression), Learn FASTER (Forget + Act + State + Teach + Enter + Review), Learned Limitlessness (delete the LIEs and Optimize the BS!), and how to create sustainable Motivation (Purpose x Energy x Small Simple Steps).


“The Hero’s Journey is the perfect structure to lend power and purpose to your personal story. In Limitless, you are the superhero.

One of my core beliefs is that human potential is one of the only infinite resources we have in this world. Most everything else is finite, but the human mind is the ultimate superpower—there is no limit to our creativity, imagination, determination, or ability to think, reason, or learn. Yet this resource is also among the least tapped. All of us can be the heroes of our own story, dipping into the well of our potential every single day and never having that well run dry. But so few of us approach our lives this way. That’s why I wrote this book—to help you realize that no matter where you are, or where you’ve been, you absolutely can free yourself and go from limits to liberation. That might be the only ‘extra’ you need to transition from ordinary to the extraordinary world.

This book is going to provide you with the extra. What you’ll get within these pages is a series of tools that will help you cast off your perceived restrictions. You’re going to learn how to unlimit your brain. You’re going to learn how to unlimit your drive. You’re going to learn how to unlimit your memory, your focus, and your habits. If I am your mentor in your hero’s journey, then this book is your map to master your mind, motivation, and methods to learn how to learn. And once you’ve done that, you will be limitless.”

This book falls into the category of books that Alexandra ordered, I took one look at, snatched and immediately read. (Thanks, babe! Your curiosity is a gift. :)

It also falls into the category of AMAZING books that come as close as we’ll get to me saying, “This is a must read!!” Other (recent) books in that category include James Clear’s Atomic Habits, Marie Forleo’s Everything Is Figureoutable and Mel Robbins’s 5 Second Rule.

Those books are all life-changers. So is this one. If the idea of being “limitless” sounds like fun, I think you’ll enjoy the book as much as I did. (Get a copy here.)

The book is R I D I C U L O U S L Y packed with Big Ideas. We’ll barely scratch the surface of all its goodness but I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
