Learn. Improve. Master.

We usually see the polished performance or refined work from the people we admire—a virtuoso cellist giving a concert, a great quarterback playing in a championship game, or an inspiring speaker commanding the stage.

What we don’t see is how they developed their skill—the process behind their greatness—and so we believe that what they do is beyond our capabilities.

But we can achieve greatness too, regardless of talent or innate traits, if we follow the right process. This book is about that process: How to Learn, Improve, and Master any skill.

You’ll Learn How To:


Use your memory like top memory champions and remember anything you want.


Optimize practice like elite musicians, chess players, and athletes so you get the most out of your time and effort.


Develop the practice habit and implement strategies to stick to it.


Overcome the eventual obstacles, setbacks, and plateaus that come with learning and pursuing mastery.


Choose mentors and coaches that will help you develop your potential.


Accelerate your learning and become a master of your craft.

With each chapter, you’ll discover hacks that help your brain absorb more information with less effort. Velasquez backs his compelling argument for a revolutionary learning approach with real-world examples from athletes, chess players, and all-around geniuses.”
