My guest in today's podcast is Jim Kwik (yes, that's his real name).

Jim Kwik is really, really…well…quick. He can learn much faster than mere mortals.

Take reading, for example. Most folks read at a rate of 200-250 words-per-minute (wpm). But Jim reads heavy science material at about 500 wpm and devours light fiction at upwards of 1300 wpm. And more importantly, he can remember everything he reads.

I'm seen Jim on stage, memorizing the names of every face in the crowd. And long strings of random numbers. Many people struggle to remember all seven digits of a phone number. But Jim can remember phone numbers all day long. Hundreds of them.

But Jim isn't special. He doesn't naturally have these superpowers. They were learned. And if he can learn them, anyone can learn them – regardless of age, background or education.

In today's podcast, you're going to discover the amazing story of how Jim went from a childhood brain injury to being one the smartest guys with one of the fastest brains on the face of the planet. 

During our discussion, you'll discover:

-How Jim became a memory and learning expert, even after a debilitating head injury…

-Why you shouldn't let school get in the way of your education…

-Whether it's true that we only use part of our brains…

-How technology can make you stupid if you use it incorrectly…

-The three stages of learning you must know…

-The exact process and system Jim uses when he sits down to learn a new skill or task or language…

    Hi Ben and Jim. I'd be interested in your comments on the value of using sprintz to increase reading speed and impact on comprehension for pdf and ebooks? Cheers Shane

    Hey, I tried speed reading but found out it makes me feel rushed, like a stressful rush… What should I do about that, will it be something that gets better with time & practice? I can learn with listening or watching with 1.5 speed no problem though. Thanks guys!

    Hi Ben! In the opener…if you are diving off the coast of Florida, you are probably in the Atlantic, not the Pacific. Small detail! Let us know how it goes.
