"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

This technique helps people in groups of four to six learn immense amounts of material rapidly. It is ideal for students in school, college, or at work.



Gather some people to make up your learning group; they could be members of your family, or your friends from school or elsewhere. For adults, the group could be a work or project team. Let us say that you are a group of four buddies aiming to polish off eight books over a weekend.

Assuming everyone in the group knows these techniques, the outcome will be pure magic.

Let’s agree to START at say, 7:30 a.m.

Each person selects a book for the day.

The aim is for everyone to finish his or her book during that day, and a second book each, on the following day. Once again, the preparation is as for Power Browsing:


(1) Select a quiet, well-lit place to read. Wear comfortable clothing. Have lots of drinking water handy. If you wish, play some soft Baroque or New Age music (NO rock, rap, or other rowdy stuff!).

(2) Tear off several strips of paper for use as bookmarks.

(3) Have a drawing block, coloured markers, highlighters, and Post-it Notes available.

(4) State your purpose for doing this exercise! Your objective is to finish the book in the little time that you have available.
