View Curriculum
  • 1. You should be able to commit to at least 10 minutes a day of reading
  • 2. You must be willing to try new methods and techniques – some of which are the opposite of what you’ve learned (and may push you out of your comfort zone)
  • 3. You need to promise yourself you’ll use what you learn. If you have any questions about the course, please contact me before purchasing the course so that I can make sure it’s right for you

In this course, I'll show you the entire, FULLY UPDATED step-by-step blueprint I'll use to read over 300 books this year.

Because reading isn't just something you should do -- it's a must if you want to live your dreams.

It's no wonder Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, Mark Cuban, Will Smith and many more of the world's most radically successful people read more in a month than most people do in a decade.

In this course, I'll help you become a learning machine as well.

I'll show you how to pick the right books, and how to get through them as quickly as humanly possible so you can take what you learn to get real results in your life.

If you want to read more fiction books, this course isn't for you. This also isn't a course just on "speed reading" because I prefer reading the right things than reading the wrong things quickly.

All I care about is reading a book or two a day and using what I learn to make my life better. If you want to do the same, this course can change your life (I know because many of the students of the course have told me exactly that!)

Here's a sample of what you'll learn inside:

1. The ONE change you need to make to change how you read forever 

2. Why everything you learned in school stops you from reading more than 20 books a year (and what to do about it)

3. A not so obvious, hidden benefit of reading that will make you want to read every, single day 

4. The 300 Book Excel Sheet: Use this excel sheet to perfectly organize the hundreds of books you'll read this year [Lecture 10]

5. A little known trick that can INSTANTLY double your reading speed 

6. "The Double Time Solution": A Simple thing you can do to read twice as many books without spending ANY extra time 

7. How to make sure you read all the time 

8. Do you do THIS after you read? If not, all that time reading could be a total waste 

9. How to use what you learn from books to make more money (or get anything else you want) 

10. 3 simple ways to read any book quickly (HINT: none of them are what we call "traditional reading") 

11. What to do as soon as you open the book...and why it can save you hours

12.How to take notes on a book so you can review it even years later in 20 minutes or less 

13. Why dividing all your reading into two specific categories can make you more successful 

14. What books to NEVER read 

15. How to read even the most technical books in a day – the ones that used to take months to read 

16. The 3 types of books you NEED to read 

17. How to permanently memorize everything you read 

18. What I learned from a Roman philosopher from 2,000 years ago to organize my bookshelf 

And much, much more...

You'll also get access to 8 cheat sheets to be able to remember, and use everything we cover. 

So to become a learning machine and read more books than you ever thought possible, just click the "take this course" button because every day you delay is an extra book you could have read.

To your success,


Who is the target audience?
  • 1. This course is for you if you have a list or stack of unread non-fiction books you’re dying to get through
  • 2. Ideal for people who feel overwhelmed by all the information they want to take in, and are frustrated that their lives aren’t moving forward
  • 3. Anyone who dreams of reading 100 or more books this year (I’ve already shown over 1000 people how to do so…)
  • 4. You know you’re capable of making a greater impact than what you’re currently doing
  • 5. You want to read more NON-FICTION books. This course is specifically designed for non-fiction. If you want to read more fiction books, I'd recommend a speed reading course instead

PART 1: The Monster Myth Sabotaging Any Chance of Reading More Books

This SINGLE myth is sabotaging any chance you have of reading more books. We've all been focusing on the wrong thing. I'll show what that is in this video, and what to do instead.

The Big Monster Reading Myth

In this lecture, I'll show you why a study on London cab drivers shows us what learning really is, why it's completely different than what we've been taught, and what it has to do with reading more books.

How A Study On Cab Drivers Shows You EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Reading

In school, we're taught to read so we can have an intelligent conversation about what we read. This couldn't be more wrong. In this lecture we'll cover what you need to do instead, and how it changes everything.

I'm On A Quest To Give You The Education You'll Never Get In School.

The things that the world's highest achievers spent their entire lives discovering, that no professor or teacher will ever tell you.

Because when I was in college, I was mad. I’d just read a book and everything inside was the opposite of what I was learning in all my classes.

So I ran into the dean’s office and said "I'm literally learning more from the books I get on Amazon for five bucks than these classes that cost thousands of dollars each!"

And all she had to tell me is...they're working on it!

So when I walked out that day, I swore I’d teach myself the things I should have learned in school. And I started reading LOTS of books….now over a thousand on everything from meditation to making money. And I realized ONE BIG THING…

Everyone who’s excelled in any area of life knew things we’re never taught in school.

They were Insiders.

They discovered the truth about finding their purpose and creating a perfect vision to work towards. Or about motivation and productivity, financial freedom, having authentic relationships, changing the world, persuading people, learning incredibly quickly or celebrating their hundredth birthday still in perfect health.

Meanwhile in college we didn’t learn any of this stuff. Instead we’re forced to pay tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to memorize facts so we could write them on a piece of paper.

So if you want to live a life miles beyond the “regular” life, you'll have to learn less from a classroom, and more from the people who have actually gotten the things you want.

And my goal on Udemy is to share with you how you can also Become A Learning Machine and to condense tens of thousands of pages of reading in different subjects to help you become way more productive and make a lasting impact on the world.
