    Description

    "Learn anything... fast!"

    Take a moment to consider how many things you want to learn to do. What's on your list? What's holding you back from getting started? Are you worried about the time and effort it takes to acquire new skills - time you don't have and effort you can't spare?

    Research suggests it takes 10,000 hours to develop a new skill. In this nonstop world when will you ever find that much time and energy?

    To make matters worse, the early hours of practicing something new are always the most frustrating. That's why it's difficult to learn how to speak a new language, play an instrument, hit a golf ball, or shoot great photos. It's so much easier to watch TV or surf the web...

    In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you'll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well.

    This method isn't theoretical: it's field-tested. Kaufman invites readers to join him as he field tests his approach by learning to program a Web application, play the ukulele, practice yoga, re-learn to touch type, get the hang of windsurfing, and study the world's oldest and most complex board game.

    What do you want to learn?

    "As a father of three, practicing neurosurgeon, and global journalist, I don't have a lot of free time on my hands. The First 20 Hours is a practical guide to learning beyond our mid-20s, when our brains are fully developed. Josh's book will inspire you to pick up forgotten hobbies and chase elusive dreams." (Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent)

    Finished the thesis early in the book

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe someone in their early 20s with little experience in their life might like it.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Josh Kaufman again?

    No.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Josh Kaufman?

    Not sure. Really not going to.

    What character would you cut from The First 20 Hours?

    I'd kill all the stories about things he learned in his past.

    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, he finishes his thesis early in the book. The rest is just fill. He talks about how he learned yoga and computer programming (that's all in the past). This was all about 20/20 foresight. How about talking about his thesis and then actually applying it to something he knows nothing about. Write about that. Write about how it's something he wants to learn, but is fighting with all the self doubts, frustration and aggravation of finding the motivation to do what he intellectually wants, but has trouble finding the discipline to actually learn. Prove that thesis. Don't just introduce the thesis and then look back into the past about how it worked for things he already learned. Don't talk about things he had to learn for his business. I have to do that all the time. I have to learn about things I could care less about because I have to do it for my business.

    All in all, this book talks about a thesis that could be stated in 3 lines. Only focus on learning one thing at a time. Devote the time to do it and don't let any other learning distractions stop you from this goal. And finally, think before you do. Plan how you're going to learn and do it intelligently. I have a problem with that idea because it all falls back to 20/20 foresight. You can't learn what's important and what isn't until you learn something about it.

    In the end, this was a brief thesis that didn't need the full space of a book. It makes money for the author because it's not a brief article that he can put on his website--it's a book. And this book is a waste of time and money.

    First 3 Chapters are enough

    The book has a great start and fullfilled my expectations. The you get 30min of yoga history and you just stop listening.

    Learn by doing it.

    First -- you're listening to a book instead of reading it because you wan to "read" faster than actual reading. So, for anything you wan to learn (or want to burn down your learning bucket list), you learn by doing it. Based on his experience and research, Josh has come up with 10 principles for learning enough to enjoy.

    1. Choose a lovable skill
    2. Choose the target performance level
    3. Learn one -- only one -- at a time.
    4. Deconstruct the skill to sub skills
    5. Get the tools to help you start practicing the skill asap.
    and 5 more.

    Key emphasis on the getting to doing and acquiring skill, tips creating the environment to sticking to it makes all the difference in this approach. First few chapters will move to action -- a great success for any book by any measure.

    The book also details Josh's successful application of these techniques to learning Yoga, web application, Go, touch typing, ukulele and windsurfing. I treat this as bonus.

    Disspointed

    Would you try another book from Josh Kaufman and/or Josh Kaufman?

    I don't know.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know.

    Have you listened to any of Josh Kaufman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The First 20 Hours?

    All stories telling me how do yoga, programming, playing go, sailing, etc.

    Any additional comments?

    The author has some great advice for learning but the meat of the advice comes in about the first 45 minutes and the rest is just telling me how to do yoga, program computers, play GO, sailing, etc., stuff I'm not interested in, nor did I want to learn about. I realize the author is trying to use those as examples as to how he learned something but it was ridiculously detailed and certainly took him more than 20 hours. I feel like the rest of the book was decdicated to plugging his wifes Yoga video and his other computer businesses and his "20 hour" website.

    It real waste of my time and my money for this book!

    Lots of talk way to much filler.

    Would you try another book from Josh Kaufman and/or Josh Kaufman?

    No

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Did not get that far

    Would you be willing to try another one of Josh Kaufman’s performances?

    No

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment

    Any additional comments?

    So much of the audio book was devoted to stories and that's fine to warm us up to the strategies but at chapter seven I found myself a bit angry at having listened to a very long talk on yoga positions, history,what he got out of it and Antonio Banderas younger look alike all the women had crushes on... and very little on new strategies...

    basically save yourself money just devote yourself to 90 minutes of intense study if you can't study 90 minutes build up to it.. remove distractions and make time for study daily at roughly same time... there free ... I was victimized by the old bait and switch.
    I paid for learning strategies and received a book on how to fill hours of the listeners time and do it sounding gooooood.. .. (Yes Josh has a good voice)
    What a waste.

    Shame on you Josh. You got me but I'm returning the audio book for my money back. I want my time back also but that's gone and I feel ripped off.

    I feel cheated

    Any additional comments?

    My review is not about the audio part, but about the book. Kaufman blahblahs around, and then spends I don't know how much time talking about the history of yoga, which I don't care at all about. I feel this was just some space filler, and hence feel cheated.

    A Shrill and Vacuous Petard

    If I LEARNed ANYTHING FAST from this shrill and vacuous petard, it's that I would do much better to spend at least 20 seconds to scan the reviews before taking the Audible bait on a Daily Deal.

    Very interesting!

    I think this book is a great personal experiment: To learn something valuable with 20 hours of dedicated practice after you learn the theory of the project.

    I believe this kind of thinking if part of the new way to learn. It is new and in the the tradition recently started by Tim Ferriss in the Four Hour Cookbook and the Four Hour Body.

    Both of these authors present a recipe for applying quick learning to any number of subjects.

    more about yoga than learning

    What would have made The First 20 Hours better?

    focus on the art of learning, or rapid skill acquisition. I understand using something like yoga as an example of how you do RSA, but for about the last hour I've been listening to how to actually DO yoga, which doesn't interest me. I didn't want to hear about what you learned about yoga.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something else.

    This solves a lot of issues...

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book codifies how to obtain skills quickly and I am thrilled to have it in my hands. So many people are wasting money trying to get an up-to-date skillset for this job market. Josh breaks this task down to easy-to-follow sub-tasks, allowing the learner a clear path to obtain tasks needed to make that person competitive in the job market.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is a game-changer and puts a path for skill acquisition within the reach of everyone. We have already given copies of this book to many friends and family members and will continue to do so.

    Summary what the author learned.

    The main part of the book is a story what skills the author learned and how he learned it. Heard the first skill, yoga, but skipped the rest of the book. Waste of money for me.

    Lernwissen

    Einige der Beispiele warem etwas langweilig. Aber der Sprecher weist aucj darauf hin, dass man nicht alle vier Beispiel-Kaöiteö hören muss.
    Der Autor spricht selbst und es wirkt sehr authentisch und unterhaltsam.

    Don't buy

    Für wen - wenn nicht gerade für Sie - ist dieses Hörbuch besser geeignet?

    Maybe reasonable if you want to learn the skills the author presented as examples. Even then I think it's doubtful whether one can learn Yoga or programming (Ruby) from oratorial instructions. After that I stopped listening as I felt it's a complete waste of time, even while commuting.
