A method for mastering the book knowledge of any subject in 13 weeks, via Levi at NeoLibre.org (Photo credit: henry…)

I love practical tips on how to master an aspect of one’s talent, that is if it can be implemented by your child today instead of years later in college. That’s why I like librarything.com as a way to find books today related to your child’s talent interest and my son Caleb (13) is currently using it to collect his own specialized library. But this tip from Levi at www.NeoLibre.org takes the book approach for building up talent one step further. Check out his cyclic approach to finding and reading the most relevant books in your field in a systematic fashion, all-the-while gaining speed and traction. It’s a cyclic reading method for mastering the written knowledge of any topic in 13 weeks – all it needs now is a catchy name for the method.

  1. Thanks for posting my tip. I agree it does need a catchy name. If you think of anything, let me know.

    The other thing I think needs revision is the amount of time per book. Simply doing one less day per each sequential book does not work the best. I think the 80/20 rule applies here: 80% of the valuable information will come from 20% of your reading material. I also think the most valuable part of the experience is creating your own notes, so more time needs to be allocated to that. I have a new timeline I’m experimenting with. If it works I’ll repost.

    The system is still in its “beta” phase. If you try it out, I’d love to hear how it works and what improvements you made to it.
