This book is short but very helpful at understanding how we learn. By understanding how we learn something, we can make better choices on how to learn and what to focus on. It's not a self help book, or something that will promise that you will memorize everything in 30 minutes. It's more like an understand how it works approach. The author uses quotes from professional athletes and artists, as well as theoretical concepts and explanations. Each chapter breaks down one step in the learning / mastering process. It is a down to Earth approach that assumes that no genius is born overnight - creativity or athleisure is a skill that needs practice, repetition, and even more practice in order to get it right. Overral, I enjoyed the book.
