    Long on stories and talk about celebrity friends. Long on recommending free online videos that are hour long adverts for expensive courses with zero content. The book has virtually no useful content. It’s just a very long and full marketing pamphlet. Read the work of Tony Buzan instead. Much more useful content. Some of the anecdotes are stolen directly from Tony who popularised these ideas decades 30+ years ago.

    Good read Not disappointed with Kwik's book. But if you've dug the internet about him and especialy his YouTube, most notions he presents in the book are a wrap up of that together with many great book references and borrowed ideas. There's no denying he does offer some novelty and he's talented at wording it. However if you're a voracious consumer of the contemporary self-help best-sellers then you'll notice the spin-offs.

There's no denying he does offer some novelty and he's talented at wording it. However if you're a voracious consumer of the contemporary self-help best-sellers then you'll notice the spin-offs. The parts where he inserted self-advertisement of his other products irritated me a bit and disrupted some of the content experience for me and the 25% end of the book was just references and index (which was too much for any book I'm reading and I've put this in reviews before). If you're not a voracious book reader then this book will all be new to you and I encourage you to read it. Some advice from it was really great and helpful and his methods of shrinking big ideas into acronyms has always been an easy tool. Expect repetitions of his work head to toe if you're already familiar with him in the media.

    Have you ever seen the movie Limitless? Eddie Morra(the main protagonist played by Bradley Cooper) complains about his lack of creativity in writing to Vernon, the brother of his ex-wife. Vernon wants to help and gives him an exclusive product, a pill called NZT-48, and says "They say we can only access 20 percent of our brains... well, this lets you access all of it!". and it did!

One day I was complaining about being a slow reader to a friend... she wanted to help me and recommended this book and It's working! I just feel like I am LIMITLESS now this book is just like that NZT-48 pill believe me! now I read a little faster than before(I practice every day) I study and work more organized and smarter than before I sleep better now I eat and drink healthier I am highly focused on things I do and my memory is getting better and better every day. there is an assignment in the book about improving your memory, and the author wants you to memorize 10 words in the order they are given. I used his technique to memorize them, it was about a week or two weeks ago that I read that page, and now that I am writing this review I still can remember them in order. Fire Hydrant - Diamond Balloon - Knight Battery - Ox Barrel - Toothpaste Board - Sign I am surprised! how can I remember such a random list( and believe me all I did was to give it a minute and visualize them in a funny way)... all I have to say is Read this book and upgrade your brain. Thank you Diana

    Such a great, informative book filled with research, inspiring quotes and Jim’s own personal stories to connect it all together. I finished it in 2 days and I am very familiar with Jim’s work and had heard about a lot of this book’s concept but will highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking to take ahold of their brains and understand it better! Lots of very practical and helpful tips!

    Had high hopes. Can't recommend. I felt like the book was almost completely composed of ripped off tidbits from various well known self development authors. When he does explain some of his techniques explicitly, it is as shallow of a treatment possible. The rest of the space was filled by advertisement for his online courses, which I assume is the main reason he wrote the book. I feel like he does know his stuff and those courses may very be great, but this book is not. I really hoped it was go Had high hopes. Can't recommend.

    The first 50% of this book is his story about wanting to be a superhero and how there’s a ‘superhero in all of us’. Ok... and then the rest of the book talks about eating healthy, sleeping well, and believing in yourself. I was stubborn enough to finish it, but I would not recommend this to others.

    I honestly cannot understand the hype behind this book. I found this in the bargain bin seeing the positive Amazon and Goodreads (usually much more stingy). It feels extremely Sales-pitchy and surface-level all throughout and I kept waiting for it to get better: it did not. Jim Kwik is an extremely accomplished and impressive man (clearly) but this particular book did not do it for me.

    “We’ve learned more about the brain in the past decade than in the previous course of history.” Maybe once upon a time, while amid a daydream you imagined that you had a photographic memory and with that photographic memory you had the key to unlock the dreams of your choice. It abounds wealth, friends and lovers abundant, fame and appreciation rained down on you like confetti. Well, this is the life of Jim Kwik. You were dreaming you were him. Master brain coach Jim Kwik has, as bewildering as it “We’ve learned more about the brain in the past decade than in the previous course of history.” Maybe once upon a time, while amid a daydream you imagined that you had a photographic memory and with that photographic memory you had the key to unlock the dreams of your choice. It abounds wealth, friends and lovers abundant, fame and appreciation rained down on you like confetti. Well, this is the life of Jim Kwik. You were dreaming you were him. Master brain coach Jim Kwik has, as bewildering as it seems, become a superstar of teaching people the same techniques of the mind that have been available to anyone with a library card for the past 25 years. Yet his book Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster and Unlock Your Exceptional Life, is flying off the shelves faster than you can say ‘kwik’. “Our most precious gift is our brain. It is what allows us to learn, love, think, create and even to experience joy.” Limitless reads like an internet marketing freebie, ‘here are lots of things that I am great at and you can be to’. Which is true. Mr Kwik is not wrong. The techniques he presents work. His research is sound. I can attest to that as I have used many of the same techniques in my own memory practice. I happen to agree with just about everything he says in Limitless. Where this book fails for me is with the surface coverage and scope of a subject which requires more depth. His stories of his time spent hanging out with Wolverine and Cyclops are self aggrandizing and his ambivalence to the promises he makes to his readers is disingenuous. In his own words he speaks of the fact that he worked his memory to the point of hospitalization yet one gets the feeling that he is selling the promise that by reading this book or signing up for his online seminar you too will be fluent in Mandarin and remembering the names of everyone you meet. “Through deep practice, ignition, master coaching, anyone can develop a talent so deep it looks like genius.” Jim’s super and limitless memory is spectacular, his strategies for teaching and learning hit the mark. It also is not as though the book was all bad. It is an easy read; I imagine it would do a marvelous job of motivating and inspiring a neophyte and I believe he is correct in stating that your mind is an incredible technology and with dedication you could develop a super memory that will unlock the doors to a limitless life. More pep talk and sales pitch than playbook or field manual. Overall Score: 2.4 / 5 In a Sentence: A book that won’t teach you how to get a limitless memory, but will tell all about what it is like to have one.

    As an intracranial bleed survivor who was in NRICU for 2 months in an induced coma at 56, who recovered 100% while also learned many new skills as Japanese, watercoloring, calligraphy, financial planning and investment strategies, Kwik's book offered nothing new while the reader was forced to know about his whole life history, his celebrity friends and of course, how amazing he is. As one broken brain(someone once insulted him with the phrase) to another: "Been there, done that, no, thank you."

    A written version of the podcast If you listen to the podcast, you already have all the information needed from this book. If you haven't listened to the podcast and you get value out of reading, then you will find some value in this book. Be warned: A LOT OF ACRONYMS involved with this book. As an aside, some of our moms were horrible people and we'd rather not remember them even if it is a memory device. Really, save yourself the money and listen to the podcast.

    If you can skip around some (ok, I think it's a little more than "some") fillers, this book is ok. There are several really useful memory techniques which I'll put into practice. And I'll never forget, without using those techniques, that reading Jim's childhood story is really touching and inspiring.

I'm just saying that the book is quite repetitive if you already follow Jim and other Mind Hack techniques. I definitely recommend people getting this book if you want to improve your memory, learning capacity, brain health, and speed reading. Jim also is a self-help guy, he doesn't want people to just learn to memorize, but learn how to apply and use this knowledge. Anyway, "f knowledge is power, learning is your superpower" - Jim Kwik I recommend, "Moonwalking with Einstein," and "Unlimited Memory," the two books that got me in this path.

I looked for books to teach me about the brain and learning faster. 2. What is the book about? Central idea? We must learn how to learn. We need to break free from limiting beliefs and eliminate myths, and learn faster in a world where knowledge is expanding ever faster. Growth mindset at the core. 3. What problem was the author trying to solve? What is the structure of the book? What one wish would have the biggest impact in learning? Learning how to learn. This breaks down into three sections of the book 1. Mindset (what), 2. motivation (why) and 3. methods (how) 4. Who is the author? Jim Kwik is a widely recognized world expert in memory improvement, brain optimization, and accelerated learning. 5. What did I know about the subject? I have read the “learning revolution” by Jeanette Vos and “The art of learning” by josh waitzkin and a book on memory techniques. 6. How can this information affect your life? Knowing why you want to learn is so key. Also “the spell of belief systems” and ”the 7 lies of learning” are very important to unlimited learning. 7. Three key takeaways? Ideas and insights? Three key questions to always remember when learning: • How can I use this? • Why must I use this? • When will I use this? 8. When was it published by whom? The book was published by Hay House 2020. 9. Is the evidence compelling? Yes change from fixed to a growth mindset! Read carol dwecks book “mindset”. The science behind is logical and is based on how the brain actually works not on received traditional ways of learning. This also can include the theory of multiple intelligences. 10. Further implications? What of it? Always be active when learning! Always know why you are reading and learning Always have reading as a habit - it’s like going to the gym for the brain Use active recall - read something and then try to reconstruct it fast. Use visualization more in memory and the loci method - this is the way the brain remembers. 11. Did my life change reading this book? Yes my mindset changed a bit towards a more optimistic and growth mindset. 12. Can I explain to an 8 year old? One sentence summary? Active learning is the key! 7 lies of learning: • Intelligence is fixed • We only use 10% of our brains • Mistakes are failures • Knowledge is power • Learning new things is very difficult • The criticism of other people matters • Genius is born (it’s not - it’s made) 13. Quotes Jim’s story is fascinating recovering from a childhood brain injury: ”We walked back to the house where he took me to a room that I’d never seen before. It was filled wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling with books. Now remember, at that point in my life, I was not a fan of books; it was like being in a room full of snakes. Bit what made it even worse was that he started grabbing snakes from his shelves and handing them to me. I looked at the titles and realized these were biographies of incredible men and women throughout history, as well as some early personal-growth books such as The Magic of Thinking Big, The Power of Positive Thinking, and Think and Grow Rich.  “Jim I want you to read one of these books a week” page 9-10 “He held up a finger, saying, “Don’t let school interfere with your education.” I later learned that he was paraphrasing a quote often attributed to Mark Twain. In short a fantastic book on learning complete with mindsets, motivation and methods. Update 2020-09-26 Chapter 4 key concepts: Forgetting curve Primacy Recency FASTER; Forget what you know. Forget what’s not important. Forget limitations. Act: be active. Take notes. Do all exercises. Highlight key ideas. State: all learning is state-dependent Teach others and use in social situations Enter into daily schedule and routine Review: active recall and spaced repetition Mental models

    For the first 33% or so of the book I found myself strongly agreeing with alot of the author’s proclamations, so much so that I occasionally gave in to the urge to acknowledge this verbally in what might be some of the usual ways for my demographic - “Hell Yeah!”, “Amen!”, “Right On!” etc. (yes aloud, a bit). The rest of the reading also was very good albeit the good stuff wasn’t as concentrated for me, partially perhaps because he sometimes seemed to be unnecessarily long-winded.

Another slight annoyance was him plugging his website every 12 pages or so. I understand that the book is part of the business he is running though so I’m not “hating” for the nudges, and in fact they may help practice some of the speed-reading tactics near the end of the book. There are other exercises throughout, none of which I tried due to having a deadline to complete it, but I believe they indeed might be helpful so I plan to keep this close by to try them out eventually.

    The book arrangement could be better. I would start with “part IV limitless methods” and then go on with the (“success”) stories of celebrities and the other stuff. The stories where a bit on the long side. This book would help Jim in his courses/speeches career. An introduction to a JK course. But never the less it is “an introduction” for some excellent search terms on YouTube. You will find great materials to expand on “learning how to learn” “speed reading” “brain foods”...etc

    I just finished another book and it is AWESOME! The title, Limitless, sets a high bar and the book meets the expectations and beyond. I have been following Jim Kwik for a while on social media and his podcast so when I heard that he was working on a book, I got excited. Yes, this is a true fan review. I was worried that it would not live up to the expectations, but if you look at the list of guests he has had on his podcast and the interviews he has given, you know he would have whatever resources I just finished another book and it is AWESOME!

I was worried that it would not live up to the expectations, but if you look at the list of guests he has had on his podcast and the interviews he has given, you know he would have whatever resources he needed to blow this thing out of the water. I would have finished sooner, but Jim suggests reading it in smaller chunks of time to learn the material better. That struck me as ironic from someone that teaches speed-reading. While comprehension can be high with speed-reading (when done properly), retention can be improved by limiting the amount consumed in one sitting. I took it one step further, by using one of the lessons from the book. I used spaced repetition and usually started each reading session by rereading the last page or two from the last reading session I did. Anyway, if you want to #upgradeyourbrain and #learnanythingfaster so you can join me in unlocking my exceptional life, buy this book

His book has fundamental lifelong learning strategies to help you remember and achieve your goals.

However I'm happy that Jim wrote this book because I see how I can improve on his concept in the book I'm writing. I know for a fact that Jim is holding a whole lot of useful strategies back in this book. He is most likely using it for three reasons: 1. To give people a kick start into the life of lifelong learning 2. More exposure for his brand 3. So he can sell his higher ticketed online courses which have the juicy takeaways which will get you actual results. If you're a beginner then you'll learn a whole lot from Jim's book but if you want to take it a step further and learn what it truly means to be a lifelong learner then I highly recommend taking my online course called The 6 Principles of Lifelong Learning at http://bookmattic.com

    I already had all the information from listening to Jim's podcast or free materials that he delivers time after time. And it felt like most chapters were just a recap of other books, a shallow recap. I'm disappointed because I expected much more depth in this book.

    A quick summary of this book would be that it's a mix of two types of content: First there are lots of incredible tips, techniques and mental models for getting the best out of yourself, second there are several real-life stories of the author and his clients using these tips or facing some type of challenges. I found most of the things in the first group to be quite interesting and novel, so I started using them right away as I learned them, but the stories in the second group bored me at times A quick summary of this book would be that it's a mix of two types of content: First there are lots of incredible tips, techniques and mental models for getting the best out of yourself, second there are several real-life stories of the author and his clients using these tips or facing some type of challenges. I found most of the things in the first group to be quite interesting and novel, so I started using them right away as I learned them, but the stories in the second group bored me at times and gave me the feeling they were aimed at people who have cognitive difficulties or have self-confidence issues; which is not bad, you just have to know what you're signing up for. Still would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking to perform at their best. The content in the book addresses the following topics: • Things that are bad for your brain's health (several are related to mis-use of technology) • The role motivation, mindset and methods play in how we perform. • Brain physiology and mechanisms • Techniques to read and remember everything, as well as for fast reading. (Started doing them and they are really effective) • What is mindset, why it's important and how your belief system conditions what you do and how you do it. • How to tap into your motivation in order to achieve more. He does an AMAZING review of how your values, passion and purpose are interconnected and how to get the most out of them; also has great tips for managing your energy and putting yourself physically in the best shape possible. • What is flow and how to best achieve it. • How to train yourself to be more focused • Memory techniques to remember everything (the visualization technique is incredibly powerful, have been using it and I'm able to recall SO MUCH without notes) • A process for examining your thinking and make sure you are seeing a problem from all angles. • Mental models for attacking complex issues like decision making, handling errors and planning for the future.

J Jim has an amazing ability to help you unlock your abilities and inspire you to better use your brain. Whenever I watch any Jim Kwik video, I am always mesmerised with how he inspires everyone and provides really actionable tactics to help anyone improve their memory, reading, thinking, focus and learning activities. This is why I was super excited to get the book. The book is a very easy read and helps the reader understand the limitless model which encompasses Mindset, Motivation and Methods. Jim starts with explaining why this is important especially today when we are affected by Digital Dementia and Digital Deduction where the dependency on technology is actually stopping us from using our brains effectively, have better recall and read and learn better. I think this is a very important part of the book as it sets the scene outlining what the issues are and then very clearly makes a statement that this can all be fixed. We can turn on the power and tap into the neuroplasticity of our brain. It obviously needs a system and training and this is what the remainder of the book lays out. Part 2 of the book covers the WHAT aspect, the MINDSET and discusses possibility. It covers some really useful concepts on belief systems and the 7 lies of learning. Part 3 covers the WHY, the MOTIVATION and focusses on purpose, energy, flow and small simple steps. Part 4 covers the HOW, the METHODS and discusses Focus, Study, Memory, Speed Reading and Thinking. This is comprehensive gives practical exercises What I love about the book: - It is packed with wisdom to help you to reflect and take action - It is packed with actionable tools, each chapter has sections called Kwik Start which prompt you to do something, write something or outline a technique. (I have included a photo showing an example of this) - It comes with a 10 Day video course called Kwik Start which can be used along with the book. It has great content and Jim inspires as he teaches this - It makes you BELIEVE that you can learn better and it helps you see this by giving you the tools and helping you develop the mindset - Every page is packed with useful information. This is not about Jim showing us how good he is. No waffle, no trying to repeat unnecessary things. The book delivers high-quality content on every page. There are dedicated pages for quotes but these add value to a book designed to be functional, a great reference guide and support to implement action. - It provides a framework to help train your brain. You won't improve just by reading the book, you will have to do the exercise and have a training regimen. Jim helps you to implement this. If you want to tap into your limitless potential and discover your Superpowers. If you want to be a better learner to improve all areas of your life then this is a great book to read. I highly recommend this book for anyone of any age. Use it not only for yourself but everyone else in your life. It will be life-changing but only if you read and implement it.

Parts of the book felt like the author was more concerned about telling random stories just to name drop celebrities and sell his other work . “ Check out my website to see my interview with Will smith the movie star!” “ Go to my podcast linked here and listen to my interview with the director of marvel! “ I found it tacky and it watered down the core lessons in the book for me. However the lessons learned in this book are useful and I will be implementing a few into my daily routine. Overall an interesting read.
