Before Jim Kwik was recognized as one of the foremost experts in speed-reading, memory improvement, brain performance, and accelerated learning — And a highly sought-out trainer for top organizations like Virgin, Nike, Zappos, NYU, GE, Fox Studios, Harvard, and Singularity University — Jim was known as “the boy with the broken brain.”
At five years old, Jim suffered a head injury that left him with severe learning challenges, and as a result, he struggled throughout his schooling years. What would take most students weeks or months, took Jim years to master… including learning how to read. He read considerably slower. He absorbed and understood less. And learning anything new was an uphill battle.
Hoping to compensate for these challenges, Jim double-downed on his efforts in college. But spending hours in the library, single-mindedly focused on his studies came at cost. He hardly ate. He hardly slept. And in a dangerously weakened state, weighing only 117 pounds, Jim passed out, falling down a flight of stairs, and once again, sustained further head injuries.
Jim woke up in the hospital two full days later.
But it was during his recovery in the hospital that he had the one epiphany that would change the entire trajectory of his life. It occurred to him that his entire education revolved around being taught what to learn — Math, science, geography, Spanish… — But never once was he taught how to learn.
This single thought became his obsession.
As Jim began to unravel how the human brain really works, he developed strategies to dramatically enhance his mental performance. And as he saw more success, he began teaching his newfound techniques to his fellow students. As the leading expert in brain performance, memory improvement, and speed reading, Jim now hosts the #1 training podcast on iTunes, has taught people from over 180 countries, and he is the go-to Brain Coach for CEOS, lawyers, rocket scientists and Hollywood’s biggest stars — all of whom depend on remembering what they read.
And Jim will show you how in this Masterclass.
