Good one!!!

It's really inspiring and motivating to learn or master a skill if we commit our selves for 20 hours. The author mainly focuses on explaining the things how he did learn the things. First of all, I came to know the book, after watching TEdx video of "josh kaufman" 20 hours of learning in you tube. I really loved the concept of Josh, I then learned there is a book written on that. Searched for it. Ordered it. And completed half of the book. The first few pages explains us how to learn anyting...

A good one...

It's really a good book, the book contains a few chapters of theory about how the things are to be broken and learnt. The remaining chapters contain an example of the same things in various domains of learning.

This a good start-up kit for developing any skills fast. I particularly liked the chapter on programming, the tips for building rapid skill in any programming language of your choice. The book also gives good insights on how the brain learns new skills and sticks them on to our memory.
