One extenuating circumstance would be that I’ve been again in a rush an in need of an airplane companion. Another is that I saw Oakley’s class at the Coursera and thought that a book might be its useful substitute.
I won’t write much because there isn’t much to write about.
Book’s content is neither related to math, nor sciencce despite the title.
It is another one of the hoards of self help books. Its message is also simple and does not require the 200+ pages the author devotes to it (spoilers): if you want to learn something than a) do your homework, b) exercise consistently as you are not going to acquire persistent k owledge in a learning blitz, c) may be use a pomodoro technique.
The bottom line is that the book is worth neither time, nor money it costs.
