Scott Young: How to Master Hard Skills and Learn Anything

Scott Young is a writer, programmer, traveler and an avid learner. After Scott heard about Benny Lewis and the way he could become fluent in a language in just 3 months, he became interested in extreme learning and began exploring it himself. He later went on to study one of MIT's 4-year computer science degrees, relying solely on external material and without ever going to any MIT lectures. He passed the final exams. Scott joins us for this episode to impart his knowledge on ultra-learning.
