A Little Background Information
First off, while this qualifies to be a review of Superlearner Academy, it’s actually more of an experience share from me to you. Hopefully, this will give you an idea of how the program works and if it is really the right thing for you or not.
Just after completing campus, I got a job at a startup company that trains young people on entrepreneurship and innovation. Well, everything else did not seem out of the ordinary except for this one guy – the practice director, let’s call him Mr. B. Mr. B is one of the senior directors of the company, and since we have a relatively similar educational and career background he ended up taking a keen interest in me.
So every morning, I’d find my job email with 10 links of new articles that I had to read through and share my feedback with him. Of course, he was my boss and I had to do exactly that, though, I have to admit it was such a struggle since I still had to meet other KPIs at the workplace.
As time progressed, I realized I had huge workloads to pay attention to, yet Mr. B was not slowing down. So one day I paid him a visit just to share my experience with him and as we were talking I realized he was actually still reading. One interesting thing about his style of reading is that he’d scroll through a page and finish up in less than 1 minute. So after leaving the office, I decided to also add more to his plate by sending him some of my favorite articles. Interestingly, each of the links I sent to him came back with a half-page in-depth comment. Wow! How did he manage to read so fast and still retain such a high percentage of comprehension?
So, one day as I was browsing through Quora, I came across this thread where people were talking about SuperLearner Academy. That was one year ago. I remember it was a user inquiring about the efficacy of the system or something close to that. What really caught my attention is that Jonathan Levi who I later came to learn is the founder of Super Learner had personally responded to the question. He had also put a link to a Facebook group for those who wanted to learn more.
So, just like that, I decided to check out the group just to get an idea of how real this stuff was. I realized the group had close to 10,000 active members (it’s currently at close to 15K members). What really caught my attention is that strangers were chatting freely and sharing their learning experiences. It was like one big hall where people met to empower one another with the latest reading styles.
