The Art of Learning

The Art of Learning

Josh Waitzkin

Overview

You may have heard about Josh Waitzkin from Tim Ferriss. Ferriss has not only had Waitzkin on his podcast a couple times, but also tried to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under his guidance in an episode of his TV show, The Tim Ferriss Experiment.

Waitzkin is incredibly passionate about learning itself, more so than about any particular skill field or industry. That also explains how he could just quit chess at the age of 23, in spite of being one of the most promising players of all time, and jump straight into martial arts.

In 2008, he wrote The Art Of Learning to share what he's learned about what it takes to become a top performer – regardless of whether or not you're particularly talented.
