Scott H. Young

Special guest

Our guest today is a writer, programmer, traveler, and avid reader of interesting things.

For the last decade he’s been experimenting with finding out how to learn and think better.

In that time he’s written over 1000 articles, and a few ebooks and guides exploring what it means to get more from life - with themes ranging from productivity to learning to the meaning of life.

More recently, his focus has narrowed onto one question: what’s the best way to learn?

This question has formed the basis of much of his later writing as he began to cultivate the belief that learning is the key to living well.

This pursuit has led him to take on two year-long experiments in learning, including: The MIT Challenge, where he attempted to learn MIT’s 4-year computer science curriculum without taking classes, and The Year Without English, where he went with a friend to learn four languages in one year.

So please, help me in welcoming our guest today - author of the Wall Street Journal best selling book, Ultralearning - Scott H Young!
