Connecting the Dots

About the Book

The essential guide to learning how to learn for modern day thinkers.

All the world's information is at your fingertips—It's a life-long learners paradise. And yet, today we find ourselves inundated with misinformation and alternative facts. How can we ensure we are loading up our brain with reliable, accurate knowledge in the best way possible?

Connecting the Dots will lead you on a journey through the brain, the mind, the environment, and the future, providing a comprehensive picture of why learning quickly is now indispensable, and how we can best achieve it.



How does the brain form memories, and why is it important that we forget so much of our experience?


What does it take to reach the peaks of knowledge within a field, and should we aim for being the best?


The world is full of misinformation, and we are riddled with biases—how can we overcome them?


When it comes to absorbing knowledge and making sense of the world, what tactics work best?


How can we take our mental faculties to the next level using such things as the state of flow and practicing mindfulness?


How does learning mess with our emotions, and does it lead to happiness?

“I’ve been studying how people learn for many years and yet I was continually surprised by how much I was still learning from Sam while reading this book. This book is thoroughly researched and a joy to read. Highly recommended.”
