When this Sumo was going through Sumo school, I never had to "study" for tests like my classmate Ninja Guy (don't ask why he was in Sumo school, I haven't figured it out myself).
He would study hard for a week before the finals, and I would just skim through the chapters a night or two before and would always score higher than him... (high-five!)
He didn't appreciate it much, and so began the fatal feud of Sumo vs. Ninja...
But that's a story for another time.
So imagine my surprise when I found out I had a holistic learning style. Scott Young summarizes that holistic learning as:
"Instead of trying to pound information into your brain with the hopes it will simply fall out when you need it, holistic learning is the process of weaving the knowledge you are learning into everything you already understand."
So while I was breezing by in my academics and getting to where I am today, 512lbs later (fatter) with a thriving business, Ninja guy would STILL be studying like everyone else, wasting time "learning" (while still scrawny).
The great thing is that you can "learn" to learn like this! (It's easier than most people think.)
Scott Young has written quite a few articles (over 850) on getting more from life...
...and he's wrapped the best stuff into a few ebooks.
So if you want to learn things like:
and become a Productivity Guru that will make your friends will absolutely HATE (but also secretly admire) you...
...then you should probably get these ebooks, like right now, because even though we're selling this collection for $37 (normally $57!), it won't last FOREVER (unlike what you'll learn in these books)!

P.S. If there's only ONE thing you get out of these books, it should be the holistic learning. Get that down and the rest of the books will just "sink in" even more so than reading it thrice over and you'll already be 10x ahead of your "Well Educated" friends.
P.P.S "Thinking Outside The Cubicle" is also great if you're a freelancer or someone wanting to start a business on the side even though you "think" you don't have enough time.
