How do you conquer that endless reading list? And even if you do get around to reading, how do you process all that new information? In this course I will teach you a system for extracting information from the books you read, so that you get more reading done, learn more, and make that information more useful to you in the future.
I will help you implement a system to read books faster and get the information you want from them.
Get More Out of Your Books
The endless list of books that you want to read sometimes stunts us from even beginning. And even those who do read regularly do not have a great system for actually getting the most from those books. By implementing the system this course teaches, students will begin to conquer their reading list, and feel confident that the information that they learn will be close by for the rest of their lives.Even in the age of blog posts and reddit threads, people still know their is value in reading the books of experts. Students who take this course will have a system in place to learn from those great minds who put the best of their knowledge into the books they write.
I wish I had this information back in high school and college. Perfect system for teachers and public speakers to organize topics and information from textbooks. Thanks Danny! — Keith Campbell, Udemy Review
Content and Overview
The course begins with providing you some tips and encouragement to make more time for reading. The more intentional someone is about reading regularly, the more it will become a life-long habit.
Although not a speed reading course, a section of the course is devoted to helping students to read at a faster pace. I cover both hard copy and eBook reading.
The actual system of information extraction is thoroughly presented to the student, so that they clearly understand the steps taken through a book to get the information you wish to retain.

I'm passionate about equipping the next generation of Christian leaders with the proper tools and knowledge necessary to responsibly interpret God's Word. My full-time job, blog, online courses, mobile apps, and YouTube videos all come out of this passion, and I hope you find it useful.

I'm passionate about being as industrious as possible, and enjoy helping others do so as well. I'm a fairly regular reader of leadership, personal growth, and productivity articles and books, and like to pass on this knowledge through my blog and ebooks.
I'm passionate about my tools. Many people say a carpenter is only as good as his tools – this is true of almost every vocation. I'm a bit of a tech ninja, not because I love technology but because I have long recognized how the right tech and software can be extremely helpful and time-saving.
