Review

A blockbuster in the making. After reading this book, you'll be ready to take on any number of skills and make progress on that big project you've been putting off for years (Chris Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup)

Great opportunities are worthless without skills. No more excuses! Kaufman proves that we all have the capacity to become experts (Scott Belsky, founder, Behance, and author of Making Ideas Happen)

If you're like me, you'll get so inspired that you'll stop reading to apply this approach to your own procrastinated project. After reading the first five chapters I tried his technique to learn a new programming language, and I'm blown away with how fast I became fluent (Derek Sivers, founder, CD Baby, sivers.org)

In this inspiring little book, Josh Kaufman argues that you can get good enough at anything to enjoy yourself in just 20 hours. All that's standing between you and playing the ukulele is your TV time for the next two weeks (Laura Vanderkam, author of 168 Hours and What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast)

With the amount of information and change in the world today, the person who can adapt and learn the most quickly will be the most successful. Kaufman breaks down the science of learning in useful, entertaining, and fascinating ways. If you care about keeping your job, your business, or your edge, this book is for you (Pamela Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation)

From the Back Cover

What would you like to learn? How to paint a great portrait, launch a business, play piano... or even fly an airplane?

The only thing holding you back is the time and effort it will take. But there is a way to go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing well, with just 20 hours of practice.

Josh Kaufman, author of the international bestseller The Personal MBA, has developed a brilliantly simple approach to help you learn anything. He shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, make the most of your time, and clear away obstacles in your path.

The First 20 Hours helps you pick up any skill in record time... and have much more fun along the way.


'A blockbuster in the making. After reading this book, you'll be ready to take on any number of skills and make progress on that big project you've been putting off for years'
