A few years ago, Amazon released a fascinating statistic: Almost 85% of all books about professional or personal development are gifts for other people. Think of the last time you received a book about professional or personal development from someone else. Chances are that it’s still gathering dust on your bookshelf.
What this means is that key information is out there, but it’s usually ignored. This opens up enormous opportunities for those who quickly want to become experts in their chosen field.
The formula is simple: Read one book about your subject every week and test at least a single idea from each book.
After one year you have absorbed the information of more than 50 books and tested more than 50 new ideas. This will make you a preeminent expert in your field.
