Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski were taking us to a pragmatic still scientifically sound journey of deep learning. As an educator and life-long learner I enjoyed it very much. Some tips are surprisingly simple, even counterintuitive (e.g. "Don't mark too much in your textbook"). But most of them worked quite effectively for me. You still have to invest effort in your learning, but it can be fun, too. I was particularly impressed by the story of Barbara Oakley. She is a living example for a successful learner and acquired knowledge and skills areas "she was not gifted for". Highly recommended.
