What Everyone Should Know About Super-efficient Learning
The best way to learn is to first understand how the process of learning works.

Super-efficient learning doesn’t need to be a trick to work well. It simply means recognizing what is actually going on when you reach a new level of insight and finding approaches to help you reach those stages consistently.

It is possible to vastly enhance most learning. The old belief that one can be too old to learn, or a new skill requires years to learn, is toxic thinking. While it is true that mastery (top 1%) takes time and practice, it is likely that one can learn and become excellent at a lot of things in a matter of months (not years!), by applying proper learning strategies.

This book will help you become a super-efficient learner. It presents 10 powerful learning principles that will super-charge your learning.

You will find many helpful tips and actionable items in this book. Even only applying a handful of them to your learning will help you become more efficient. I promise!

This Should Be in Every Home & Office Library!
Whether you are a layperson or someone working within the various fields of finance itself, this is an indispensable reference book to have at your fingertips. It not only defines the specific words and phrases but clearly explains the concepts behind them. In our current world of nanosecond trading, wildly fluctuating global markets and ever more 'creative' financial instruments, this essential volume belongs in everyone’s library, virtual or otherwise!

Martin Steiner

Highly Recommend This Clear and Thorough Financial Dictionary
I have been looking a long time for a truly thorough financial dictionary like this one. While there are other competing products on the market, none of them give me full 600+ word length explanations (for every alphabetized term) that are clear enough for even a layman like myself to understand. I also recommend the other editions of this Financial Dictionary that are tailored more specifically to certain areas of financial concentration, like real estate, investments, and trading.They are especially helpful for equity investors and real estate investors alike.These financial dictionary collections are must-haves for any person who is serious about having a terrific, ready financial educational resource at his or her fingertips.

Angus McClarenon

Great Resource!
What a great resource! I had actually been through a short sale, but never really understood the process until I read Mr Herold's book. This book is equally valuable to the experienced and the novice reader. I particularly appreciated the easy to use-alphabetical table of contents.
