Over the next ten years education will be massively disrupted. Everyone will be able to learn anything they want five to ten times faster than they do now. Tansel Ali has already started this disruption, and in How to Learn (Almost) Anything in 48 Hours he introduces us to concepts and techniques that give the reader tools to learn anything in record time. This enjoyable book also provides practical exercises, tools, tips and tricks to practise these skills not traditionally taught in schools. Congratulations to Tansel for leading the way to faster and better learning, and setting the groundwork for the next decade of education. The future of learning is here.

—Nolan Bushnell, Inventor of Atari Corp

Tansel Ali is a very inspirational speaker and a real down to earth, genuine character who proves that anyone can have a vast, quick and accurate memory if they harness his powerful techniques. The presentation he gave was loads of fun and full of easy to understand, practical techniques we could all use immediately to boost our memory and creativity. Tansel kept everyone engaged and interested throughout the talk by involving the audience in practical memory demonstrations as well as dedicating significant time afterwards to answer many audience questions.


We had Tansel come to present to 100 staff as part of our beginning of the year Professional Development program. The two hours passed very quickly and the feedback from staff, both teaching and general was enthusiastically positive. Tansel not only entertained us with his personal experiences and talent, he also introduced staff to a number of memory technique approaches, which could benefit them in their role within the school and also potentially the students they teach. This was very worthwhile and we would recommend him as a speaker and educator to other schools.
