Beyond Brilliance


   

OUR SCHOOLS LIED TO US

Growing up, we were taught that intelligence is fixed—you're either smart, or you aren't. That having a knack for a subject is a matter of inborn talent. That in order to get top grades (which lead to top jobs), you need to study all the time, sacrifice sleep, give up sports, say "no" to parties, AND be naturally "brilliant".

Trouble is, science knows that's all crap, so we wrote a book to prove it. To show students everywhere that there is a better, faster, and easier way to succeed in school and develop mastery (backed by decades of science).

It's called learning how to learn.

Learning is the ultimate skill


I mean really think about it, if you're good at learning, you can use that to get good at anything you like.

WE'LL TEACH YOU (PRACTICALLY) EVERYTHING


a ridiculous OFFER: We will pay you back if you read our book

Our goal with this book isn’t to take your money. What we really care about is that as many students as possible read this book and internalize the message. That's why we've made the PDF version available for free here. You're welcome!

Now, if you're thinking "That's great! But I'm picky and would really prefer to have a physical copy", don't worry: 

If you purchase a copy on Amazon and send us a short message proving you read the book, we will give you your money back. Really? Yes, full refund (and you get to keep the book)!

So, how does that work?

Within three months after purchasing your book, do these two things:

  1. Send a copy of your receipt to IReadBeyondBrilliance@gmail.com: we need to know you actually paid.
  2. Then choose one of the following to send together with the receipt:
    • Write an honest review on Amazon.
    • Write a testimonial or an email asking us questions that show you’ve read the book.

If you can think of other ways, that’s fine too. The point is: prove to us you read the book, and get your money back. Or, you can tell us to give it to charity.

This is the charity we will give it to: Equal Opportunity Schools
