Any takers?

I'm bumping PEAK to the top of my reading list after I get from vacation (which is for fiction reading) in mid August so throwing it out here to see if anybody else wants to read in a similar time frame for discussion? 

As I brought up in a different thread as it's a book that I've been meaning to read for a few months but the premise seems to be striking home a bit more lately when it comes to pre/post FIRE expectation settings.

How to be a better writer, improve health, learn a language etc.  Or feel free to start reading and the discussion now and I'll jump in when I catch up.

I read this ~2 months ago and my overall impression was nothing new.  I have been interested with the authors ideas for a long time and have read quite a few book about learning and performance so I was already familiar with most of the material covered in this book.

I would suggest checking out Make It Stick by Peter Brown for a great read and some new and useful ideas about how to learn effectively.  I really enjoyed the read and have used a lot of his suggestions.
