Brain Power (Josh Kaufman)

The human brain weighs a little more than a kilogram and we use it every moment of every day. Yet, so much about our brain remains a mystery. This week on "Full Frame," we’ll meet some of the field’s top researchers who are unlocking the power of the brain.

Imagine learning a brand new skill, anything, in just 20 hours. From speaking a new language or playing an instrument to riding a windsurfing board or even taking amazing photographs. Best-selling author Josh Kaufman says it can be done. And, forget the 10,000-hour rule; he says all you need is what he calls the “Rapid Skill Acquisition” to learn any new skill in just a matter of weeks.

Mike Walter recently sat down with Josh Kaufman, author of the book, “The First 20 Hours”, at the annual Aspen Ideas Festival to discuss his amazing learning method.
