I read an article by gary north http://lewrockwell.com/north/north1148.html and it mentions rothbard having amazing memory and reading abilities, i think i also remember hearing a similar anecdote about rothbard from jeffrety tucker in some lecture.
there have been cases before of people having amazing recall before but never has it been to such a good use, is this purely a gift from god or can such a talent be cultivated somehow
and even if we accept that his memory capacity was innate then i still dont buy it that people are born with a gene for speedreading.
so how did rothbard do it?
He was really smart and he read and wrote a lot.
While this forum might have done some interesting reading on the matter, we generally read more economics and history. Hence, you might fare better posting your question to a biology or psychology forum. We do, of course, welcome all questions, though.
i dont really want books on mnemonics or speedreading, i was merely wondering that perhaps he himself had elaborated on his powers. maybe not in print but during discussions with some of his students or friends
