Chapter 28. Superlearning

You've been meaning to learn Smalltalk or to become proficient in Java or to master the Unified Modeling Language, but there are only so many hours in the day, your client-server project is overdue, and your kids actually would like to see you sometime before they finish high school. Try superlearning! The promos say that you can learn object orientation in an hour. Or a foreign language in three seconds. Superlearning, accelerated learning, multi-sensory education. Powerful new techniques developed by the Russians or the Bulgarians or the Texans. Wouldn't it be great? Slip on some headphones, drift off, and wake up knowing COM and the complete Windows API. Or slip into a lecture, blow your whistle a few times, and walk out thinking objects. Don't you wish?

Today it's sleep-learning and subliminal reprogramming of the unconscious, but it all started with audio training programs, foreign language courses on cassette and, before that, on LPs and even 78s. Which brings me to Sputnik.
