Scott Young is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author, podcast host, computer programmer, and avid reader. Since 2006, he has published weekly essays on his website to help people learn and think better. His work has been featured in The New York Times, BBC, TEDx, Pocket, Business Insider, and more.
Scott started writing his blog just before his 18th birthday, so in many ways, it has mirrored his own life as an adult. The blog started when he was very interested in behavior change, so you can see many articles about that obsession. Later he left for university and began considering socializing and productivity as topics to explore. Learning became an important topic, and eventually created the foundation for a full-time business he could run, selling courses to learners about the methods he’d uncovered.
Finally, as he left school, the idea of continued self-mastery and career development interested Scott. Beyond writing, entrepreneurship, and life philosophy, his interests include programming, travel, cooking, and teaching himself anything he can. Scott is the author of the book Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition and Accelerate Your Career, a Wall Street Journal bestseller.
