    1. I like Elder Bednar, of course My father in law gave me this book because it was gifted to him for Christmas and he started reading it, then decided it was way over his head so he gave it to me.I don t think it s actually way over anybody s head, it s just not going to be interesting for everyone.My issue with this book is that it was 4 very short chapters, then at the end of each chapter there is a whole bunch of additional reading material comprised of conference talks and scripture, all of wh [...]


    2. Very few books have struck such a harmonious chord within me I love learning I love learning about learning I secretly packed inspirational and like books with me all through my collegiate years I would snack on math and then sneak off somewhere to feast on a book from the brethren Little did I know what was in store for me later in life Learning is uniquely personal we all learn in different ways This book is inspired It s timing is inspired Its content is inspired It has added kindling to a sm [...]


    3. This is a book that needs to be studied and applied to life to be of true worthwhile So I have been studying I have also been participating in an online book club discussion about the book sponsored by Deseret Books Each time I read the section up next for discussion with the online book club, I end up taking notes even though my only intent has been to just refresh the week s topic of discussion I suspect that I will soon be indicating I ve read studied the last page of this book, I will not b [...]


    4. I love the way Elder Bednar thinks and his desire to learn and understand This book is not one of stories, but of answers to why we learn how to fully increase in knowlege and understanding His insights were enlightening and the talks included in this book there are several for each chapter are great resources of additional information I loved the questions at the end of each chapter and area for notes on each page I feel I got so much out of this book because of the time I took to ponder and [...]


    5. I really liked this book It is a little difficult to read, I think, if you just want to read it like a novel or something it s not designed for that and it doesn t talk about things you can read in that way I kept notes as I read I didn t use the DVD, nor did I read every single additional reading for each chapter Rather, I read the chapters, and if the heading or introduction of an additional reading caught my attention I read through it I feel it made me a better student, for sure Some of the [...]


    6. This book was amazing Elder Bednar wrote it to help people gain a better understanding about how to gain answers for ourselves, through the spirit, on any subject.The book comes with a DVD inside, where he discusses some of the concepts of the book with a group of college students who read an advanced copy of the book.This book opened my eyes in new ways It s hard to express the ways that I was changed by this book However, there were a few themes that I thought were very powerful I ll share a f [...]


    7. Elder Bednar truly has a gift for taking seemingly disparate strands of the gospel and weaving them together into an inspiring tapestry.Each of the four chapters in this book builds on the last While the basic concepts can be stated fairly simply, each provides a wealth of possibilities for personal study and contemplation.The first chapter, An Individual Responsibility to Learn focuses on the gospel truth that we are to be agents to act for ourselves and not objects to be acted upon In other wo [...]


    8. This definitely had me thinking deep and long about what I am doing in my life and how I can do better.Popsugar 2017 a book written by someone you admire


    9. This book took me forever to read I didn t even read it the way Elder Bednar wants you to read it In the preface he writes This volume is not intended to be a quick, casual, or relaxing read As you progress through the chapters you will need to read, study, ponder, search, ask, knock, record thoughts and feelings, link, connect, revise, rethink, ask again, start again, and most important act For this reason the book is formatted with extra wide margins and blank pages in the back so you can make [...]


    10. If I could, I would give this book 10 stars It s fabulous And it s not even because of what s written in it, necessarily It s the principles and doctrines Elder Bednar teaches This book is all about learning for yourself, being spiritually and physically self reliant, and focusing on doctrines and principles to change behavior I think the most inspiring part of this book for me is the framework he gives for solving problems, helping others and ourselves to change behaviors and habits He uses que [...]


    11. Increase in Learning takes you on a very In depth spiritual journey where we can all reflect where our testimony of the gospel lies I really enjoyed all of the video segments that Elder Bednar did with a religion class he was teaching at the time I love how he wants us to go find the answers we have to the questions we ask, because instead of him giving us all the answers to the universe so to speak he wants to increase our learning by study and also by pray that in turn our faith and testimony [...]


    12. This is an amazing book Elder Bednar has an amazing gift for teaching He is a master at giving you enough information to find your own answer without denying you the learning experience of finding the answer for yourself The videos were an added bonus My favorite chapter was on knowledge, understanding, and intelligence For any who have ever heard me teach the Stickman principle, I felt like this chapter took it even deeper I felt like this book got me thinking on a deeper level about doctrines [...]


    13. At first I didn t care for this book With all the hype, I wasn t digging the first chapter or even the related readings But as I delved deeper and really let myself get into this book, I loved every minute reading this book It is incredibly insightful and eye opening It helped me realize some things I need to do better with This is not a book that will give you ideas and suggestions on how to do things, but instead prompts you to do them yourself and find out how to do them yourself The related [...]


    14. I have always enjoyed the things Elder Bednar has said over the pulpit and so I was very excited to pick up one of his books A lot of what was written is things that have already been published either through BYU speeches, General Conference, or other articles of the ensign That being said, I still recommend reading this book, even if you are already familiar with a lot of his work He adds many ideas and has sections where you can apply the teaching deeply into your personal life Included is a [...]


    15. David Bednar expressed reservations about his ability to convey his message in a book format spiritual learning is a process that has to be discovered and experienced, not just taught At first some of the deeper principles he explores seem too simple, but take on depth when you really think I finished reading the text, the included further readings talks and articles given over the past years by Elder Bednar , and watched all the video segments, but I m still not finished with this book I need t [...]


    16. This book was not what I expected However, I learned than I thought I would While reading the book I felt a bit lost After watching the DVD that comes with it I understood what Elder Bednar was trying to do with this book, and I appreciate it I have already incorporated a lot of his teachings into my personal life It s a life changing book with plenty of opportunities to be taught, personally, by the Holy Ghost ps I didn t read the Kindle edition It was the actual hard copy.pps It really helped [...]


    17. This is GREAT book There are so many wonderful little nuggets of information and inspiration I am going to have to read this many, many times to truly grasp them all I am excited to apply these tools and principles to not only my study of the scriptures, but to all of my reading I highly recommend this for anyone looking to improve their individual scripture study.


    18. This is not passive reading Comes with a DVD that corresponds to and expands on different chapters Even the margins were intentionally widened for note taking Closer to a college seminary class than the typical, expected collection of nice platitudes Easily one of the best LDS books I ve ever read.


    19. What a book This book changed the way I ll think about learning, forever It also helped me the the difference between doctrines, principles and policies That will forever change the way I think about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the restoration of the Gospel, and how God works with us.


    20. Fantastic book and a now favorite It took me some time to read because it has a lot of depth and is not a skimming book It comes with a DVD of commentary and questions Highly recommended book.


    21. Bednar is a born teacher, and I love hearing him build from basic principles up to deeper doctrine In this book, though, he s teaching how to learn And since all learning is individual, and application of what you are taught only occurs if you act on it, this book leaves a lot hanging on your responsibility to be invested in the learning process I read the digital version of the book, so it had embedded videos of Elder Bednar teaching these principles in a QA session, as well as links to resourc [...]


    22. This book has given me new insight into and understanding of doctrine, principle, and application Learning is a lifelong and eternal principle for our lives This book is a wonderful display of the key areas of obtaining knowledge, understanding, and intelligence With the questions and summaries at the end of each chapter, the supplemental readings, and video clips, I feel like I just completed a classroom course of study I enjoyed it


    23. I have been feeling recently that I really need to focus on studying my scriptures rather than just reading This book certainly helped with that I was glad I was reading it during the summer, because there were days that I would spend an hour or going through some of the things he said in the book It reminded me why I enjoy studying and helped further my desire to get back to it It was a great book.


    24. I really enjoyed reading this book I wrote down many thoughts and questions as I was going through it It s one I will need to ponder over and read thorough multiple times to even begin to understand However, what I did glean has already affected the way I read and study the scriptures and how I plan to teach in the future I liked that there were video segments along with the book and especially got much out of the interview with Elder Sister Bednar.


    25. Excellent, instructional book by Elder Bednar Highly recommend jotting down notes while reading Elder Bednar helps us better understand how to improve our scripture study and application not through check lists but through a changed mindset of how to approach studying Highly recommend this for anyone who feels like their personal scripture study is lacking in anyway.


    26. i read this book to fulfil the goal to read a book by a speaker at a conference you attended this book teaches you how to find answers to your questions by looking for the doctrine or princle if properly understood would help you with whatever problem it sounds so simple in theroy, but is measurable difficult in reality still i enjoyed the book, and would recommend it.


    27. Not very inspiringToo mater of fact orthodox It doesn t address the underlying issues Like, truth is not simply because I say so If Satan was real humanity could not survive the onslaught and our real purpose is not to give God purpose but to be in partnership plumbing the depth and breadth of mortality.


    28. Free on the Bookshelf app so the additional talks or ensign articles which are included don t bother me Wonderful collection of inspiring additional reading and I don t know if I would likely have come across them on my own Certainly well worth reading.


    29. I really liked the first and last chapters, but the additional readings were kind of slow going for me I did have a lot of eye opening thoughts as I read, though so ultimately a worthwhile read.


    30. Great adviseElder Bednar gives the youth of this day great counsel we all need to follow if we are to get answers to our prayers.
