Henry Paulson (Former US Secretary of the Treasury & CEO, Goldman Sachs)

Paulson discusses how there is no single best way of learning and that everyone needs to find the approach to learning that works for them. He talks about how he mainly learns by doing and by listening and watching experts, whether he is out birding with his wife or saltwater fly fishing with a guide, or working on his next book. Paulson explains how writing and having to explain something to others takes learning to another whole level even if you think you know the subject inside and out.
