The RapidFire Story – by Greg Hague
I had always dreamed of practicing law. So in 2009, at age 60, I decided to take the difficult Arizona bar exam. I graduated law school in 1974 and hadn’t looked at a legal book in 35 years. The exam was just 4 1/2 months away.
Here I was, an “aged” guy competing against young, newly-minted law students fresh off three years of intense study. The exam pass rate is often below 65%. Many said, “Greg, no way.”
Well, I not only passed, I snagged the #1 score in the state! How? I developed a new study technique, a way to learn twice as much in half the time. I named it “L4X.”
After the exam I wanted to share L4X with everyone and maybe become one of those super-cool New York Times bestselling authors. So I asked a New York editor if he thought my story and the L4X system would make a good book. He loved it.
But there was a problem. He said major publishers want at least 160 pages. I could tell the story and explain the system in a fraction of that.
I tried to puff it up, but the more I wrote the less clear my explanation. I learned that brevity begets clarity.
This got me thinking. Most books are structured around a few big ideas like L4X. Why not dig them out and explain them in minutes to help people who don’t have hours to read? That inspiration gave rise to RapidFire Books.
