Learn From The Best
Join the Farnam Street
“The Farnam Street Learning Community is worth every penny and I plan to be a member forever."
Get smarter, make faster progress, and avoid common mistakes.
There are lots of ways you can cut years off the learning curve and put yourself in a position to succeed.
One way is through reading — and Farnam Street is devoted to helping you through the process of self-education.
But there’s another important, sometimes underestimated approach: shortening the path to wisdom by connecting to other like-minded people.
You must learn from those who have already completed the mazes you’re interested in running. If you don’t, you’re wasting a lot of time and effort.
We’ve made that journey easier for you with the Farnam Street Learning Community.
“The Learning Community repeatedly invites me to expand how I see and think. The level of IQ and EQ members offer is unprecedented and has me visiting daily.”

Members of the Learning Community get perks that aren’t available anywhere else. This private trove is brimming with valuable resources to help you make better decisions and take advantage of opportunities where others can’t.
Here’s a small taste of what you’ll get.
Transcripts of our Knowledge Project interviews
Many say the transcripts alone are worth the cost of membership. Our members love printing them off for reference and note-taking.
Direct access to amazing people
You’ll find private networking opportunities with authors, executives, and entrepreneurs. Join any of a number of active threads dedicated to accelerate your personal growth and development — get feedback, generate winning ideas, solve problems, and connect with other like-minded individuals all over the globe.
The Farnam Street Knowledge Library
This is a vast and ever expanding collection of original and curated resources to help you go deep on whatever it is you’re learning now. We are regularly adding content to the library and you’ll have access to everything, past and future.
Exclusive AMAs (Ask Me Anything)
Get your burning questions answered by top authors, coaches, entrepreneurs, investors and others who are making big splashes in their fields. Past guests include James Clear, Michele Gelfand, Nir Eyal, Ryan Holiday, Josh Kaufman and more.
Virtual Reading Group
Several times a year, all community members are invited to participate in guided read-alongs of books we’ve selected. The reading group is one of the Learning Community’s most popular features, and our members insist it’s one of the very best ways to glean insights from a book they would have otherwise missed.
[Farnam Street] does a really remarkable job of looking at culture, history, and interesting books … I check this almost every day.
Looking for More?
How about an extra bonus?
Bonus #1 (Free Online Courses)
When you join the Learning Community now, you also get free access to three of our most popular courses, The Art of Reading, Productivity that Gets Results, and The Art of Focus. Thousands of students have used these courses to read more deeply, retain what they read and develop super focus to get more done in a day than they used to in a week. (Not hyperbole.) We discontinued selling them on the site last year, so the only way to get access is by being a member of the Learning Community. Combined, they retailed for over $500 (3x the cost of a year membership in the LC), so this is a perfect example of a “no-brainer.” ;)
Bonus #2 (Private Re:Think Sessions)
Transcripts of our fireside chats with Mike Lombardi and Annie Duke from our recent Re:Think Workshops. Participants paid $2000+ to be in the room, but as a new member of the Learning Community, it’s like you slipped in the back door to hear all the wisdom Mike and Annie shared with us. These transcripts are not available for purchase anywhere else on the site. The only way to get access is to take a time machine to the live workshop or by being a member of the Learning Community.
Bonus #3 (Early Access)
As a member of the Learning Community, you’ll enjoy early and exclusive access to FS products, events, and breaking news before anyone else.
What real members are saying
"I just renewed my Farnam Street Learning Community membership. Best investment (and not a big one.) Highly recommend!"
“We’re lucky to live in a world with so much good content and information. But there’s so much available that everyone needs a trusted filter, curator, and arbiter to distill and contextualize the most relevant pieces of learning into something they can trust. That’s what the Learning Community does for me.”
Partner at the Collaborative Fund
“Shane’s community is my first stop each morning and my last one each night. I gain knowledge in every area, but most importantly I gain wisdom. I have been a member for years and know it can benefit everyone.”
Former GM of the Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots coach
"The learning community helps me digest and apply the knowledge gained from Farnam Street content. The virtual reading groups, especially, help me get real insights from books I may have enjoyed reading, but quickly forgotten."
"Through active participation in this community, I keep my knowledge and skills at a top level."
"The FS Knowledge Library is simply outstanding. Maybe the best resource for improving reasoning and decision making in the world."
