How We Learn
- The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens
- By: Benedict Carey
- Narrated by: Steve Kramer
- Length: 7 hrs and 20 mins
From an early age, it is drilled into our heads: Restlessness, distraction, and ignorance are the enemies of success. We’re told that learning is all self-discipline, that we must confine ourselves to designated study areas, turn off the music, and maintain a strict ritual if we want to ace that test, memorize that presentation, or nail that piano recital. But what if almost everything we were told about learning is wrong?
Mostly how we "remember", not how we "learn"

Very well researched and non obvious "rules"
As a learning professional, some of these points were familiar, but others ran contrary to reason and normal prejudices. Benedict shines a light on the things we should be doing in our training programs.
