I honestly believe this book has nothing to offer you :( it doesn't touch the hard parts, just assumes you're super assertive.

Now Abrashoff offers this fascinating tale of top-down change for anyone trying to navigate today's uncertain business seas. When Captain Abrashoff took over as commander of the Benfold, a ship armed with every cutting-edge system available, it was like a business that had all the latest technology but only some of the productivity.

To most of us, learning something 'the hard way' implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head and will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement.

Would you listen to Make It Stick again? Why?

I wouldn't listen to it again. Although the knowledge was extremely useful and it influenced the way I learn - I have a feeling that this amount of knowledge fits an article or a talk better, than a book.

Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

Very easy to follow and understand. Supported well with multiple examples.

What about Qarie Marshall’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed it.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Quizing yourself for sure. Spacing, interleaving and mixing as well.

Any additional comments?

Too many examples, to much repetition. I'd love to have a more dense version read.
