Most of us are rarely taught how to learn, but professor and author Bill Lucas argues, "in an age when creativity and time are the key commodities, learning how to learn is the key skill, and the brain is the key organ." With this guide to the learning process Lucas hopes to help you examine these key components and unlock your potential to learn faster and work smarter. Jerome Pride gives a solid performance of the audiobook, his powerful voice and steady diction giving grounding to this heady but understandable guide.
Delivers the concepts and innovative practices that every working person, trainer, educator, and teacher needs to develop the most critical of all 21st century skills: learning how to learn.
Bill Lucas is an internationally popular speaker, facilitator, strategist, and consultant and the author and co-author of more than 20 books.
Bill Lucas, a leading international expert on life-long learning, shows that while we have learned more about how the brain works in the last decade than we have ever known, only a fraction of this is grasped and applied by most people. Power Up Your Mind applies this practical knowledge for the first time and shows you how to learn.
Drawing on research from a wide variety of subject areas, from neuroscience to psychology, from motivation theory to accelerated learning, from memory to diet, this book shows how everyone has the capacity to succeed and how most people use only a very small portion of their talents.
To start with I thought this was a little basic, but hang on in there. This is a really comprehensive book on how to improve learning coverring hydration, nutrition, learning styles, environment,learning cycle, intelligences etc etc.
Like all books I like to come away with some key learnings/ideas - this delivers.
