More About the Author
An examination of the talents that people have and what makes them do what they do. The author suggests that everyone has the power to change the way they perceive themselves and others, and revolutionize the way they work, communicate and love, by investigating the learning triggers derived from six basic learning patterns. These patterns are all based on how we assimilate auditory, visual, and kinaesthetic information.

I appreciate her brevity, also. It's a simple theory, though an exceptional one. But Markova doesn't embellish her ideas, slapping wordy technical terms on everything. These concepts speak for themselves. She gives further insight where it's needed, but mostly the reader is allowed to make his/her own interpretations. This is not heavy reading, (easily digestible for a college freshman such as myself!) but enlightening nonetheless.
Also by Dawna Markova and Anne Powell, "How Your Child Is Smart" is helpful for parents, or anyone who wants to give their children the gift of a self-validating start in life. This could make a world of difference in a child's experience of school, not to mention life in general. A must for any teacher.
Currently a senior affiliate of the Organizational Learning Center at MIT, she has established learning communities around the country and founded the Institute of Human Ecology.
Her previous books include How Your Child is Smart, No Enemies Within, and, with her husband and business partner, Andy Bryner, An Unused Intelligence.
She is one of the co-editors of Random Acts of Kindness and Kids' Random Acts of Kindness."
"Dr. Markova teaches that each of us uses one of six learning patterns, all based on the way we process auditory, visual, and kinesthetic information.
If your conscious mind is most stimulated by movement, for instance, it will be hard for you to learn while sitting still.
If, on the other hand, movement stimulates your unconscious mind, you may find competitive sports frustrating.
In The Open Mind, Dr. Markova guides you through detailed descriptions of each thinking pattern and teaches how to recognize them in yourself and other."
"Very helpful...powerful exercises.
I RECOMMEND IT TO PROFESSIONALS AND NON-PROFESSIONAL ALIKE."
