5.0 out of 5 stars Simplicity from complexity, 22 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Little Book of Big Stuff about the Brain:: The True Story of Your Amazing Brain (Independent Thinking Series) (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book that takes an extremely complex subject making it accessible and entertaining without over-simplification - a delicate balance but one the author has achieved.
Most importantly of all, Andrew Curran is able to offer more than science: in addition to sharing his wonder at what nature has evolved he offers an understanding of the effects of nuture (good and otherwise) and how this programming can be overwritten where it does not serve us.
As we learn we are laying down templates in the brain. This learning, its quality and consequences for our personal experience, is driven by our emotional or 'limbic' brain. Curran has a vitally important message for teachers, managers and leaders in all walks of life about how we learn and how to create the best possible conditions for learning. This book builds a fascinating bridge between neuroscience and human experience.
