Product description

Review

"This book is a revelation. I feel as if I've owned a brain for fifty-four years and only now discovered the operating manual. For two centuries, psychologists and neurologists have been quietly piecing together the mysteries of mind and memory as they relate to learning and knowing. Benedict Carey serves up their most fascinating, surprising, and valuable discoveries with clarity, wit, and heart. I wish I'd read this when I was seventeen."--Mary Roach, bestselling author of Stiff and Gulp

"How We Learn makes for a welcome rejoinder to the faddish notion that learning is all about the hours put in. Learners, [Benedict] Carey reminds us, are not automatons."--The New York Times Book Review

"The insights of How We Learn apply to far more than just academic situations. Anyone looking to learn a musical instrument would benefit from understanding what frequency and type of practice is most effective. Even readers with little practical use for Carey's information will likely find much of it fascinating, such as how intuition can be a teachable skill, or that giving practice exams at the very beginning of a semester improves grades. How We Learn is a valuable, entertaining tool for educators, students and parents."--Shelf Awareness

"How We Learn is more than a new approach to learning; it is a guide to making the most out of life. Who wouldn't be interested in that?"--Scientific American

"Whether you struggle to remember a client's name, aspire to learn a new language, or are a student battling to prepare for the next test, this book is a must. I know of no other source that pulls together so much of what we know about the science of memory and couples it with practical, practicable advice."--Daniel T. Willingham, professor of psychology at the University of Virginia and author of Raising Readers in an Age of Distraction

"How We Learn is as fun to read as it is important, and as much about how to live as it is about how to learn. Benedict Carey's skills as a writer, plus his willingness to mine his own history as a student, give the book a wonderful narrative quality that makes it all the more accessible--and all the more effective as a tutorial."--Robert A. Bjork, Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles

"Fact #1: Your brain is a powerful and eccentric machine, capable of performing astonishing feats of memory and skill. Fact #2: Benedict Carey has written a book that will inspire and equip you to use your brain in a more effective way. Fact #3: You should use your brain--right now--to buy this book for yourself and for anyone who wants to learn faster and better."--Daniel Coyle, bestselling author of The Talent Code

From the Hardcover edition.
