A useful but irritating read
on 11 June 2011
This book provides a good overview of a complex topic and is a useful tool for those seeking to learn how an understanding of the brain can enhance their teaching.
What ultimately lets it down (and other such books in same series that seem to be influenced by Ian Gilbert) is the embarrassing writing style. The attempt to be chummy with the reader has the opposite effect: to make you cringe at the attempted humour and feel resentful that you are being patronised.
A good book, but not when it is not trying to be 'funny' or your best friend.
