About this item

For centuries, learning emphasized memorizing information: You were supposed to study facts, dates, and details, and burn them into your consciousness. But this approach to learning is outdated and contrary to how our brains really work. In Learn Better, writer and education researcher Ulrich Boser maps out the new science of learning, demonstrating how we can gain expertise in dramatically better ways.

In this entertaining and engrossing book, Boser argues that learning is a skill, showing how techniques like self-questioning and thinking about thinking can create much deeper levels of understanding. Among the important findings and practical tips, Boser tells fascinating stories, like how Jackson Pollock came to his revolutionary drip painting method--and why an ancient counting device helps people gain superhuman math skills.

This powerful book will revolutionize the way that you acquire mastery, with far-reaching implications for both you and society. But perhaps most importantly, you will be able to fully capitalize on your mind's remarkable ability to develop new skills.
