"The way you've been taught to learn isn't nearly good enough for the world we live in today. For centuries, schools emphasized rote memorization: You were supposed to study facts and figures, dates and details, and burn them into your consciousness. But this short-sighted approach doesn't allow for a deeper level of understanding. In Learn Better, writer Ulrich Boser demonstrates that how we learn often matters just as much as what we learn. Brilliantly researched, Learn Better is a guide to the new science of learning, showing how simple techniques like thinking about thinking can foster richer understanding. Boser distills some of the key steps of "learning to learn," from uncovering meaning in an area of expertise to applying what you know. The advice is illuminated with fascinating stories and anecdotes, like how artist Jackson Pollock developed his unique painting style and why an ancient Japanese counting device helps people gain superhuman math skills. Learn Better will revolutionize the way students and society approach education, making the case that learning is a process that everyone can master. With Boser as your guide, you will be able to fully capitalize on your brain's remarkable ability to gain new skills."
