Product description

Review

“A fun, practical book about how to help your kids build the most important skill in life: the skill of learning.”
—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

"Young people are expected to learn, but are rarely taught how. This book does that job beautifully. Based on the latest research, Learning How to Learn conveys ideas and strategies simply and directly, covering all the bases. I wish someone had given me this book when I was in middle or high school. If you have (or know) children this age, do them a favor and give them this book.” 
--Henry L. Roediger III, coauthor of Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning

"The authors' neuroscience-grounded, yet real-life, approach will be of value to learners of any age."
—Adam Gazzaley, MD, PhD, Professor in Neurology, Physiology, and Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco

“In this highly readable and lively book, the authors illustrate how the brain and behavioral dynamics underlie effective learning—and they do so in a way that young learners will find understandable and even entertaining.”
—Robert A. Bjork, Distinguished Research Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles

"Learning How to Learn shows kids and teens that a little knowledge of how their brain works goes a long way in helping them improve their learning and studying success. This unique book is full of fun learning strategies—I highly recommend it!”
—Paula Tallal, PhD, Board of Governors Professor Emeritus of Neuroscience at Rutgers University and cofounder of Scientific Learning Corporation

“I devoured Learning How to Learn in three sittings (I needed time for diffuse thinking, active recall, and sleep). A terrific book!”
—Jeff Sandefer, cofounder of Acton Academy

“This book helps students understand how to learn more effectively. My 10th grade daughter especially enjoys applying the technique of ‘sleeping on it’ to enhance her recall.”
—Todd Troutman, Dean, Science and Mathematics, Mott Community College
