How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens by Benedict Carey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Interesting, approachable, and best of all, useful. Throwing some cherished ideas about studying, testing, and learning on their heads, this highly-readable book summarizes and puts into context important research on learning. As a long-ago psych major, I found Carey's work both in concert with what I learned and giving me a helpful update. I will recommend that my public library order a copy.
