Learning How to Learn

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to individuals who are interested in learning how to learn. This book offers a broad overview of different ways to learn and exercises to increase your brain power.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Jack of All Trades?

This is a non-fiction book so there isn't really a memorable moment. The most helpful sections were the memory enhancement techniques and exercises (like visualization) and learning to speed read.

Have you listened to any of The INSTANT-Series’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to a few INSTANT-Series's books. This is comparable to those. All these titles provide a broad overview of an important topic. This one happens to be about different ways to learn and master topics of your choice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is a non-fiction book so there wasn't a moment that "moved" me. I do find the suggestions to auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning very helpful. I'd like to teach these to my students so they can learn how to learn.
