Learning How to Learn

By Barbara Oakley, Terrence Sejnowski, Alistair Mc Conville, Dr. Barbara Oakley , Dr. Terrence Sejnowski

Most kids go through their entire student career without ever having read a book on how to learn effectively. This guide for kids and teens, from the bestselling author of A Mind for Numbers, meets that fundamental need.


Drs. Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski's popular online course, "Learning How to Learn," has enrolled more than 1.8 million students from more than 200 countries. The course was based on Dr. Oakley's bestselling book, A Mind for Numbers. Readers and students have often commented that the learning techniques presented in the book and course are simple enough for children to understand. Indeed, Drs. Oakley and Sejnowski explain the science of learning in an engaging and practical way that often relies on illustrations and metaphors.

     In this much needed follow-up to A Mind for Numbers, the authors teach kids and teens how to learn effectively at a time when they most need these fundamental skills. Learning How to Learn teaches them about the importance of both focused concentration and letting their minds wander at times, how the brain makes connections between different pieces of information, the value of metaphors in developing understanding, why procrastination is the enemy of problem solving, and much more. Filled with illustrations, application questions, and exercises, this book makes learning engaging and accessible.
