I wasn’t expecting much from this book. I have already read many books about learning methodologies and how learning works in humans. But, I enjoyed these types of books and wanted to give another take on the subject.
During the first part of the book, I thought I had made a mistake starting it. Not only I wasn’t learning anything new, but the book felt slow. Thankfully, the second half of the book is much more enjoyable. Especially chapters 4 (Make learning secondary) and 5 (Teaching to learn) are exciting and inspiring. Nothing surprising but inspiring.
In general, and in the end, there is nothing new for me in the book, but it is a fine read. It is short and to the point, and I think it would make a perfect book as a first read on the subject. If you have not read any other essay on learning, this one could be a good entry point.
