<b>The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn"</b><br /><br />Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, <i>A Mind for Numbers</i> offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life.<br />  <br /> In <i>A Mind for Numbers</i>, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively—secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they’d known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there’s only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions—you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think!<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

<h2>Understand, avoid, and defeat the <u>subconscious causes of your irrational and self-defeating behaviors</u>. <i>It’s only human nature.</i></h2><br />A psychological trigger is something that causes us to act out of urgency - not correctness or even happiness. It’s a switch that is flipped outside of our consciousness. <b>This is fertile ground for some of the worst decisions of our lives.</b> <br /><br /><h2>Seize control and of your impulses and make better decisions.</h2><br /><b><u>Psychological Triggers</u></b> is an introduction to yourself - your impulses, your desires, and everything in your subconscious that drives you to action. It answers the question, “Why did I just make a terrible choice when I know I shouldn’t have?” <br /><br />We are all slaves to our triggers, and this book seeks to identify them to better battle them. <b>We might think we are making our decisions independently and out of free will, but you’ll discover that to be far from reality.</b><br /><br /><h2>Master your psychology, master your life.</h2><br /><i>Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a bestselling author.</i> He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path towards success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.<br /><br /><H2>Think clearly and triumph over your human nature.</h2><br />•The triggering effects of social pressure and conformity.<br />•<b>How everyday emotions are behind some of the most powerful triggers.</b><br />•Natural, biological, evolutionary human drives - can you regulate them?<br />•<b>Simple thinking traps we all fall victim to.</b><br />•The notion of free will and whether it truly exists.<br /><br /><H2>Beat psychological triggers, reclaim your free will, and irrationality.</h2><br />Is purely rational thinking, devoid of emotion and human drives, a reality? Probably not. But you can certainly live free from your worst impulses and irrational hunches, which are what psychological triggers create more often than not. See yourself thrive from consistently making beneficial decisions and defeating your primal psychology. <br /><br /><h2> Control your destiny by clicking the BUY NOW BUTTON at the top right of this page.</h2><br />

The ultimate rapid language-learning guide! For those who’ve despaired of ever learning a foreign language, here, finally, is a book that will make the words stick.<b> </b>At thirty years old, Gabriel Wyner speaks <i>six </i>languages fluently.  He didn’t learn them in school -- who does? -- rather, he learned them in the past few years, working on his own and practicing on the subway, using simple techniques and free online resources. In <i>Fluent Forever</i> Wyner reveals what he’s discovered.  <br /><b> </b><br />The greatest challenge to learning a foreign language is the challenge of memory; there are just too many words and too many rules. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, and as a result, fluency can seem out of reach. <i>Fluent Forever</i> tackles this challenge head-on. With empathy for the language-challenged and abundant humor, Wyner deconstructs the learning process, revealing how to build a foreign language in your mind from the ground up. <br /> <br />Starting with pronunciation, you’ll learn how to rewire your ears and turn foreign sounds into <i>familiar</i> sounds. You'll retrain your tongue to produce those sounds accurately, using tricks from opera singers and actors. Next, you'll begin to tackle words, and connect sounds and spellings to imagery, rather than translations, which will enable you to <i>think</i> in a foreign language<i>.  </i>And with the help of sophisticated spaced-repetition techniques, you'll be able to memorize hundreds of words a month in <i>minutes</i> every day. Soon, you'll gain the ability to learn grammar and more difficult abstract words--<i>without </i>the tedious drills and exercises of language classes and grammar books. <br /> <br />This is brain hacking at its most exciting, taking what we know about neuroscience and linguistics and using it to create the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn a foreign language in the spare minutes of your day.
