<p>Benny Lewis, who speaks over ten languages—all self-taught—runs the largest language-learning blog in the world, <em>Fluent In 3 Months</em>. Lewis is a full-time "language hacker," someone who devotes all of his time to finding better, faster, and more efficient ways to learn languages. <em>Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World</em> is a new blueprint for fast language learning. Lewis argues that you don't need a great memory or "the language gene" to learn a language quickly, and debunks a number of long-held beliefs, such as adults not being as good of language learners as children.</p>

<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><b>Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease | Book Summary | Knowledge Crave</b></h2><br /><br />Medical science and research are yet to truly understand or even scratch the surface of what causes many of the health issues currently plaguing humans. <br /><br />In the book “<b><i>Medical Medium Liver Rescue</i></b>”, Anthony William seeks to educate the reader on steps to take towards understanding various disorders as well as how to embark on recovering from them. He does this by emphasizing the need for us to take good care of our livers. Many of the health conditions we encounter can be traced to this organ. A sluggish and contaminated liver opens up the way for toxins in it to enter our bloodstream and flow into the rest of our bodies.<br /><br />Anthony takes us through the peacekeeping role the liver plays. Even though we do not pay the liver much attention, the organ is responsible for causing or eliminating health conditions such as diabetes, depression, eczema, psoriasis, adrenal problems, etc. All these are liver-related problems, and we can tackle them by giving the liver what it needs to function correctly.<br /><br /><u><i>This book contains a comprehensive, well detailed summary and key takeaways of the original book by <b> Anthony William.</b> It summarizes the book in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate and imbibe the original work by Anthony.
