<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!

<h2><u>If you want to read at the speed of light, comprehend with ease and develop a memory like an elephant then keep reading. </u> </h2><br />Most of us became acquainted with traditional reading back in elementary school. And most of us are still using the same methods and techniques. What if I told you that there is a <b> totally different way of reading</b>? A method which allows you <b> to read much faster and comprehend more at the same time</b>. A method which uses the <b> artistic (right) side of your brain</b> and hence is way more <b> intuitive, creative, entertaining and fun</b> to use. If this sounds appealing to you, then keep reading.<br /><h2> <b> Double your reading speed by reaching the end of this book</h2> </b><br />Capture concepts instead of just words. We won’t give you some kind of magic pill enabling you to speed up you reading skills. But we will introduce you to a life-changing reading concept enabling you to process information in an intuitive, effective and fun way.<br /><h2> <b> Improve comprehension while reading faster</h2> </b><br />Most speed reading methods allow you to skim through a text but not really helping you to comprehend what you’ve just read. The carousel method makes use of visualization and the right brain’s capability for holistic thinking. This allows you to naturally comprehend and memorize what you’ve read.<br /><h2> <b> Works even during long reading sessions</h2> </b><br />The carousel method makes full use of the right brain hemisphere (something which is totally neglected with many other speed reading techniques). Hence the brain’s full capacity is engaged during reading which results in significantly higher reading-endurance.<br /><h2> <b> Sustainable results with the easy-to-use carousel method</h2> </b><br />Although utilizing sophisticated findings from neuroscience the method itself is broken down into an easy and actionable step-by-step process.<br /><br />Because theory without practice is worthless, we incorporated some reading exercises where you can put the method to the test and measure your reading speed. <br />This book will finally give you the tools and step-by-step advices you need to sustainably speed up your reading speed and increase your comprehension.<br /><u> <h2>So, don’t hesitate, scroll up and click the Add to Cart button. </u> </h2><br />
