<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>If you are an entrepreneur who is launching a business book this may be the most important book you ever read, here's why....</h2><br /><b>WARNING:</b> But first a warning, this book is not for everyone. This isn't one of those "game the system books" to become a Bestseller on Amazon. There are plenty of those available (ie: become a Bestseller by making a minimum amount of sales in a small niche category).<br /><br />When I first started, I used those gimmicks myself. <br /><br />The problem is, when you do that, you end up with what I call <b>The Bestseller Hangover</b>. You've sold a handful of books, and have the title Bestseller, but nothing else. The system in this book requires more work, but leaves you with lots of sales, credibility and a real platform to grow your business. With that said, let’s jump right in…<br /><br /><b><i>The Snowball Book Launch</i> is about taking the long game approach to your book launch. </b><br /><br />This causes you to focus on all of the items that sell books (both pre-launch and post-launch). The idea is to divide your launch into thirds.<br /><br /> The <b>first third</b> focuses on building everything that will make your life so much easier down the road: for example, things like author lists, keywords, your lead magnet, and your overall message (not just the message of your book, but of you and your business or future business). <br /><br />The <b>second third</b> focuses on the Pre-Order period, and maximizing sales before your book releases. You absolutely must take advantage of this crucial tool Amazon. Far too few authors really know how to use this or maximize it!<br /><br />The <b>last third</b> is the book release and what to do after it. You don’t want 50 sales and a Bestseller Banner. You want 1000s of sales, a stream of clients and a platform.<br /><br />It is called a "Snowball Book Launch", because you are constantly building momentum (and sales) toward your launch date and beyond. It is actually an easier, less-stressful launch. <br /><br />Not only that, this book teaches: <br /><ul><br /> <li>4 things you can do right now, regardless of what stage you are in, to dramatically increase the success of your book launch</li><br /> <li>You or your book are your <b>most important assets</b>, right? WRONG!! (find out what is in Chp 3)</li><br /> <li>How to eliminate "Book Begging" on social media, and connect with people who will buy</li><br /> <li>Where to <b>find thousands of readers</b> (outside of Amazon)</li><br /> <li>6 ways to make your book description <b>virtually guarantee a sale</b></li><br /> <li>Why <b>less advertising works</b> (and is easier)</li> <br /> <li>One type of launch your should never do if you want <b>long term credibility</b> and a successful business (yet most authors are doing this!)</li><br /> <li>What to do if someone writes a bad review, and why you want that to happen! WHAT?!?!</li> <br /> <li>Say <b>goodbye to author obscurity</b> and build a real brand for yourself</li> <br /></ul><b>Yes, that's a lot of great info, but it gets better because you're also getting private access to my:</b><br /><br /> FREE eBook <b><i>Viral Book Marketing</i></b> (not available in stores), which shows you:<br /><ul><br /> <li>3 ways to <b>multiply your book buyers</b> in short timeframes</li><br /> <li>Think you need an audience before you launch your book? THINK AGAIN!</li><br /> <li>How to add the <b>"Fear of Missing Out"</b> to your marketing</li><br /> <li>The 3 incentives that will <b>get people to share</b> your book</li> <br /></ul>Without a doubt, when you focus on sales, not Bestseller, you will not only sell more books, but Bestseller status will come easily as a byproduct. When you add <b><i>Viral Book Marketing</i></b> to the equation, you have an <b>unfair advantage</b> when launching your book!<br /><br /><h2><b>Download <i>The Snowball Book Launch</i></b> now for this temporary low price!</h2><br /><br />
