    In "Learn Better," Ulrich Boser has written one of those books that isn't just remarkably well-written and sourced (though it is), but is also a must-read for educators, public policy leaders, administrators, and anyone interested in how we learn. The writing is accessible--entertaining, even--and h...

    Let me be honest: I’m a biased reviewer. In fact, I wrote this book. But GoodReads is giving me the chance to say a few words, and other people whose opinions that I trust have been saying good things about the book. Publisher's Weekly called Learn Better "engaging" and "thought-provoking,?...

    This book is a fun, engaging read for parents, teachers, and students of all ages. I've read a lot of books about education and this ranks at the top of the list because it's easy to read, has interesting messages, and is full of light-hearted stories. Basically it doesn't take itself too seriously ...

Could have easily been summarized in one well/written blog post rather than filling a whole...

    Learning is a skill. You can get better at it. Boser can help you discover how. This is a readable, well-paced, organized introduction to the scientific literature on learning. Occasionally a bit heavy on anecdote (much like Malcolm Gladwell), but overall quite informative. It focuses mostly on the ...

    “Learning Better,” by Ulrich Boser, forces us all to think about learning in new and creative ways. He is humble with his own personal story of learning; sharing how learning was a struggle for him, how he thought of himself as slow. He reminds us how parents who just won’t give up on...
