In Power Up Your Mind, Bill Lucas attempts to teach readers how to learn. To accomplish this goal, he sets out to provide a blueprint to the workings of the human brain through easy-to-grasp descriptions and illustrations designed to explain how the brain ingests and processes information. What’s lacking is a comprehensive review of the basic theories of learning that experts have deduced from the biological structures and mental functions that Lukas describes. Nevertheless, getAbstract recommends this book for its theoretical insights and practical advice about learning and memory.
In this summary, you will learn
- The basic structures and functions of the human brain;
- How these structures influence the way that people learn, and
- How to improve your own ability to learn.
