Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - like the need for physical activity to get your brain working its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new knowledge? Is it true that men and women have different brains? In the New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule - what scientists know for sure about how our brains work - and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives. Medina’s fascinating stories and infectious sense of humor breathe life into brain science. You’ll learn why Michael Jordan was no good at baseball. You’ll peer over a surgeon’s shoulder as he proves that most of us have a Jennifer Aniston neuron. You’ll meet a boy who has an amazing memory for music but can’t tie his own shoes. You will discover how: Every brain is wired differently. Exercise improves cognition. We are designed to never stop learning and exploring. Memories are volatile. Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn. Vision trumps all of the other senses. Stress changes the way we learn. In the end, you’ll understand how your brain really works - and how to get the most out of it.

Very good and useful book

This is an evidence based, information packed, but reader friendly book, that at the end of your reading, you will have a much improved sense of how our brains generally function, and what kind of approaches we should adopt to enhance positively our learning experience and to get better results. It has much profound implications as to how schools and businesses are supposed to set up and function to achieve the intended outcome for students and employees alike. The only draw back I find with this audiobook is that personally, I find the reading pace a bit too fast and it is sustained at such pace throughout the entire book. In order to absorb, digest and reflect on the content better, I would suggest reader to pause as often as he or she requires before continuing.
