HOW WE LEARN The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens

by | Read by Steve Kramer

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Steve Kramer narrates journalist Benedict Carey's account of new research on the process of learning. Kramer's well-measured pace, agreeable tone, and energy complement Carey's accessible writing style and fascinating findings. These findings often run counter to the prevailing folk wisdom about the best way to ensure maximum absorption and retention of information. For example, varying study setting and allowing oneself some distraction should be embraced rather than avoided. As Carey explores the research and examines his own life as a student, listeners will learn some useful new tidbits to enhance their own learning processes.
