If you happen to fall into the same
category as I, you have very likely been conditioned to believe that you
were learning when you were, in fact, merely gathering information.
Learning is when we consciously entertain an idea, let ourselves get
emotionally involved in that idea, step out and act on the idea, and the
action changes a result in our life. It is the feedback that we consciously
receive from the change in results that is the learning experience.
This book that you hold in your hands could, very easily, turn into a
treasure. I say could because you must choose to use it, study it and apply
it. No amount of reading or memorizing will make you successful in life; it
is the understanding and application of wise thoughts that count.
This book is truly about learning. Studying and applying the information
will be a very pleasurable learning experience. The information it contains
is meant for anyone who has suffered anxiety from studying for an exam or
test, questioned his or her intelligence, felt out of tune with mainstream
education, or simply wanted to learn more efficiently. In essence, this
book is for everyone! It explains how the brain actually learns, and
what you can do to take advantage of your natural learning processes.
For people fully engaged in
life, whatever their age or profession, learning plays a central role, and it
only makes sense that they would want to learn in the most effective way.
Traditionally, school has not taught us how to learn; it’s almost paradoxical!
Building on his knowledge of hypnotherapy, the unity of mind and body, and the
role of emotions, Brian Walsh has captured the essence of brain-compatible
learning. In easy-to-understand language, he clearly explains how our
conditioning or paradigms shape habits that help or hinder learning. You need
only read the introduction to appreciate the quality and value of what you’ll
Offering great benefits for university and corporate learners, this book will
also help teachers and trainers who will discover a host of effective
facilitation techniques. Although Dr. Walsh mildly admonishes outdated school
methods, he has high praise for those teachers who go out of their way to
accommodate the assortment of learning styles found in any classroom. In an
unusual approach, each chapter ends with an interesting opportunity for you to
further stimulate your brain and reinforce your absorption of the chapter’s
I highly recommend you use this book as a guide to making the most of your
natural talent for learning in such a clear, innovative, and entertaining way.
