The Introduction got me very excited to delve into the principals discussed. As someone in his mid-thirties who was never able to muster the energy to care about school, learning how to learn is a fascinating, if difficult subject for me. Putting learning through the prism of studying the steps followed in learning to craft a masterpiece was invigorating.
The first chapter went a little deeper into how the brain adapts when learning than I expected. It was interesting, but I was anxious to get into the big ideas touched on in the introduction.
Overall, the writing was direct and simple to follow and, so far, it seems like a book I could get a lot of use out of.
