Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is superficial and is more about enumerating countless dimensions vaguely associated with training than learning itself. The author mentions six different dimensions related to learning. Only one of them is meaningful: Learning Style [Visual, Audio, Kinesthetic]. The five others are trivial. However, by throwing so many dimensions at you that are not so relevant, she dilutes her message immensely. These six different dimensions actually result in 432 possible styles of learning. This is just absurd, and renders her whole learning framework unusable. She gets through this maze by only touching the surface of each dimension, and never addressing a specific learning type across more than one dimension at a time. For instance, using her language how would a Goal-oriented, Visual, Global, Space-Oriented, Small Group, Think to Talk learning style person best learn. How would such a specific learner best take notes, prepare for a test, learn a new discipline. You will never know because this is one of the 432 learning types you can come up with. She will just share vague recommendations about how a Visual learner learns, or a Goal-oriented learner learns. So, you get these disconnected and superficial pieces of information. And, it is up to you to connect the dots. Good luck.
The author gets wrong the one single relevant learning dimension she mentions. She subdivides Learning Style along three sensory subgroups, when it should be four. Kinesthetic and Tactile are two different subgroups. Also, the test she gives in the book is way too short, and vague to give an accurate assessment of your own Learning Style.
Occasionally, her writing style is really boring. In one chapter, she emphasizes the learning power of practicing.

I had to read this book for a class at American Military University. I do not have time to write in detail like Gaetan Lion did but I completely agree with him. This book is so obvious that I'm surprised that anyone gets anything out of it. Insightful? Not in the least bit. No offence to the writer, she seems like a nice person, but other than assigning her titles to things I already knew I got nothing from the book. I recommended to the college that they remove this book from their curriculum. If you are attending APUS and must read it all I can say is at least it's a quick easy read and if you agree with my review to please let the college know in the end of course survey.

I am currently reading this book because it is required reading in a required class at AMU. I have found that it lacks any real content. Someone looking for assistance learning would be better served elsewhere. If you are one of those sorry saps forced to read this at AMU then know that I am sorry and I know your pain.

I was assigned this book for a class. Unlike many of the other reviews, I had no trouble with her English which was just fine. Her topics in each chapter were very interesting.

As I was reading, I did discover some frustrating sections. Her explanation of a visual learner does not describe me, yet there is no question that I am a strong visual learner. Many times when taking similar surveys that she has in her book, I disagree with the results because they seem to put people into molds. At times, this seems to be the same in Conner's book.

I have to say that I learned something from every chapter. I might not have agreed with everything she wrote, but I honestly feel that is a book that is worth reading.

This book is terrible. The author's writing style is mediocre at best and some of her advice is absolutely absurd. It was an absolute waste of my time. Deep down, we all know how we learn, it's instinctive. This book will just give you fancy names for your style of learning. The "advice" the author gives out is vapid and uneducated. My favorite was that I should take acting classes and stop being antisocial so that I could fit into social norms. The author is clearly an extrovert who is perpetuating the idea that there is something wrong with introverts and that introverts need to be fixed.

I was assigned this as my text book for a college course (I %$#@ you not). It is very nearly offensive to read. It is based on fallacious science and written in broken English by a woman who admits to having absolutely no higher educational credentials whatsoever. Which is especially humorous given that she presumes to explain brain chemistry to us, using research which has not been peer reviewed in ways that even the researchers never intended it to be interpreted (I'm sorry, my spleen can't think, and there is no scientific basis for that assertion [and you think I'm kidding about that, but she actually asserts that our organs, joints, and muscles can think in the most literal sense]).

Her methods range from hokey to downright ridiculous, leaving one's intellect offended and impugned by the experience. Anyone who has the misfortune to be assigned this as a text book, you have my deepest sympathy. Anyone who buys this of their own independent will, you have less of it, but still enough to fill the bowels of #$%&. Anyone who buys it and actually thinks it valuable, you have my sincerest scorn. I am at first tempted to feel bad for you, too, but at a certain point you deserve your fate as a punishment for a level of criminal stupidity which rivals even that of the writer (at least she managed to get people to give her money for her stupidity, after all - she gets credit for that).
