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. She then lists about 10 insights on the subject. But, they were all saying exactly the same thing that practice takes time and is important.
Fortunately, there is a much better book on this subject: "How to Learn Anything Quickly" by Ricki Linksman. This book is everything the other book is not. It is relevant, and effective. It tests your learning style along two effective axes: Learning Style (Visual, Audio, Kinesthetic, and Tactile), and Brain Dominance (Left-brain, Right-brain). Thus, the author's framework includes a very manageable eight different specific learning style. The author devotes an entire chapter on each of these styles. By reading the one relevant to you [i.e. Visual Left-Brain], you will learn a lot about how to better absorb information, acquire knowledge and expertise in any field, get ready for a test. The author gets into practical details such as what style of note-taking will work best for you, or what kind of writing or project outline will help you out. In other words, this book really teaches you how to learn; unlike "Learn More Now."
If you want to study this subject further, I recommend all the excellent books by Howard Gardner, and Tony Buzan. Gardner is the developer of the Multiple Intelligence Theory. Buzan is the inventor of the Mind Mapping technique, a really amazing and fun learning tool. Michael Gelb has also written excellent books on this subject, including "How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci."
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).
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.
