Exploring the psychology of human learning, Markova (senior affiliate, the Organizational Learning Ctr., MIT) theorizes that all people distill auditory, visual, and kinesthetic stimuli into one of six basic patterns of learning. She came to this conclusion through her broad-based, firsthand experience as a teacher, being especially observant of the habits exhibited by children who would not fit into the standard norms. This book is far more than a narrative of her work and research, however; it is also a self-help work that "teaches you to use the instrument of your mind to learn more easily and communicate more effectively." Each proposed learning pattern is examined in detail, with readers being instructed on how to recognize their pattern and to integrate this recognition into daily living and learning. This interesting and well-written book deserves a place as well in general psychology collections in libraries of all types.

From the Back Cover
Why do some of us master languages easily while others give up in frustration? Why are some of us perfectly organized and others scatter papers everywhere? Why do some people prefer written communication while others would rather talk? In The Open Mind, you will discover that the answers to these and many other "personality" riddles lie in the particular way your mind works. Understanding your unique pattern and the ones of the people you know will revolutionize the way you communicate, work, and love. Dr. Markova teaches that each of us uses one of six learning patterns, all based on the way we process auditory, visual, and kinesthetic information. If your conscious mind is most stimulated by movement, for instance, it will be hard for you to learn while sitting still. If, on the other hand, movement stimulates your unconscious mind, you may find competitive sports frustrating. In The Open Mind, Dr. Markova guides you through detailed descriptions of each thinking pattern and teaches how to recognize them in yourself and others.

Also by Dawna Markova and Anne Powell, "How Your Child Is Smart" is helpful for parents, or anyone who wants to give their children the gift of a self-validating start in life. This could make a world of difference in a child's experience of school, not to mention life in general. A must for any teacher.
It takes a look at patterns of understanding that we've all seen in life, but maybe never really understood.
