I have had many friends tell me about this book. I ordered it and have started reading and find it very interesting. The book came quickly and was as described.

One of my favorite and most often returned to books. Goes beyond one's so-called "learning style" to include the strengths of the sensory modalities beyond the one preferred for conscious understanding. What helps some concentrate, for example, will space out others. Fascinating, very useful, and part of a growing trend which recognizes individual differences as strengths, not as problems to be fixed. Instead of forcing people apart, this kind of understanding can bring people closer together. Highly recommended.

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.

This book takes a deeper look at what makes us glaze over when someone talks to us at length, why we zone out while watching TV or listening to music and what makes our minds drift away while driving. It helps us understand why we just can't get through to some people - despite having explained it 20 times.

It takes a look at patterns of understanding that we've all seen in life, but maybe never really understood.
