From the Author
I would like to reach people who may not have done well in school. Many of those people are now in dead-end jobs. There is no reason to put up with that condition. By learning how the brain learns, anyone can succeed.
About the Author
Born in the U.K. and raised near Montreal, Brian Walsh was a part-time journalist and broadcaster before joining a major international company. For much of his 30-year career he was involved in human resources, specifically training. While living in the arctic, Brian studied anthropology and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), which prepared him for working with other cultures. He was then transferred to China where he served as his companys GM.
After his return to Canada, he elected early retirement to further his earlier interest in NLP and hypnotherapy. He returned to formal study, and within four years had achieved his Ph.D. His dissertation, which focused on accelerated learning techniques, inspired his passion and his book, "Unleashing Your Brilliance". Dr. Walsh regularly conducts workshops on accelerated learning. He is a master practitioner of NLP, an acupuncture detoxification specialist, an EFT practitioner, and a clinical hypnotherapist.

Interesting book overall, not very exciting though.
Drake Eastburn author of "What Is Hypnosis"
The book was a pleasure to go through! Not academic and heavy and boring, but a fun, informative read. Filled with great quotes, illustrations, internet links, practical information--heavy-duty reality--the structure itself is an example of facilitated learning.
In a sense, the book is a portal: one opening up a host of resources for the mind. Walsh points the reader to all kinds of ways for producing change. We learn how to break negative patterns and how to experience more productive and satisfying lives. He shows us how to best learn--and teach--a second language. He writes about brainstorming, about effectively influencing others, about real listening. We learn how we learn: what works and what doesn't.
It's a handbook for the human brain. I learned a lot by reading it. And I'm learning a lot by checking out some of the other sources referred to. If "unleashing your brilliance" is one of your goals, here's definitely a book to read.
Dr. Walsh explains, in simple, easy to apply terms, how the brain works, its levels of comprehension, and how to capture these levels to enrich learning and stimulate creativity. One awareness I gained, which I will use from now on as a corporate trainer, is how to integrate creative activities to augment adult learning. Unfortunately, my experience with adults show that most adults have forgotten how to play. Dr. Walsh validates how important it is to include creative exercises for adult learners regardless of the initial resistance.
Walsh further illustrates in his seminal book, how to empower each learner's thinking. He uses, for example, online activities and crossword puzzles to reinforce immediate prior learning as imprint tools. Additionally, Dr. Walsh superbly utilizes scientific data to support each learning tenant and offers suggestions for clairty and application.
His chapter on Accelerated Learning is crucial for any teacher or trainer. He takes a new "buzz" word and explains its usefulness in plain language. The chapter on Many Intelligences offers detailed explaination and affirms that this understanding must be clear for any type or style for effective learning.
Learning can be, and should be, dynamic. Dr. Walsh teaches how to accelerate intelligence, how to enrich discovery, and the simple techniques and learning strategies to catapult potential. We can all be smarter than we are, according to Dr. Walsh. The insights found within this excellent book aides the understanding of complex topics, such as Emotional Intelligence (EI), stress, mind-body unity, Neuro_Linguistic Programming (NLP), and even photoreading and links it to academic success. Buy this book, its value and usage is vital to anyone who wants to positively influence learning.
