If you apply her ideas in language classes, as I have, not only will your students stay awake and interested the entire class, they'll also remember far more of what they experienced in class, not simply lectures and explanations, but also dialogue activities, improv exercises, etc., for months and even years later.
Also includes highly useful details on movement and learning, visual versus verbal processing, active versus passive learning, and so much more.
The only suggestion I can make to the publisher is to offer all of Sharon's books on Kindle. As of the date of this review, just two of her other books are available on Kindle. For those of us living at a great distance, Kindle is highly preferable.
I also love that it's written in a very easy-to-understand way. You don't have to be a neuroscientist to understand what she's saying! Can't recommend this enough!
