Benedict Carey sifts through decades of research and landmark studies to uncover the truth about how the brain absorbs and retains information. What he discovers is that, from the moment we are born, we are all learning quickly, efficiently, and automatically; but in our zeal to systematize the process we have ignored valuable, naturally enjoyable learning tools like forgetting, sleeping, and daydreaming. Carey's search for answers yields a wealth of strategies.

As a professor, I have a professional interest in learning theory, but this is an engaging and substantial work that is presented in the new "popular academic" style, if that is even a term. Many people are now buttressing their findings with examples and (others') research, and Carey does so well here. Creative and effective examination of many aspects of learning.
