A lot of what we think we know about learning is wrong, according to 10 years of research carried out by a team of 11 cognitive psychologists. Written by a professional storyteller, this audiobook flows with melodic sentences that are made even more appealing to hear by narrator Qarie Marshall. His effortless-sounding articulation and broad phrasing palette make this a production that listeners can warm up to while they're absorbing what science tells us about optimal learning. Among the findings is that retention is higher when repetition is deliberate and spaced, and when new information is offered in a variety of contexts and interspersed among lessons on disparate topics. More than aphoristic tips, these are powerful strategies, sometimes counterintuitive, that are already revolutionizing training and education in a variety of realms. T.W.
