Brain Rules: Twelve Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School
<b>A <i>New York Times</i> and <i>BusinessWeek</i> bestseller.</b><br/>
Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know — like that physical activity boosts your brain power.<br/>
How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget — and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?<br/>
In <i>Brain Rules</i>, Dr John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule — what scientists know for sure about how our brains work — and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives.
