Make It Stick - The Science of Successful Learning

Tales of incidents in the lives of real people illuminate what the latest science tells us about how learning and memory work.

Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, Make It Stick turns conventional wisdom on its head, entertains, and offers practical tips to all who are interested in the challenge of lifelong growth and self-improvement.

– James M. Lang, The Chronicle of Higher Education

“With its credible challenge to conventional wisdom, Make It Stick points the way forward.”
