Think smart people are just born that way? Think again.

Drawing on diverse studies of the mind, from psychology to linguistics, philosophy, and learning science, Art Markman, Ph.D., demonstrates the difference between smart thinking and raw intelligence, showing listeners how memory works, how to learn effectively, and how to use knowledge to get things done. He then introduces his own three-part formula for listeners to employ smart thinking in their daily lives.

Smart Thinking gives listeners:

  • The means to replace self-limiting habits with new behaviors that foster smart thinking
  • An understanding of the mind itself as well as memory
  • The ability to define and solve problems by finding and applying relevant knowledge
  • Ways to present and process information effectively

    " I throughly enjoyed this book. The author did a masterful job of combining the latest developments in cognitive sciences with real world examples. Furthermore he provides a series of applications that readers can use to develop their own cognitive abilities. "

    " The useful information in this book could be reduced to a note card. The illustrative examples read like a redundant series of infomercials. "

    " Would not recommend this book. Main ideas are made and then you are dragged on for another 25 pages. Read the chapter titles and main tips directly under the chapter title and send Markman 3 bucks. Save 12. "
