Accelerated Learning into the 21st Century contains a simple but proven plan that delivers the one key skill that every working person, every parent and student must master, and every teacher should teach: it's learning how to learn. The theory of eight multiple intelligences (linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist) developed by Howard Gardner at Harvard University provides a foundation for the six-step MASTER-Mind system to facilitate learning (an acronym for Mind, Acquire, Search, Trigger, Exhibit, and Review), and is enhanced by the latest findings on the value of emotion and memory on the process of learning.
Combined with motivational stories of success applying these principles, and putting forth a clear vision of how the United States can dramatically improve the education system to remain competitive in the next century, Accelerated Learning into the 21st Century is a dynamic tool for self-improvement by individuals as diverse as schoolchildren and corporate executives.

A Comprehensive compendium of everything Accelerated Learning. The Chapters close with mind-maps detailing the main topics covered. The books begins with some explanation of the theoretical concepts and the 'science' of the brain: (left-right brain, types of intelligences, memory, brain states and waves, etc.), the main focus is on practical, usable ideas that can applied in everyday learning situations. These ideas cover everything from memorizing, learning languages, analytical thinking, creative thinking and even corporate learning.
While anybody can derive value from the ideas presented in the book it is most valuable for students and those in conventional academic environments. If I had this book when I was in college, I would definitely have fared much better! Non-students might find it a bit too long, and not as practical.

I felt that the book was more a documentery rather than a learning tool I should have known,the bibliography alone was seven pages and thought that was strange.If you are looking for a history lesson in accelerated learning then this is the book for you if not keep looking.Was this review helpful?
