This is the 2nd Buzan book I've read, and it's exceptional. Buzan tells readers what the educational system doesn't. He tells about the brain, eyes, and the nature of concentration. How they function and affect memory. About various motives for learning. How key words and key phrases focus memory. This book gives much information about reading. Tells many myths about reading. How reading fast doesn't decrease concentration or appreciation. That words don't need to read one at a time, and that average reading speed isn't the "Natural Speed". In other words it give information on Speed Reading. How most learning is about connecting words to images - images that are Large, Loud, Exceptional, Ridiculous, Humorous, Sexual, Obscene, Exceptional, about the Senses, or Brightly Coloured. The educational system limits reading to simply recognition and recall. To truly learn someone must recognize, assimilate, form internal links, analyse, select and reject, store knowledge, recall knowledge. Then be able to apply knowledge - through demonstration or description.
