Through the wide and varied teaching experience of the author, he has compiled a new approach towards teaching consisting of essentially four diverse avenues to knowledge acquisition. These learning styles include the'Professor', who immediately wants to know What is the vital information, the 'Trouble-shooter' who wants to know Why and How things work, the 'Inventor' who wants to take the knowledge and tweak it for better understanding, and the 'Guide' who is looking for the connection with others and is mostly concerned with the bigger picture. Mr. Kennedy explores these four categories into greater depth and spends quite a bit of time describing practical exercises anyone can use within a teaching and learning environment. I think that one must respect Mr. Kennedy for the incredible amount of background and research he has compiled for this enlightening book. While there are so many different approaches and theories out on the market, I found Mr. Kennedy's tried and tested approach to be extremely intuitive and refreshingly logical in comparison. I enjoyed reading about his personal experiences that I felt added to the overall benefit of the book. I particularly was impressed with the easy to understand practical ways highlighted throughout the book and feel that these will be easily implemented within an educational context. Due to this user-friendly emphasis, I can only imagine how when put into practice this can revolutionize your teaching and job satisfaction at a job well done.
