This a collection of simple yet very helpful tips to put yourself in learning mode. Which is useful virtually every minute of anybody's life - and if you don't think so well you're already dead... for now. As most things simple they are obvious often only in hindsight. The tips and neurological perspective provided in this course are of immense value. After following the course I reckoned that I sort of knew it before. But really the advice and information they give is worth being taught and/or remembered. The teachers' pedagogy is excellent and their enthusiasm communicating. I will certainly remember the octopus and pinball illustrations of the brain, et the key role of exercise on brain activity. Big big social value !
I'm not surprised this course is so popular. After all I went to see it after I read an article about its phenomenal success on the NYT.
