Liked the solid science based approach and explanation of techniques, except for the chapter about IQ which didn't seem so solid with empirical research and more based on wishful thinking about the intelligence potential being more or less equal between us all. In saying that I agree that we can all maximise what we are given genetically using the fantastic techniques within the book. Very practical approach to learning so that out kids are not having to work it out on the fly by themselves.
From reading this book I got a good idea of the most effective strategies for learning. It was also interesting how many of the learning techniques and ideas commonly held are misplaced. An example of one misplaced but commonly held idea is that there are different types of learners based on sense (e.g. 'visual learners').
