Reviews - What do our customers think?
for a more effective performance at work  Jul 25, 2003
Are you leading an active working life in which information and the solving of problems play a central part? Do you often find yourself incapable of living up to your potential, that is not being able to concentrate, remember things or find creative solutions? Then you might want to consider this book.

It gives you basic information about how your brain works and how this relates to the problems you experience, giving suggestions of how to overcome them. Starting with getting ready to learn, passing reflecting on and using what you have learned it ends with how to make conscious learning a daily part of your life, including tips how to balance between work, personal life and your aspirations in general. Also, it deals with all types of learning as opposed to only memorising facts.
The most inspiring and indeed useful bit of this book was the part about ensuring a creative, productive and enjoyable environment at work, how to make sure that everybody gets the most out of the information offered and how to overcome problem-solving barriers. Other positive things where the questions and fill-in forms designed to make you think about and apply the new information, as well as summaries at the end of each chapter to check whether the most important stuff has come across. You will also find out ways to make a company more successful in regard to making the most out of its human resources (and making them happy along the way), what learning-type you are and interesting stuff about multiple intelligence, much of it illustrated with nice example-stories and quotations.

I expected to be able to use my mind and memory more effectively after working my way through this book, but it simply doesn't help you to power up your mind, with the sole exception of helping you to become more creative. You don't learn techniques of how to remember things more effectively, nor do you learn how to become mentally fit and agile. True, it gives you some information on all of that, but it's more stuff to make you think and figure out your own approach (or buy another book) rather than hands-on things.

RECOMMENDABLE - If you want to understand yourself better as a learner and learn some ways to make working more enjoyable and effective, this book provides information about nearly every step to do so and gives you a basis to build upon when and if you should come across some hands-on mind and memory training.

NOT RECOMMENDABLE - If you're looking for ways to improve your memory or even your cognitive abilities, unless you're interested in the lay aspects of those parts of the learning-theory that have something to do with business life. This is really nothing for you if you're a student and looking for ways to improve your performance in school or at college.

YES for business people, NO for students and aspiring mind-acrobats.

Insightful!  Sep 18, 2002
In Power Up Your Mind, Bill Lucas attempts to teach readers how to learn. To accomplish this goal, he sets out to provide a blueprint to the workings of the human brain through easy-to-grasp descriptions and illustrations designed to explain how the brain ingests and processes information. What's lacking is a comprehensive review of the basic theories of learning that experts have deduced from the biological structures and mental functions that Lukas describes. Nevertheless, we from getAbstract recommend this book for its theoretical insights and practical advice about learning and memory.
