From the author of the bestselling 'Hare Brain, Tortoise Mind', comes a breakthrough book on the future of learning. The new sciences of brain and mind are revealing that everyone has the capacity to become a powerful, lifelong learner. We can all learn how to learn; it has little to do with conventional intelligence or educational success. Guy Claxton teaches us how to raise children who are curious and confident explorers, and how we ourselves can learn to pair problem-solving with creativity.
'Wise-Up' is essential and compelling reading for parents, educators and managers alike. Guy Claxton is Visiting Professor in Psychology and Education, and Director of the Research Programme on Culture and Learning in Organisations (CLIO), at the University of Bristol. He is the author of thirteen published books.
Originally published by the Bloomsbury Press as Wise up: the challenge of lifelong learning, 1999.
