This is a beautiful book, and essential reading for anyone who teaches, communicates, and/or simply enjoys asking interesting new questions. Sousa is as focused in his communication of a significant body of information as he is clever in his approach. The book excels at explaining how the brain learns, but its greatest strength lies in Sousa's ability to create the learning experience in book form that he hopes to inspire in others' classroom leadership. He provides copious, current, and well-documented information about the brain, and immediately helps the reader apply that to their own experience. He then helps the reader create their own structures within which they can begin to share their new-found knowledge and processes. Further, it reads easily, and can be digested in small chunks, or read in a concentrated sitting. If you are a lover of learning or science, or just want to read a really well-written book, pick this one up.
