Peter Brown has tackled one of the most important areas for personal greatness: how to learn. In this episode of Unlocking Greatness, we delve into Peter’s latest book, Make It Stick written with Henry Roediger and Mark McDaniel of Washington University, to see how the common approach to learning new material is not the most effective. He brings examples of neurosurgeons, Marines, and football coaches, to show a unconventional approach to thinking and learning. This interview will show you how to train your mind to “make learning stick.”
Peter C. Brown is a management consultant turned writer and novelist. Brown’s latest book Make It Stick tears down the common notion of how we learn. He is also the author of The Fugitive Wife; Jumping the Job Track: Independent Consultant; and A Christmas Lake: A History, and The Complete Guide to Money Making Ventures for Nonprofit Organizations. Brown lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
