Book Review: Doyle & Zakrajsek's _The New Science of Learning_

Doyle, Terry & Zakrajsek, Todd.  (2013).  The New Science of Learning: How to Learn in Harmony With Your Brain.  Sterling, VA:  Stylus.  126 pages.

Advances in brain science have opened up our understanding of how the brain makes and retains memories—i.e., learning.  This book, written for students, examines how the brain processes new information, what makes us pay attention, and how important sleep and exercise are for memory.  An excellent book for any student--or faculty member, for that matter!
