Smarter Than You Think

A revelatory and timely look at how technology boosts our cognitive abilities—making us smarter, more productive, and more creative than ever It’s undeniable—technology is changing the way we think. But is it for the better? Amid a chorus of doomsayers, Clive Thompson delivers a resounding “yes.” In Smarter Than You Think, Thompson shows that every technological innovation—from the written word to the printing press to the telegraph—has provoked the very same anxieties that plague us today. We panic that life will never be the same, that our attentions are eroding, that culture is being trivialized. But, as in the past, we adapt—learning to use the new and retaining what is good of the old. Smarter Than You Think embraces and extols this transformation, presenting an exciting vision of the present and the future.

then things begin to change. Depersonalizing thoughts start to fill your mind. You begin to think of your dog as nothing more than a bothersome possession.

Smarter Than You Think

Imagine a dog who listens to you, comes to you, follows you, and looks to you for guidance. This ideal relationship is possible with the techniques of veteran trainer Paul Loeb. His revolutionary philosophy is simple: your dog can learn more -- and more quickly -- if information is delivered properly. Loeb's groundbreaking theories and humane, holistic teaching style will get visible results in approximately three hours. Not only will you find step-by-step methods to teach housebreaking, paper training, and the basic commands, but you'll also discover: Why one-word commands, including "No," are ineffective Why food rewards and choke chains are not good training tools Why teaching your dog to come to you is essential -- and teaching your dog to sit is not How to adapt your dog's behavior to your lifestyle -- whether you need your dog to walk without a leash, ride politely in a car, remain on your property...or do just about anything else you can imagine! Now you can have the well-behaved dog you've always wanted -- and your dog will have an owner who understands his or her language. With Smarter Than You Think, you and your dog can share the special bond of true understanding.

You Are Smarter Than You Think  Using Your Brain the Way It Was Designed  the Missing Piece to Success

You are probably asking yourself, "Why do I need this book?" Well, maybe you don't. Consider the following questions and find out. 1. Do you have the feeling that you are a lot smarter than your efforts and grades indicate? 2. If you were given a comprehensive test today on material that you learned last semester, would you get a lower grade than you received originally? 3. Do you succeed in getting A's or B's but find you have to work very hard for them? 4. Do you spend hours studying and then perform poorly on tests? 5. When reading a textbook, do you reread the material often because you find it hard to remember? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, there is a very good possibility that this book will make a difference for you. Students who have used the YOU ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK learning system tell us that the following benefits have occurred for them: * Their grades improve * They spend less time studying - up to one third less time * They remember what they have learned longer * They experience less academic stress * They feel better about themselves HOW DOES THIS SYSTEM WORK? In the book, you are given two self- evaluations that help you discover how your brain works best. Then step by step you are shown what you need to do during lectures, textbook reading, test studying and test taking to maximize your learning and performance. Everyone's brain is different and this book will show you how to use your brain in the most effective way. What you learn will go into long-term memory where you can use it, not just spit it back. The research behind this book is based on work done by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard and commonly known facts about language processing from speech and language research. Learning by most today is pure guess work. Our research has shown that 95% of all college students don't have a clue about how they should study for maximum results. This book is for all high school and college students. It wil

The President is a Lot Smarter Than You Think

"It all started a few years ago with Vietnamization and protective reaction, and B.D., the charismatic quarterback from Garry Trudeau's syndicated comic strip Doonesbury, had it all figured out back then. He tells fellow ROTC man Bernie, no matter how seemingly incompetent our Chief Executive appears to be, he is actually far more crafty than we could possibly imagine. Before you know this thesis, read it. And while you're at it, check out Mark Slackmeyer, erstwhile student radical, and Arnie, the genteel and erudite bricklayer from the Ozarks, and see why the Doonesbury people populate one of the most popular cartoon strips in America." -- Page 4 of cover

Smarter Than You Think  Accessing Your Personal Powers to Triumph in College

Millions of students head to college every year. Yet only about half persist to earn their degree. Even among the "best and brightest," many struggle, drop out, fail, or step away. What's going on? And how can it be different for you? Smarter Than You Think: Accessing Your Personal Powers to Triumph in College reframes our concept of what it means to be smart in higher education. Take a groundbreaking and transformative journey with Professor Liff through the hidden foundation of college success; not IQ or achievement scores, high school grades or SAT's...but personal intelligence.

Discover the many ways to be intelligent. Then delve into the six major competencies that make up our personal, social and emotional intelligence: self-awareness, the capacity to regulate emotions and deal with disappointment and stress, the ability to set meaningful goals, knowing how to monitor your own progress and actions, having empathy for others, and social skills that help establish relationships, work well on a team, and even step up to leadership. Experience how they support, guide, and even rescue students during the changes and challenges of college life. You will be amazed at how these capacities promote success and champion academic performance - and happiness - throughout the college years and beyond. Along the way readers explore related incredibly valuable qualities for thriving in college: - Know how important it is to be optimistic. - Understand why delaying gratification is so vital for any student who wants to graduate. - Learn what it means to have grit and to keep going when you feel like quitting. - Reflect on issues shared by college students, so you won't be shocked by them or feel alone in your concerns. - Consider productive ways to communicate your needs and advocate for yourself. - Take valuable risks, like joining in, speaking out, finding your voice, and taking charge! - Learn tools to resolve conflicts with others and inside yourself. - Discover a remarkable potion for ditching procrastination and managing your time and workload; the number one challenge for every undergraduate. - Think about yourself often to consider your own reactions and reflections to things you learn or experience. There are many stopping points throughout the chapters of this book to do that! An engaging independent read, Smarter Than You Think, also works beautifully as an ancillary text for freshman college experience courses or university orientation programs. It far transcends typical "tips" for college students. In an encouraging and supportive voice, it weaves scholarly theory and research with compelling college issues and scenarios, true campus stories, insights and advice that packs every reader's book bag with the tools to thrive in school. Succeeding in college is not just about academics. Read Smarter Than You Think to understand, unlock, and apply your personal powers. You can grow them. Make them stronger.
