I’m indebted to each of the following individuals for taking the time to review 10 Ways to Be a Better Learner and offer their thoughts:

“As an educator and lifelong learner, I think that Jeff Cobb does a tremendous job of showing how you can stretch your mind to its fullest potential. The ideas in this book are research-based and insightful, and I love his ideas on attaining a “beginner’s mind” to become a learner who can affect the world in positive ways. We all know where we want to go – the challenge is how to get there. 10 Ways to Be a Better Learner will make that journey easier.”
