I've read all comments here about the books layout/style aso.

My first impresseion, was; Gee - can I really read this book with all it's different fonts and odd drawings ?

But yes, I think it's excellent - It's very easilly read - even with my non-englisg-mother-tongue.

And the dumb-question-part - really nails it !

So I'm glad I waited since - was it..... march....

PS Why isn't there any Graemlins with a coffe-mug ?

Rgds, Henrik (DK)

I totally agree. I initially had my reservations about the irreverant, conversational style and use of fonts, cartoons etc. Well, I stand corrected. Turns out, that all the explanations in the opening screed about 'metacognition' and 'learning about learning' are actually true. Who'd a thunk it !

I've sailed through the first 150 pages in a couple of days and whats more surprising, for me anyway, is that the stuff is all sticking. I think my favourite aspect is the (intentional) repetition in the book which really makes the stuff go in. Only, as it comes at you from a different angle each time, it really doesn't feel like repetition at all.

Huge congratulations to the authors. My only fear now is having to return to weighty tomes of boring text for the rest of my studying topics.
