"One lesson to embrace now and throughout your life is: the more you learn, the more you will be humbled by how little you know and have yet to learn. Think about thinking - not knowing." This statement flies in the face of the adage preached by parents and teachers for generations - "the more you know the better...." It is intriguing to consider intellectual curiosity more important than stored knowledge. What an eye opener.
And multitasking? Where does it rank? Not so high according to the author. Well, read all about it in her book, Make Your Brain Smarter. She gives tips for good brain health and exercise from cradle to grave.
You can find the book in the new book area in the lobby immediately to the left as you enter.
