Hard not to read in one sitting!

This book is probably one of the most comprehensive books on learning out there. Not only did I learn about productive failure and how scaffolding is problematic, but I saw how strategies that I've always taken for granted, such as scaffolding and highlighting, do not work. This book also busts the myth of there being different 'learning styles' - which was news to me. Lastly, I like how the book gives concrete examples of how to make learning secondary and fun ("gamification"). To top it off, each chapter ends with a bulleted list of main points, as does the book as a whole. Strongly recommend!
