The Owners Manual for the Brain

Because attention, interest, memory and recall are such a big part of what you do as a presenter, I’ve given a lot of study time to these topics.

From these sub-topics it is just a short hop to gaining, al least, some understanding of brain science or Mind-Brain Research. At the head of it’s champions is Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owner's Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind-Brain Research 3rd Edition.

In recent years, I’ve come to depend on its authenticity with regard to my personal (and limited) understanding of the cognitive sciences.

This book has a massive 1006 pages, , , and in them, a lot of real practical suggestions as to how you and your family can “get the most out of your brain.”

And as a public speaker, you need to be correctly anchored in how the brains of your audiences really work. For instance, the mind of the typical adult learner is capable of great things, , , but it also has some extreme limitations.

To be the best possible public speaker, you need to be aware of both possibilities and limitations the human brains.

I’ve prepared another Quotation Slideshow, to give you some handsome insight into the practical content of this big thick book. Enjoy!
