James Taranto at the WSJ interviews author Barbara Oakley about her new book Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential. The book is helpful to readers who want to be lifelong learners:
Learning beyond the classroom is the subject of her new book. She defines a“mindshift” as “a change in your outlook that occurs through intensive learning”—such as her own mastery of math and engineering. The book is filled with advice for people who are considering a career change or who seek todevelop “an attitude of lifelong learning,” even in retirement.”
I read a galley of the book and it is very helpful and fun for those who want to retain and learn new information as well as continue to grow on various careers paths throughout life.
