An engaging read on how to learn complex topics. Dr. Oakley's used to struggle in math and science and say how her lack of math and technical skills limited her options to rise in the military when she made a career change, as well as exploring other careers. Dr. Oakley goes into the psychology behind focusing and breaking down a problem and showed how it helped her excel in Math and Science.
A Mind for Numbers was one of the recommended books in the Learning How to Learn course on coursera. The art of learning is a major passion of mine, and I wanted to learn from Dr. Oakley's insights in the area.
