Summary
  • Whether you're training to play the piano, speak a foreign language, shoot a target with a bow and arrow, or master the techniques of fine carpentry, the conditions of your training will affect how successfully you learn and perform. How can you process new information in order to remember it better and use it in the future? How long should you work, study, or practice before taking a break? Is it desirable or even possible to "overlearn"? How can you counteract fatigue and boredom to improve performance if the task is tedious?

Readers will learn how best to acquire, retain, and transfer knowledge and skills to new situations.
