Peterson, Kolb – How You Learn Is How You Live: Using Nine Ways of Learning to Transform Your Life
Being a lifelong learner is one of the secrets to happiness, success, and personal fulfillment. This book awakens and enhances the power of learning that lies within us. David Kolb originated the concept of Experiential Learning Theory – a systematic approach to understanding how we learn – and in this book he and Kay Peterson take what has up until now been a powerful professional development tool and make it accessible to a popular audience.
Peterson and Kolb offer deep, research-based insights into how we learn, what Kolb calls the Experiential Learning Cycle. Then they identify nine specific learning styles and guide you in identifying your dominant style. This will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses as a learner, but they emphasize that flexibility is the key to lifelong learning. So they suggest ways you can expand your repertoire of learning styles. This book is an eye-opening listen for anyone who wants to continue to grow and meet life challenges in a transformative way
