First published in 1980. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
`This is a fascinating book - for everyone who is able to appreciate the human brain, which, Russell says, is the most complex and most powerful information processor known to man. It is especially relevant for those called upon to read a great deal when time is limited, or who attend lectures and seminars and need to take notes. This book will stimulate these people to develop their skills in brain development.' - Nursing Times
`It will be seen that the book ranges wide over the important aspects of study and self-management. To those who have long been interested in the problems of effective learning it will come as no surprise, although even they will enjoy the trip through the book. To those who have never given the matter a thought, it can be safely and warmly recommended.' - Education and Training
