Your brain learns in a way entirely foreign to how you have been taught. That’s a bold statement, and I am asking you to suspend your beliefs in traditional learning and teaching methods while you read this book. This will be to your advantage.
The author's purpose in writing this book is to share what he has learned from his experience as a corporate trainer working with various cultures, and his training and research as a hypnotherapist and a practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). A great deal of his study dealt with what lies beyond conscious learning.
In this book you will learn how the brain processes information, and how emotions and beliefs affect learning. You will discover that the way your brain is wired can be altered both intentionally and unintentionally. With this knowledge, you can effectively apply the accelerated learning tools and techniques found in the latter part of this book.
No matter how well you think you learn, after reading this book, you will be able to achieve more, in less time, with less effort.

In easy-to-understand language, this book explains how the brain processes information, how learning is affected by emotions and core beliefs, and how innate brain wiring can be altered both intentionally and unintentionally.
