Summary
In Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule--what scientists know for sure about how our brains work--and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives. The Brain Rules DVD is a lively tour of the 12 Brain Rules [with] clips from all 12 Brain Rules, bonus material, and MP3s from the Brain Rules audio book--From http://www.brainrulesbook.com
