This book illuminates the mental process for learning to solve real problems, and for learning how to learn effectively.
We can use either rote memorization or real comprehension, with any subject. In school we are taught explicitly how to memorize. But, we are not taught the "understanding" process, and understanding often becomes a hit-or-miss affair. This book shows teachers and students exactly what the mental process of understanding is, and exactly how to use it.
The comprehension process is Iconic Pattern Recognition. It is universal, understandable, and remarkably easy-to-use. This book is your guide to what happens in your thoughts that comprises “understanding.” You already use this thought-process sometimes. Discover how to use it at will, whenever you need it, for yourself or others.
This is not another book about study habits or learning styles or brain research. It is about thinking. It explains the hard-to-notice, experiential thought process that we call “understanding.” It shows exactly how and why intelligent, motivated students sometimes fail to understand what they study. More importantly, it shows studentsand teachers exactly how to fix the problem.
It reveals the general principal involved in effective teaching, used by all master teachers.

D. F. Carl currently lives next to Miniscule Mountain Park in New Hampshire. For most of his life, he has studied thinking (not to be confused with what psychologists study, e.g. measurable physiological responses or behavior). He has noted that big problems are rarely solved with the same kind of approach that created them. For example, despite decades of accumulated theories in educational psychology, half of American students still fail to understand algebra or higher math. Forgoing advanced degrees in educational psychology, he has explored less-orthodox but more immediately-practical ways of thinking about educational problems.
