Think smart people are just born that way? Think again.

Drawing on diverse studies of the mind, from psychology to linguistics, philosophy, and learning science, Art Markman, Ph.D., demonstrates the difference between "smart thinking" and raw intelligence, showing readers how memory works, how to learn effectively, and how to use knowledge to get things done. He then introduces his own three-part formula for readers to employ "smart thinking" in their daily lives.

Smart Thinking gives readers:

*The means to replace self-limiting habits with new behaviors that foster smart thinking
*An understanding of the mind itself as well as memory
*The ability to define and solve problems by finding and applying relevant knowledge
*Ways to present and process information effectively

-Craig Wynett & Dr. Mehmet Oz

"It is top notch."
-Dr. Phil McGraw
