Published In: United Kingdom, 08 May 2003
A few years after this classic book on how to improve your brain power was first published in 1974, a fairly average 'O' level student announced that he intended to try for a place at Cambridge University. His chances were assessed as 'slim' since his grades were usually unexceptional Cs and Bs. But with the help of Use Your Head the student went on to achieve four As at A-level, two star firsts at Cambridge and a top job with a multinational company. The reasons he gives for this astounding success? Since 1974, Use Your Head has been translated into over 20 languages and has been published in five continents and 50 countries, has sold well over a million copies and still the demand increases! Its author Tony Buzan, the inventor of Mind Maps [trademark] and the concept of mental literacy, has become a 'Brain Star'. He now travels the world teaching his thinking, learning and memory techniques to help people to awaken that sleeping giant - the human brain. Use Your Head will teach you the vital skills of Learning How to Learn.
