The Power of Mindful Learning

By Ellen J. Langer
Da Capo Press; 1 edition (March 17, 1998)

Dr. Langer takes her previously presented research in Mindfulness and applies it directly to learning. She explores seven myths, or mindsets, which have debilitating effects on the learning process. To counter the mindlessness of mindsets, she presents three characteristics of mindfulness: continuous creation, openness to new information and awareness of more than one perspective. Her examples of mindful learning can be directly applied to both practicing and performing. Reviewed by Jeanne H. Weisman.
