    Yes. I keep it on my books shelf as a reference because the research is
    the most reliable and I recommended it in my weekly column that I write
    for the Journal Newspapers. I also recommend: Teaching With The Brain In
    Mind published by ASCD by Jensen, The Secret Life of the Brain by Restak
    and PBS program and The Owners Manual for The Brain by Peterson. I have
    applied to Harvard to pursue my interest. I am reading Peterson's book
    today; schools and everything else are closed due to icy roads.

    PS. About a year ago The National Academies move to 5th street NW in DC;
    I have to pass it and their headquarters and bookstore on my way to the
    courthouse. They have great sales.

    Dear Van, Are you reading "How People Learn? The fourth chapter about
    the infants and their predisposition to learn was fascinating. I have
    repeated some of the case stories to everyone I know.

    I have been a lawyer for more than 20 years; I just completed 24
    semesters hours of graduate work in education. I am fascinated by the
    new discoveries in brain science. I have applied to Harvard to take
    courses in cognitive science. The brain is the primary organ for
    learning; the more we know about it the better we can teach.

    Greetings to other students in The Learning Classroom series. I just
    got started and am working on session 2. I find the readings
    fascinating, especially the ones from the book, How People Learn. Are
    all of you classroom teachers?
