Drawing on research from a wide variety of subject areas, from neuroscience to psychology, from motivation theory to accelerated learning, from memory to diet, Power Up Your Mind shows how everyone has the capacity to succeed and how most people only use a very small portion of their talents.

For learning to be effective, an understanding of how the brain works is essential and unlike much recent thinking on the mind, Lucas connects an understanding of the brain with the reality of the workplace and translates what we know about the brain into useful insights for work.
