Massimo Piattelli Palmarini

The Love of Study And How to Acquire It Translated from the Italian by Jacqueline Henry. Publication date : January 1, 1993

Grade school, high school, university, all these institutions teach facts. But in order to acquire and digest this information, there must first be a "click", one which defies description in any student handbook. One must have a thirst for knowledge and know how to acquire it. A book full of humor and wisdom that aims to spark in students young and old the desire that will allow them to succeed.

Massino Piatelli Palmarini, a specialist in cognitive science, is the director of research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston.
