Dr. Mel Levine's revolutionary theory says that very few people are truly lazy. Rather, nearly all "lazy" children and unproductive adults suffer from "output failure"--a problem of the mind. "The Myth of Laziness" identifies the indicators of this failure.
Different minds learn differently.
And that's a problem for many children, because most schools still cling to a one-size-fits-all education philosophy. In A Mind at a Time, Dr. Levine shows parents and others who care for children how to identify these individual learning patterns.
