How We Learn by Benedict Carey

How We Learn

The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens

By Benedict Carey

Buy the book
In How We Learn, there are specific case studies that show, based on the brain and how it actually works, science-backed strategies for retaining knowledge. For instance, things like taking breaks and getting a good night’s sleep are far more beneficial than staying up late to study more. Additionally, teaching the information you learned back to others is better than just reading notes and highlighting pages.

Creativity, Inc.

Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration

By Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace

Buy the book
Before I read Creativity, Inc., I already knew about the relationship between Disney and Pixar as I had read Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. I knew that Steve basically saved Pixar, but I only got a glimpse of that story through Steve’s and Walter’s perspectives. I was eager to learn more about the Disney and Pixar relationship to find inspiration, but to also learn more about the drama that unfolded between the two companies. And from the perspective of the president and co-founder of Pixar, Ed Catmull! So I dove right in.

What I found the most surprising, almost immediately, was the focus of the book. More than just a history of Pixar, Creativity, Inc. is centered around lessons related to team management and team building. Of course, when those essential business lessons are centered around some of my favorite movies, such as Toy Story and Up, it makes it all that more exciting. It was also really fascinating to get a glimpse inside their relationship with Disney Animation, and how they decided to keep the Pixar team separate, even when Disney bought Pixar in 2006.
