Get Coding!: Learn HTML, CSS & JavaScrip... Get Coding!: Learn HTML, CSS & JavaScript & Build a Website, App & Game - Young Rewired State

For any computer wiz kid or inspiring to be, this book is a great addition to their library. Simplified information that it can almost be considered a dummy guide for adults as well, lol. A number of hands on projects that help to reinforce what they've learned and just over all a lot of fun to read through.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Liberating Knitting
Knitter's Lib: Learn to Knit, Crochet, and Free Yourself from Pattern Dependency - Lena Maikon

This book helps beginner knitters to begin to design their own work, teaches them a little crochet and helps them to feel more comfortable making things. They use a variety of materials and tools. It is actually quite interesting, but I was not fond of some of the patterns.

Professor of Something: "Learn Better" by Ulrich Boser
Learn Better: Mastering the Skills for Success in Life, Business, and School, or, How to Become an Expert in Just About Anything - Ulrich Boser

“The act of writing is a good example of metacognition because when we think about composing sentences and paragraphs, we’re often asking ourselves crucial metacognitive questions: Who will be reading this? Will they understand me? What things do I need to explain? This is why writing is often such an effective way to organize one’s thoughts. It forces us to evaluate our arguments and think about ideas. […] some describe writing as a form of “applied metacognition”.

 

In “Learn Better” by Ulrich Boser

 

 

When I was a kid, we played football (the European version; I hate the word soccer) all day and must have been well over 10K hours. None of us got near even semi pro football. My son could do sprint training for 4 hours every night but he's not going to be Usain Bolt. There are thousands of musicians who have put in the practice but they're all on the 9 to 5 as well like myself (well, I’m more on the 08:30 to no-end-in-sight schedule, bit that’s just me being my usual obnoxious self…). Are we supposed to believe a la Gladwell that if we put in 10K hours we’ll become experts at something? I don’t believe this number, and neither does Boser. I think it’s just a number which Gladwell thought would look good in one of his books (I forget which).

 

What about thinking about learning? Is there something there?

 

 

 

If you're into stuff like this, read on.

Learning to Knit with Scarves
Knitting Scarves For Beginners (Learn How to Knit) - Olivia Clark

If you are wanting to learn how to knit this is a good book to start with. I always tell people I am teaching to borrow books (or in this case buy the Kindle book...I got this for free) and read them and figure out which book makes the most sense. Everyone learns differently and some learn from watching videos (or a person teaching them) while others learn from reading (like I do). This book is well put together for helping someone learn how to knit. It has some simple scarves to practice the different stitches with.
