LESSONS FROM THE ART OF JUGGLING
Do you want to learn how to juggle? Do you want to learn how to learn? If the answer is yes to both of those questions, then Lessons from the Art of Juggling by Michael J. Gelb and Tony Buzan is the book for you. It helps you realise that learning is a rewarding and joyful process and that your potential for learning is virtually unlimited. You will also be pleased to hear that your ability to learn can actually improve as you get older. One of the reasons that we hold back from trying to learn something new is that we are scared of making a mistake. Guess what? It is okay to make mistakes because by making mistakes, we actually learn. So if you make more mistakes, you are actually learning more. But what has this got to do with juggling? Well you try and learn to juggle without dropping the ball. If you are not dropping the ball, you are not making progress because the nature of learning is a series of apparent "set backs" interwoven with plateaus of skill stagnation and the joyous bursts of sharp improvement and steady progress. If you don't want to learn how to juggle you can still gain something from this book because the juggling is just a metaphor used to illustrate the learning process. This book covers how to use models of excellence, the power of visualization, the process of trial and error, how to become a successful coach and the importance of play in the learning process. If however, you do want to learn to juggle using this book, persevere with the explanations and diagrams because it is always a struggle to learn a physical activity from the written word. If you know someone who can juggle, get him or her to demonstrate what is being described so that you can see how it should be done - otherwise, prepare to be frustrated.
Lessons from the Art of Juggling by Michael J. Gelb and Tony Buzan is published by Aurum Press (ISBN 1 85410 324 5) and is available from all good book shops at £9.99.
