In 1985 Colin Rose wrote a book called Accelerated Learning that brought together leading research at that time to show how learning could be an enjoyable and satisfying experience. Using this research Rose developed the highly successful and effective Accelerated Learning Language courses that you have probably seen advertised in the press. With the onset of the Millennium, Colin Rose has teamed up with Malcolm Nicholl to update his groundbreaking book for the next century. This book is packed with useful information not only for the academic seeking to research the whole issue of learning and thinking, but also for the concerned parent, the corporate trainer and yes the most important person of all - the interested learner. The authors put the need to be an effective learner into the context of today's ever evolving information age and have developed a six point blueprint for success in Learning. Using the acronym M*A*S*T*E*R their plan can be summarised as follows:

Step 1 - Motivating your Mind.

Step 2 - Acquiring the Information.

Step 3 - Searching out the Meaning.

Step 4 - Triggering the Memory.

Step 5 - Exhibiting what you Know.

Step 6 - Reflecting on How you have Learned.

By examining each step in detail Rose and Nicholl explain the application of the blueprint, backing up their claims with examples of success from their own work and that of other researchers. There are separate chapters for teachers and trainers, the corporate world and schools. Also discussed are the areas of Creative and Analytical Thought. Most relevant to Project HappyChild is the Chapter entitled "It's never too early". This explains in great detail about the importance of providing a stimulating environment for your children from the day that they are born to maximise the development of their learning abilities. Just for this chapter alone, I will be recommending the book to everyone I know who might possibly have anything whatsoever to do with the upbringing of children. After reading this book you will understand your own learning style, and that of your children and how to exploit it so that you and your children can learn effectively, efficiently and have fun doing so. I would like to see every teacher given a copy of this book because if the information in it were applied in the classrooms of the world, we would see a dramatic change in the results (both academic and more importantly social) that schools produce.

Accelerated Learning for the 21st Century, by Colin Rose and Malcolm J.Nicholl costs Ł12.99 and can be obtained from good bookstores everywhere (ISBN 0-7499-1762-8).
