The Art of Study
AbstractReviews the book, by T. H. Pear . This little volume, printed on heavy paper and attractively bound, is an elaboration of a series of broadcasts to school children on the subject of "How to Concentrate." It repeats with variations the maxims found in most books on this subject, but differs in that it presents the topics in an interesting manner, using a non-technical vocabulary and a friendly conversational style. Much of the book does not seem to bear directly upon its title, e.g., in chapter III is a discussion of individual differences in ease of learning, and in chapter X, Intelligence and Stupidity. But from the latter part of chapter IV, How to Listen, through chapter VIII, Practical Aids for Memorizing, there is plenty of meat Chapter VI, How to Form Habits of Study, is worth the price of the book. The psychology is sound, it is worth any one's reading, and offers valuable suggestions to those who seriously want to form habits of study.
