Thomas Edison is one of the most prolific inventors in history, with over one thousand patents to his name. Nothing got in the way of his creativity. Even as his lab was burning to the ground in a horrific accidental fire, Edison was excitedly sketching up plans for a new lab, even bigger and better than before. How could Edison be so phenomenally creative? The answer, as you’ll see, relates to his unusual tricks for shifting his mode of thinking.
Shifting between the focused and diffuse modes
For most people, shifting from focused to diffuse mode happens naturally if you distract yourself and then allow a little time to pass. You can go for a walk, take a nap, or go to the gym. Or you can work on something that occupies other parts of your brain: listening to music, conjugating Spanish verbs, or cleaning your gerbil cage The key is to do something else until your brain is consciously free of any thought of the problem. Unless other tricks are brought into play, this generally takes several hours. You may say – I don’t have that kind of time. You do, however, if you simply switch your focus to other things you need to do, and mix in a little relaxing break time.
Creativity expert Howard Gruber has suggested that one of the three "B’s" usually seems to do the trick: the bed, the bath, or the bus One remarkably inventive chemist of the mid-1800s, Alexander Williamson, observed that a solitary walk was worth a week in the laboratory in helping him progress in his work.(Lucky for him there were no smartphones then.) Walking spurs creativity in many fields; a number of famous writers, for example, including Jane Austen, Carl Sandburg, and Charles Dickens, found inspiration during their frequent long walks.
Once you are distracted from the problem at hand, the diffuse mode has access and can begin pinging about in its big-picture way to settle on a solution. After your break, when you return to the problem at hand, you will often be surprised at how easily the solution pops into place. Even if the solution doesn’t appear, you will often be further along in your understanding. It can take a lot of hard, focused mode work beforehand, but the sudden, unexpected solution that emerges from the diffuse mode can make it feel almost like the "Ah-hah!" mode.

O livro é sensacional, indispensável para qualquer um que queira tornar o estudo mais eficiente.
Learning is full of paradoxes. You have to focus, but knowing that a misleading focus may get you stuck. You gotta work deeply, but you also need to take breaks. You have to read a lot, but not just read, you have to recall.
I've come to this book because I loved Barbara Oakely's course Learning How to Learn. I love how she teaches! I'll always use the knowledge from the course and from her book to learn new things. I recommend for anyone who wants to learn how to learn.
O próprio livro usa das mesmas técnicas de aprendizagem que ensina para o leitor, como o resumo, que auxilia na primeira leitura do capítulo e os lembretes no final de cada seção que indicam para o leitor relembrar as ideias chaves do texto lido.
Indico a todos os estudantes, apesar de ainda não existir a versão em língua portuguesa, a linguagem desse livro é simples!
Recomendo totalmente a compra e leitura, em poucos dias já notei melhoras na minha rotina de estudos e aulas :)
Aguardando versão traduzida para o Português. Conheci a obra e pesquisa da autora através do curso online "Aprendendo a Aprender", disponibilizado no pelo portal Coursera, com legendas em Português.

Despite its 263 pages the basic revelation of this book is to study hard for short periods and then take a break and this is supposed to be the result of years of research in cognitive science that the author has allegedly undertaken for us. Where the book does get slightly interesting is in its presentation of memory improvement techniques but these are far better and more thoroughly presented in countless other publications and have their origins in at least ancient Greece.
My only conclusion with this disappointing read it that what little bit of originality it has is simply dull and where it isn't dull it is unoriginal. I suppose this book may be of some use to first year students just starting a university course in a scientific, or indeed any other, subject but only if they have no knowledge or experience whatsoever in basic study skills.
Overall, many strategies here may be old adages you've heard before. The evidence and reasoning, however, are so outstanding that you'll actually find yourself incorporating these modifications into your life.
There were times in this book where I teared up. There times that had me smiling and chuckling. But most of all, this book gave me the tools to study effectively and the reassurance I needed to simply try. I want to see how far I can go.
One of the things that i really like is that there is flexibility in the application, as opposed to a "do it this way" approach. It gives you a toolbox of methods and you can pick the methods that work best for you and how you learn, by inspiring the reader to creatively find the method that works for them.
