"This is a practical guide. Learn how to target 'in flow' and 'low-threshold' activities that engage people creatively and improve their work-flow and learning. Identify people's struggles and stress areas, including 'high-threshold' activities for which a person may avoid or do poorly. You will also enjoy a bird's eye view that summarizes many key aspects of the brain all in one place, in everyday language with case studies, work spaces, and visual maps."--Publisher's description.
