Mastery is a deep dive into the science of how people learn. It is not a pop science book. It is full of scientific discoveries rather than a straightforward explanation.

Unfortunately, there is a reason that most books are not this comprehensive. Most science, or at least reading about science, is pretty dry. Okay, I hate to say it, but this book is mostly boring. There are interesting insights, but I was hard pressed to stay awake long enough to find them. Mastery was not the book for me. It is like the abridged version of two years of college science classes. 2 stars.

Thanks to Prometheus and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
