By weird coinsidence Kathy Sierra follows up on the How to Read and Digest a Book! I posted about yesterday with a post named Dealing with a legacy brain... where she chronicles the problems with trying to get your brain to want the same things as you do.

Basically the brain is hard wired to live in the stone age where such things as food is hard to come by, and danger is around in abundance. Today we face almost exactly the opposite situation: Food is abundant for people of the western world, and dangerous situations almost only happens if you actively seek them out.

This is very much relevant for your learning process which you will learn when reading Dealing with a legacy brain... by Kathy Sierra. She even details a couple of techniques you can use to better process new information.
