Why do so many of us stop learning new skills as adults? Are we afraid to be bad at something? Have we forgotten the sheer pleasure of beginning from the ground up? Or is it simply a fact that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? In this webinar, bestselling author Tom Vanderbilt will share with us the five skills he chose to master and how, along the way, he interviewed dozens of experts to explore the fascinating psychology and science behind the benefits of becoming an adult learner. Vanderbilt will explain how anyone can get better at the beginning again–and, more importantly, why they should take those first steps.
