Barbara Oakley, Ph.D., is a professor of engineering at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan; a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, San Diego; and Coursera’s inaugural “Innovation Instructor.” Her research involves bioengineering with a focus on the complex relationship between neuroscience and social behavior.  People may feel like they’re at a disadvantage if they pursue a new field later in life, consequently falling into career ruts and feeling pigeon-holed into their career track. It’s easy to feel stuck or stagnant in life, and not know how to keep progressing.  Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential by Barbara Oakley is solidly based on cutting edge science about how to change your brain to feel passion for learning something new and different—even things you thought you always disliked.
