How to Be a Beginner, With Journalist Tom Vanderbilt

This week we're learning how to embrace being a beginner again (and why we should) with help from journalist Tom Vanderbilt. Tom is the best-selling author of Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us), and You May Also Like: Taste in an Age of Endless Choice, and his latest book is Beginners: The Joy and Transformative Power of Lifelong Learning. Listen to hear Tom describe how becoming a beginner again can change your perspective and offer multiple cognitive benefits, as well as tips on how to get over the initial hump of getting started.
