This book is filled with very valuable information but for students who struggle with reading or learning it isn't formatted in a way to encourage them to keep reading. My 16 year old daughter picked up the book after reading the cover and flipped through the pages. Her comment was "That's too bad I don't have time for all that." My 13 year old son didn't even comment when he set it down.

I think teachers could implement this into a classroom in a chapter by chapter or edited version with great

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway win. I never read self-help books but was intrigued by the author's background as a doctor of Neurology. I was an excellent student with what seemed like unusual studying habit, and an atypical brain, and was curious about his findings. It turns out that my study habits were indeed excellent, although I came up with them on my own as a child, so I didn't learn anything from the book. However, if I recall a lot of my peer at the time, this book will be ...more

Actually a good book very scientific approach from a medical doctor. Some common sense tips that might be to obvious to be recognized by most people but still have a good impact on our learning. The key information in this book is, that you should take care of your brain, preview and review material with every study session, visualize and make many associations with things you already now. Interesting was the number transcription method and the small excurse on the memory palace method, which is ...more

This is an absolute must read for any aspiring student, high school or college. As a senior citizen, I so wish I had had access to this book so much earlier in my Academic life. Most of my learning now comes from reading, and watching video courses, this book actually encourages me to attend classes where additional communication with teachers and other students would enhance my continued learning experiences. Loved the book!

I just received the book today and finished it rather quickly. As a mother of a senior in high school, this will be a very helpful resource for him now and in the near future. This is a must read for any student, but especially for those who struggle with time management, organization and study skills.

Mostly a review for me. However, very good tips and methods for new college students who have gaps in their study skills. There are a few things that I picked up that I will be using on the students I tutor.
