Publisher's Summary

Becoming a more effective learner and boosting your productivity will help you earn better grades - but it’ll also cut down on your study time. This is a short, meaty audiobook that will guide you through 10 steps to achieving those goals:

  • Pay better attention in class
  • Take more effective notes
  • Get more out of your textbooks
  • Plan like a general
  • Build a better study environment
  • Fight entropy and stay organized
  • Defeat procrastination
  • Study smarter
  • Write better papers
  • Make group projects suck less

Whether you’re in college or high school, this book will probably help you. But not if you’re a raccoon. I want to be very clear about that; if you’re a raccoon, please buy a different book. This one will do absolutely nothing for you. How did you even learn to read, anyway?

Very Helpful!

My daughter and I listened to this book on the way to college!

It is the perfect length and the content is rich! I’m very hopeful that listening and talking about these things will help her have more confidence heading into her first year! Highly Recommend!

Would read again

Really enjoyed listening to the book. Will consistently come back to this book since it was really helpful, inspiring and most of all motivating. Got my mind rolling on what I should do as my next step to not just become a better student, but a better learner and leader. Thank you so much.

A very detailed resource for students of any age

It is clear to me that Thomas Frank has a great future ahead of him. His tong-in-cheek style helps the concepts he explains more digestible and it makes an otherwise "dry" reading very enjoyable. The research presented is sound and the advise provided is easily applicable, which makes it al the more valuable. Kudos to Thomas Frank for making such a great contribution to students everywhere!

One of the best

this is abseloutly one of the best books to read if you want to improve as a student.
the advice comes from great research, and the personal experiences of the auther. And it doesnt hurt that it's spiced with Thomas humor.

Simple, easy to understand and effective

I've been a long time follower of Thomas Frank, and this, perhaps is one of his best works.

Having already read the book, the tips, tricks and advice given in the book gives a clear picture of what you need to do to succeed, and with Frank's advice, the ideas are simple to implement in your life.

Having listened to the book, I feel like I have absorbed more, as hearing the author himself read it feels more personal, and his informative yet friendly tone keeps the listener engaged throughout.

Highly recommended to my fellow students and others alike!
