"This book offers the most practical and realistic method by which to help students succeed. Period! Nothing out there now is more specifically aimed at student success. Teachers will find this book extremely useful, and if they do, then the real usefulness of the book will be for the students whose lives it touches."

"This is a serious effort to give a step-by-step method through which students can maximize their learning strengths and transform into engaged, successful learners. Greene addresses the question of how the learning of students in Grades 9-12 can be made more effective. He provides very concrete strategies to answer this question."
