What People are saying about this

John R. Silber
This uncompromising title foreshadows the clarity and honesty contained within . . . The student who reads [this] carefully will be prepared not merely for success in school, but for something far more important: a life of self-fulfillment. David R. Godine is to be praised for bringing this remarkable book before the public in a new edition. (John R. Silber, President, Boston University)
Jill Ker Conway
He speaks truthfully about the discipline required for learning, and about the pleasures of order and system in acquiring knowledge. Any reader, of any age, will enjoy this book. (Jill Ker Conway, Author and Former President, Smith College)
Ann Quinn
An indispensable classic; comprehensive, clear, pragmatic. (Ann Quinn, Dean of Studies, Deerfield Academy)
Marlyn McGrath Lewis
There is much to admire in this wonderfully commonsensical book. The optimistic, and realistic, assumption that learning is accessible to the ambitious, that one can learn how to learn, underlies a kind of democratic scholasticism. Mr. Armstrong knows that the bright futures belong to students who make the effort. The modest effort required to read this practical little book should be handsomely repaid, in school and in life. (Marlyn McGrath Lewis, Director of Admissions, Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges)
