"I think kids would enjoy this book, because it has humor and you don't have to read the whole thing. Most kids just want to go to the part of the book they need and that's how 'Crush School' is supposed to be used. I liked that the author understands what kids go through and has experiences working with kids. He's not this rich billionaire, but someone who is just talking to you and trying to help you."
- Bailey Harper, 5th Grade Student
"I am a huge fan! I love the conversational style. I love that the casual language keeps it very real, but it doesn't sound forced, either. 'Crush School' is a perfect balance between solid research, concepts, and strategies along with examples, analogies, and humor. The messages are realistic and feel "doable" for the reader. The chapters are brief and to the point and hit on many aspects of successful learning. Amazing!"
- Lisa Hyland, Student Achievement Specialist/AVID Coordinator
"Learning how to learn is critical to helping all students succeed. 'Crush School' tells students exactly what they need to know and presents it in a way that students are far more likely to read it and apply. A book that every student would benefit from using."
- Nancy Weinstein, Founder and CEO of Mindprint Learning
"Great book. I would have my middle schoolers read it. I like the the tone of the book. The organizers and tips are awesome. I like that the author uses high level language. Usually, the authors water down language to appeal to readers. I think that if we expect the kids to understand the demanding academic lexicon they need to be exposed to it. No excuses after learning that their brain CAN learn!"
