I feel Dr Larson's reviews and consolidates some of the best thinking in modern cognitive psychology for medical students, having recently studied and implemented the strategies himself.
One thing I constantly stress to younger co-workers (and David's book agrees I think) is the insurmountable importance of the sleep-diet-exercise triad. If you get enough sleep, eat healthy, and get a good blast of exercise each day, you should feel great, be mentally sharp, and have the means to excel in med school or whatever else. In particular I see students and young knowledge workers shortchanging sleep--and then they wonder why they can't retain material or get tricky concepts to "click." Please, please, kids, prioritize 8 hours of sleep. I mean that as a parental figure with your success and happiness in mind.
Anyway, good book, I recommend for anyone in a knowledge profession, along with the works of Barbara Oakley and Cal Newport. Even if you're a high school student, I would recommend reading. The sooner the better.
While I find the book's tips to be useful, I think it could use some editing to have better organization and flow. There are also many grammatical errors throughout (your vs. you're, its vs it's, than vs. then, etc.).
