Bob Duffin teaches in Mesa, Arizona. In April of this year he posted the following review of Good Habits, Good Students under the heading, “Advice that can really work”:
I teach mathematics in middle school and am always looking for high quality reference material to help my students develop better academic and personal habits. “Good Habits, Good Students” is full of good, practical advice that students understand and relate to. This year I recommended it to all of my classes. The students who read the book made favorable comments and said it would be very helpful in school and in life. There is no better reference than that.
In May another Amazon reviewer who goes by the name “BookMaven” titled his or her review, “Every 9th grade student and parent should read this book!”:
This is a great book for both students and parents. Students should use this book to check themselves at the start of high school. Too often, students find themselves in the 11th grade attempting to undo the mistakes of the first two years of high school. Read this book going into high school and you will be in a good position for starting off on the right track. Read it earlier and you will be all the better off.
Bob and BookMaven, I’m so glad that you and your students have found the book to be useful, and grateful to you for spreading the word. If you see this, please drop me an email message. Thanks!
