Editorial Reviews

Years ago, I sat alone on the Rutgers University campus with a 1.9 grade point average, a copy of Gordon Green's book Getting Straight A's, and little else. Now, twenty-one years later, I can look at my diploma, which states that I graduated with highest honors. After reading his latest book, Making Your Education Work for You, I'm excited to share his ideas with my students and to put his proven methods to work in my daily life. Simply stated, Gordon Green's writing changed my life...
Over the many years I have known Gordon Green I have seen him dedicate himself selflessly to helping young Americans of every race, creed, color, class. This has been of enormous service to the country he loves...
Boy, do I wish my kids (and I) had this book when they were in school and college. Fortunately, my grandkids now will... We've found that knowledgeable, practical guidance is vital to their success. Thank you, Gordon, for supplying it!
If every student and family read this book, our national dropout problem would disappear. It tells us why education is important, and more importantly, how to succeed within the system, no matter your starting point.
Gordon Green's Making Your Education Work for You should be required reading for parents and students alike...His handbook for learning is a joy to read, a call to arms, and an inspiration.
Gordon Green has written a book that every student and parent should read. Dispensing both common sense alongside expert insight, he offers invaluable guidance on everything from study tips to summer jobs. And all of it shared in jargon-free, readable prose chock-full of telling anecdotes...
In his book, Gordon Green describes the crucial link between education and obtaining satisfying and economically rewarding work. Even more important for readers, however, is the encouragement he provides to both youth and their parents by describing an approach that will enable them to take full advantage of their opportunities to learn and to succeed.
As a student, realization of your dreams begins with the courses you take in school and the grades you receive. I used Dr. Green's study methods to realize my dreams of becoming a successful dentist, finishing first in my class in dental school, earning a fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, and receiving the equivalent of hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships in the process. I enthusiastically recommend his new book to my own children and to my patients, and I encourage the same for you to make your dreams become a reality!
