Three Ways to Help Spread the WordSeptember 16th, 2009 · 8 comments
Update: Based on a reader suggestion, I want to sweeten the deal here. E-mail me your stories of spreading the word. I’ll choose the student who I think did the most to disseminate our philosophy, and award him or her a signed copy of the rare “yellow version” of the red book (an early edition of the red book that featured a gaudy yellow cover).
Spread the Word
The first month of a new semester is the perfect time to motivate students to overhaul their study habits. With this in mind, I want to humbly ask you to consider helping me spread the word to the stressed out, unhappy, pseudo-workers among you.
Here are three specific ways you can help…
- Leave an Honest Review on Amazon.
Students take Amazon reviews seriously when considering book purchases. If you had a good experience with my books, please consider leaving an honest review (click here for the red book and here for the yellow book). The most useful reviews tend to include specific details about how the book helped.
- Mention the Books to Your Academic Skills Center.
Several students have reported mentioning the books to their academic skills center on campus. In many cases, the centers subsequently started recommending the books to students who are struggling. This is a great way to impact a lot of your classmates.
- Buy a Copy for a Friend.
Do you have a friend who seems overwhelmed by college? Buy him a copy of the red or yellow book. I suggest writing my e-mail address on the inside cover and letting him know that he can always e-mail me with questions about applying the advice to his situation.
If the Study Hacks philosophy of doing less, doing better, and knowing why has improved your life, please consider taking a few moments to spread those same benefits to others.
