Format: Paperback
Before writing this review, I read another posting that said that this book is a mere compilation of many different books. To an extent, I will have to agree with that. What I would add, however, is that this book is unique because it is written BY students FOR students. Even though some of their ideas might have been taken from other books, the authors have adapted those ideas and tailored them to a student's perspective and have drawn from their own personal experiences. In my opinion, there are definitely a lot of great books out there but if you do not have the time to invest into reading all of those books or do not know where to start , then start with this book. Written in an easy-to-read and well-organized manner with a lot of great inserts of quotes and comics this is a light and entertaining read that I would most definitely recommend for ANY highschool and/or college students.

Apart from your first house or first car, your college education will probably be one the biggest investments you will have to make in your life. Maximize your benefit from this investment by making the most out of it. Do that by READING this book.

A couple of months ago I met Andrew Hewitt, one of authors of this book, during a '"PassionPuzzle' " workshop that he facilitated at the University of Toronto. Andrew is a recent graduate himself and has a lot of first-hand experience and insights regarding some of the common concerns faced by students in college. At the age of 22 (which is one year old than I am), his success story inspired me to read his book.

This book is an incredible life changer! In my first year of university, I simply went to class and focused on studying; however, after reading your book, my whole life changed. I got much more involved in extra curricular activities, and even landed a summer job with an accounting firm. I learned so much more, and met more people; I would say I got at least 10x out of my second year of university than my first! All it took was reading the book and the applying the simple concepts. This book is fantastic for any students!

motivational and inspirational throughout!! I picked up the book and couldn't put it down. Despite things that had to be done, I finished the book in less than a 24 hour period! The book is easy to read,entertaining, and helps you approach things with the right attitude! It helps you focus on taking advantage of opportunities! It helps you focus

on your goals and dreams and helps you feel that anything is possible!!! It focuses on finding your passion and figuring out how to get the future you desire! It's great for someone going to University/College or someone who has just graduated! It's definitely worth reading!

I honestly believe that it is a sin for any college/university student to not own or have read a copy of The Power of Focus for College Students. The message that Luc d'Abadie and Andrew Hewitt have developed is strong and motivating. If students take action and put their message into practice it will lead to an enriching and successful college/university career.
The Power of Focus for College Students truly has the power to create a major momentum shift in the way students approach their college/university career.
I highly recommend that you pick up a copy today, it will not disappoint.
