Aidan Harvey-Craig has brought his experience of working in psychology and education to produce this highly informative and thought provoking book. It is packed with evidenced-based life hacks, provided in a refreshing format. I may not be a student, but I've taken away many life hacks from the book that I'm now using. Highly recommended! -- Kirsty R. Lowe, Consultant Clinical and Forensic Psychologist. UK
