Format: Paperback
This is a good book for mapping out all of your plans and goals in life - it has motivation, inspiration and also some tools for achoieving what you want. It doesn't leave out the spiritual part of life either which is rather nice - a different appraoch to personal development I have to say. A good planner to go along with this is the VISION `Life Diary 2009', it's a very good inspirational planner for the year ahead. The two of these together would kick the year off right!

This was on the reading list for my Uni course and when it arrived I was a bit hesitant to think that I will ever use it, as I am a mature student it reminded me of school text books. I have however used it for one of my essays and out of many books found it to be more useful that others.
I think that students just coming out of school or maybe even in college would appreciate the work book format more than I did as they can learn about developing their learning and motivations to learn through using this book.

This book is very good for somebody who it out of Uni, written in the same way as lecture material. However, this is not what I needed and therefore didn't answer all my questions and help me with writing personal development plan.

Excellent book, (not just for the young!!) - Stella Cottrell is an amazing and insightful author. Fun Book, but very relevant. The Palgrave Study Skills range is synonymous with academic success. These books, and this author in particular, know their stuff. Very, very good - give it a try and you will not put the book down without having gained useful tips and advice to help in your studies and personal development. I am using this for undergrad study but it is soon to be passed to one of my children currently studying for A/AS levels.
