Book review – The Brain Box by David Hogson and Tim Benton


I really really love this book and highly recommend it for anyone still studying for something! It’s full to the brim of hints,tips and great strategies for revising and writing essays/reports. It focuses more on self-discovery revolving around your attitude towards work. I would compare this book to curing a disease rather than curing the symptoms of a disease (like a true medical sciences graduate). It tackles the important aspects of studying like your mentality and motivation rather than feeding you empty techniques like I have seen in other study books.

Moreover, there are still useful tips like the revision timetable planner that I found particularly helpful and interesting ways to make revision more memorable eg. Using music.

What’s best about this book is I have met one of the authors at an educational event and he was an inspiration to get motivated to teach as well as learn. He even managed to teach us a random list of Grammy award winning films using one of the techniques. I can still remember quite a few… Silence of the lambs… Dances with Wolves… Forrest Gump… Gladiator… I haven’t seen half of those!

It’s £9 on Amazon for 196 pages that may revolutionise your life.
