Synopsis

  1. Finally, every student has access to the advantages needed to succeed in school and in life!
     
  2. Homes and schools, parents and guidance counselors now have the tools to help children and students master the education process.
     
  • Educator Wyne Ince shows how disinterested teens can become good students and how good students can become great ones. A guide to researching careers, setting goals and cultivating strong study habits, the book lays out for students the practical steps they need to take to achieve academic success.
     
  • Keeping things light and moving, “The Student’s Advantage” reads like a down-to-earth guide from a successful, older adult who has been down the same path and learned from his mistakes. The book doesn’t sugarcoat the hard work it takes to thrive in school. In no uncertain terms, however, it lets students understand that they are entering a workforce in a weak economy faced with global competition.  They need to understand that bolstering their education levels is critical to maintaining the same quality of life their parents enjoyed.
     
  • It tackles the illusion of “not being smart enough” that holds too many students back from reaching their full potential. Ince reveals the habits of high-achieving students, which often has less to do with raw intelligence and more with holding steady to a daily habit of study practices. It also shows students how to research careers by interviewing experts and visiting workplaces and businesses. 
     
  • Direct and to the point, “The Student’s Advantage” provides solid strategies for advancing in school and life. It shows students how to develop their full potential while disproving the notion that school success is simply about “book smarts.” With a companion 80-minute DVD that highlights the book’s message, Ince exemplifies how hard work, effort and diligent organization rule the day. Readers can also receive a free copy of the parents’ guide at www.themotivators.net. This guide presents an overview of the book and will help parents’ assist their children when using the book and make the best of it.
