Goodbye to Study Trouble!

Goodbye to Study Trouble!

While most study books are filled with nothing but charts, numbers, long reading sections, and endless practice tests, Goodbye to Study Trouble! is completely different!

This one-of-a-kind study advice book for teens is based upon a blog written by two university students about their own experiences studying. Upon opening this book, complete with doodles in the margins, readers feel as though they are looking through their friend’s notes rather than reading an advice book.

Split into six sections, Goodbye to Study Trouble! tackles teens worries about studying, study methods, problems at school, psychological troubles, day-to-day life problems, and love. Rather than providing a one-size-fits-all solution to each problem, the authors instead present teens with a variety of possible solutions, encouraging them to think creatively and find ways of dealing with life that suits them best.

Reader feedback

“I’m a 2nd year high school student from Ehime. You guys are so great!! I was really inspired when I read about you in the paper!

I always say I’m going to study hard, but I always end up doing nothing…you helped me reflect about this problem lol.” (Miku, 2nd year high school student)

“I’m studying for university entrance exams now, and I had meant to spend more time than anyone else studying, but...none of my effort ever showed in my test scores and I was really sad about it :( Now I think maybe I was just studying the wrong way. After reading your blog I feel like I need to study properly. I wish I had found this sooner!!” (Saku, 3rd year high school student)
