If you are sharing these stories with young readers, you may want to read the first story aloud. This proved helpful to my son, who initially had a little trouble "getting into" the rhythm of the narrative. After "The Solitary Cyclist," however, he was happily on his own. He is now tackling a two-volume collection of Doyle's mysteries.
how to be a good student. I recommend this book
and one more book: SURVEY OF 300 A+ STUDENTS.
You'll stay at the top of your classes with these two books.
The book is a revised version of an old study guide available to freshmen at the School of Business in the University of Chicago, and it covers an enormous amount of ground in its 55 pages. As advertised, the advice is gimmick free, stressing the need for the student's motivation, which should come from some larger goal for the student's life.
Despite its common sense approach, How to Study offers nuggets of solid information and tips in each chapter, such as writing down distractions before studying to free them from your mind, the proper uses of memorization, and test-taking strategies.
There are no miracles in this book, only basic information on how to go about studying, getting the most out of reading material, listening to a lecture, studying for an exam, and a constant insistence on active learning, all presented in a brief, no-nonsense manner. There are few books that offer this much good information for this price.

Rubenstein has a very flowing, easy-to-read writing style and includes details that made me feel like I actually met him and the people he knew. Like all great autobiographies that I read, this one made me want to know what happened to some of the people he met.
I was **very** disappointed when I finished the book and yearned for more information about his life. It was only when I came across the title on Amazon.com that I found he wrote another autobiography. I can't wait to buy it.
I first read the book when I was in college in about 1974. I couldn't put the book down. At the time Rubenstein was the greatest in my mind. I later bought a copy of the book at a used book store in Sonoma Valley.
