Press reviews for: 18 Wellbeing Hacks for Students

Isaac, Student, University of Manchester

This book simply explains what the hack is, how to put it into day-to-day life and the psychology that explains why it works.

Gilda Scarfe, CEO and founder of Positive Ed Ltd, International Speaker

A must read for anyone who wants to learn to be accountable for their own success and wellbeing.

Kirsty R. Lowe, Consultant Clinical and Forensic Psychologist. UK

Aidan Harvey-Craig has brought his experience of working in psychology and education to produce this highly informative and thought provoking book. It is packed with evidenced-based life hacks, provided in a refreshing format. I may not be a student, but I've taken away many life hacks from the book that I'm now using. Highly recommended!

Adrian Bethune, award-winning author and wellbeing advisor

This is my kind of book! It's evidence-based, easy to read and so practical. This book will prove so useful to students. A book that will help them understand themselves and the people around them better, as well as equipping them with the tools they need to thrive.
