I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ready, Study, Go!. There is tremendous positive energy as the book unfolds page after page. It explores the multiple connectivities that are there within us and helps us understand how we can learn effectively and efficiently, and possibly even live better. As I read the book, many questions surfaced, and the answers emerged as if the authors were listening to my questions and answering them. The illustrations are cheerful and bring clarity to the matter. It is a fantastic, unputdownable book, and I would heartily recommend it to be read by absolutely everyone!

How did you prepare for JEE? How many hours did you study? Can you give me some tips on how to go about JEE preparation? These are some of the questions I have been asked multiple times. Big thanks to Bawa and Dinesh for Ready, Study, Go!. This wonderful book answers all these questions and much more in simple, yet profound and amazingly fun ways.

A very relatable and readable book for students of all ages by two achievers I know well! Bawa and Dinesh break down mastering the art of studying, and show how achieving the grades one has always dreamed of can become a reality. I would recommend Ready, Study, Go! to my nieces and all students at all levels, and am personally empowered to be armed with it at the start of my own daughter's academic life!.

One thing that I did not appreciate about Ready, Study, Go! is the fact that it was released only after I had finished my regular academics. I realised how much more I could have achieved by studying more effectively. This book is a treasure if students want to plan meticulously, think rationally and act decisively in working towards their curriculum. Written in a frank, conversational style, that is the hallmark of Bawa and Dinesh, this book is mandatory reading, not only for youngsters still studying but also for all of us who are students of life. Chapters on meditation, Surya namaskars, exercise and on mind maps would keep reminding me in the future on how to plan diligently and accomplish more in the future." A big thank you for coming up with this long overdue book.

My love for studies came back after reading Ready, Study, Go!. The brain hacks covered in the book have helped me to learn at a much faster speed as compared to earlier. I can study effectively for longer stretches, sometimes exceeding 5-6 hours. The technique of Mind Mapping I learned from the book has become an indispensable part of my work.

I would highly recommend the book Ready, Study, Go! by Bawa and Dinesh to everyone, no matter what stage they are in life. We are human beings, and we are always learning. I for one, love learning new stuff. I hold a few degrees now - in acting, medicine, fashion entrepreneurship and film directing, and this book covers everything I could wish it to have, to be able to with much less effort, learn any of those things. So far, I had never come across a really good book detailing the process of learning. Read Study Go! is exactly that. It has so much content, all of it presented in such a crisp, articulate and enjoyable style. Not only does it teach you how to study any subject; it has tips and techniques to enhance your general health and lifestyle - This creates clarity in your mind, leading to more productive and efficient ways of getting your work done.

It is said that learning should be a joyous activity. It enriches one with new knowledge and ways of being and succeeding in the world. Vidya Sarvatra Bhushanam goes the Sanskrit proverb. Since time immemorial, education has always been seen as the true wealth which one carries everywhere. In todays hyper-competitive world, formal education systems tend to focus on learning through rote and memory and often fail at developing the students true potential. I have seen many students who graduate with formal degrees, have performed well in academics, but lack analytical and practical life skills and are unable to deal with problems and failures effectively. Ready, Study, Go! brings a fresh perspective on learning, the purpose of education and answers very poignant questions being posed by students and educators everywhere. An immensely readable book, the authors share insights from their decades-long experience of working with students. Khurshed and Dinesh have very beautifully woven together insights on all the aspects of an individual that require nourishment during student life. I highly recommend this book for all students and parents who are seeking to change the paradigm of learning and make it a truly enjoyable activity.

The book breaks the general conception of studying being an isolated activity and explains how it has so many facets and connections with all other aspects of life. It changes the whole idea of studying from being mundane, boring and dreadful to being exciting, fun and almost sacred. A must read for students, professionals, businesspeople and anyone who has had a complicated relationship with studies.

Flipping through Ready, Study, Go!, my initial reaction was Wow! Such a lovely book, I wish I had the opportunity to read such book while I was giving exams in my school/college life. However, after reading more and more pages at some point, I felt like Wait a minute, this is useful for everyone! This is beneficial for me right now. I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with both authors and learned a lot of things. I always loved the simplicity in their way of explaining intricate things of life hence its not a surprise for me to see the way authors revealed many intriguing details with crystal clear explanations in this book. The simplicity of the book makes the reading journey very enjoyable. There are chapters on health and food habits, developing the subconscious mind and intuition, party tips(!), exercise, even some simple, delicious recipes. There is a lot covered in this book, all dished out with a generous sprinkling of laughter. Get the book, read it, and you will be Ready Study Go!!

This book provides awesome practical tips to keep the mind fresh and focused. It helps bring about a change in the way one approaches studying. The methodologies discussed in the book have the potential of making the process of learning enjoyable and exciting.
CEO, Pratima Arts, India
To limit this book to just "Study" is misleading It is about "Using your Brain" and using it well - something that anyone with a brain would want to learn. An invaluable tool on how the brain ticks, what keeps it going fast and what slows it down. A must for professionals - at some point, we all hit a plateau in our thinking - we get stuck in repetitive thinking and doing styles. This book will help you pole-vault those plateaus. Compelling content, great writing style, Read it and make sure people around you read it too.

I would urge all students, teachers and parents to have this as a must read.

Ready, Study, Go! is the best book Ive ever read. Each chapter is good but I liked No Job ?So What? the most. It is more beneficial for the youngsters. I was working in a college and I have seen how much students struggle to get a job. This is best book to gift someone. I personally recommend everyone to read this book.

Ready, Study, Go! revolves around how studies and learning new thing is an ongoing process and it can be made juicy if the intention is clear in mind.

Every aspect of life is touched which has a direct or indirect impact on ones learning . Various concentration techniques and tools are also mentioned to make learning very interesting .

I have read lot of books and heard podcasts of Tony Buzan on Mind Mapping. But the simplicity with which this book explains is marvellous. No beating around the bush and hits the bulls eye. Knowing so many facets of the brain makes now learning a pleasure. I'm grateful to Bawa and Dinesh for writing this book.

Ready, Study, Go! had a great impact on my life. I never liked History subject. After reading this book History is no more boring for me, It's an expression of happiness and craziness. Using the mindmap technique, I made a chart for History 2 months ago and viewed just once one night before exam day. It easily fetched me a question worth 2 marks in my prelims exam where every mark counts so much! I didn't need to put any strain on my memory! I wish I had done it for more, nevertheless that's the way to go now!

Ready, Study, Go! is very special book for me because this is the first book I read completely and even read some chapters twice. Every topic is very interesting. While reading this book many of my questions got answered.This book cleared many of my doubts. It gave me a new inspiration to work. All facts are so amazing. I watch videos of Bawa & Dinesh on YouTube which are so informative. I'm grateful to both of them to write this book and to change my life . I'm eagerly waiting for them to write their next book.
