Books for Academic Excellence

Are you looking for books to help you or your student achieve academic excellence? I recently came across this book list curated by Mark Skoskiewicz, founder of MyGuru, that will help you understand the nature of talent, the science of learning, and the psychology of success:

The page says that these books helped shape the way Mark and his company think about helping students achieve academic excellence. This says a lot to me about the importance of these books because 1) the company is pretty successful, and 2) Mark has written his own book about how to Plan, Prepare, and Perform.
