Yes, that’s right, we’ve transformed our bestselling study book into an audio book – courtesy of Simon Whistler, a professional recording artist who volunteered to make this happen because he saw the huge value for students and professionals who want to make the most of their time.
There is nothing better than using otherwise ‘wasted’ down time to listen to personal development audio programs or books.
Most people have 10 to 20 hours every week to listen to audio recordings in their car or on their iPod while commuting to and from work or school.

Did You Know?
Using your commuting time to listen to educational audio programs is the equivalent of a full credit college or university course!
Did You Know?
Listening to an audio book or program on the same subject as a book you’ve read can double your memory retention and increase your ability to recall information?
Did You Know?
That whilst reading a book triggers your visual learning style, an audio book or recording stimulates your auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles?
Audio books stimulate BOTH your auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles because as you hear the voice speaking, his or her voice resonates within you, creating the sensations that kinaesthetic learners need. This is true whether you listen in the car (loud enough to drown out distracting noises) or with headphones.
Did You Know?
By listening to an audio book or program, you trigger your Reticular Activation System* with additional stimuli so that it seeks out more options to assist you in your quest – in this case, to help you get better grades with less effort.
The Benefits of Audio Books
Audio books are an increasingly popular alternative to physical books with lots of unexpected benefits. Audio books have something extra when compared to their printed counterparts. They were initially created as ancillary learning tools for people with visual, mental or other learning difficulties.
For example, people who are blind or have the elderly who have vision related challenges.
Audio books are now an increasingly popular accelerated learning tool for super-achiever students who want that extra edge.
Some of the benefits of audio books for students are:
- Audio books are far more convenient than normal books since you can buy and download them ‘instantly’.
- The benefit of the spoken word is that a lot more can be expressed verballyt than through writing. I'm sure you'll agree from your own experience that it's a much more enjoyable and a richer experience, to talk to someone by phone or Skype than it is to email or even chat online.
- Audio books let you multitask - Just put them on while at home doing chores, (washing dishes, cleaning your room) in your car, on the bus or while walking to and from work and/or school.
- Audio books have benefits for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) type personalities - A lot of people find it hard to concentrate on one thing for long periods of time. If you struggle with focusing, you can benefit from audio books since it often is ‘easier’ than sitting down and reading a book. Listening to an audio book while walking, running or doing chores can make it possible for you to enjoy books because you’re doing something else at the same time.
- Audio books have the benefit of being relaxing. You don't need to focus on the printed words to retain the information from an audio book – you just need to let it enter your mind passively. You can meditate or lie down while listening to an audio book if the subject matter is a little more challenging. Some people use an audio book as a sleeping aid to subconsciously absorb the information – but don’t let this replace your active learning!
- Audio books can help you to learn subjects and topics that might be above your reading level.
- Listening to audio books helps you develop good interpretive reading skills. Hearing a book read on audio helps you to see how the words on the page can come alive in a fluid, expressive way. It helps you focus on the sounds of words read without interruption and provides a model of fluent reading.
- Audio books teach you critical listening skills as well. It’s no surprise that most people could benefit from having better listening skills. With an improved listening ability, you’ll get more from your lectures and classes in school.
- Audio books gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself to new genres, topics and subjects that you might not otherwise consider.
- With an audio book, if you listen to it in the car or via a speaker system, multiple people can listen together while commuting to sporting events, music lessons, or on vacations.
- Experts in the educational sector agree that audio books in the classroom go a long way to help students who are just beginning to read and those who have difficulty with reading.
- Audio books improve comprehension skills – it’s one thing to simply listen, but quite another to comprehend what is being said. If someone hears something, rather than just reading it, they show more comprehension when being tested. While listening they have a greater tendency to connect to the words and relate them to a life experience. This enhances comprehension and the ability to recall important information.
- With audio books, you’ll improve word recognition skills - by seeing it written and hearing it, this skill once again develops at a faster pace. When you apply more than one sense while learning a new skill, you are more likely to maintain that skill.
- With audio books, you can learn the proper pronunciation of words. We all know more words than we use in our everyday conversations because we generally can understand context while reading, however, with the correct pronunciation we will be more likely to use these new words in our verbal conversations. This means we will expand our active vocabulary.

* The Reticular Activation System (RAS) is a subconscious part of your brain that tracks what you focus on and helps you to find what you’re ‘looking for’. For example, if you focus on HOW you learn, your RAS will start to notice that you retain more information when you study early in the morning OR later in the evening. Your RAS might zero in on PURPLE and BLUE as the preferred highlight colour or it might magically ‘find’ the reference book you need when surfing the Internet or browsing the library shelves.
Using your RAS is one of the dozens of strategies you’ll learn about when you listen to the audio book version of Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort.
