Author Interview - (Mehdi Toozhy) (Keys to Success At School and Beyond)

What inspired you to start writing, and when? I noticed many most people who start their education lack basic skills to succeed at school. They start their education
but when faced with difficulties they think they don't have talents and they give up their dream.
In most cases students don’t know how to learn, solve problem and how to deal with life challenges. It was clear to me that if they get these 7 Skills, they can be successful not only at school but life in general.  So I decided to write the book in winter 2014.  

What is your preferred genre? Science fiction.

How many books have you written?  If more than one, are any a series…or trilogy?
I a Scientific paper about vibration in Oxford University.

Tell us a little about your book. This book is the essence of ten years of studies at three international universities. Upon entering the Danish Technical University, I began to search for techniques to improve how I learned. I always looked for students in their final semester and asked for their feedback and notes. I studied these notes carefully and managed to build a knowledge base that I put into practice in my own studies. I compiled these many years’ worth of notes and observations, and it resulted in the production of this book. It is not easy to study. I have seen many students give up on their dreams because they felt overwhelmed and lonely.
I decided to write this book to encourage those who feel they can’t continue because they fear they lack the talent to succeed.
