The Daniel Pink book is excellent, I highly recommend it! My oldest likes the Manga Guide to Physics though it's a bit over her head right now.

I recently read the Cal Newport book, How to be a High School Superstar. You may also like another of his books called How to Become a Straight-A Student. It is geared towards college students, but has some organizational tips that I wish I had thought of.

Also, he has a blog called Study Hacks that has some interesting reading.
