Get this book, especially if you are a high school or college student or you are a parent of a student. This book explains why there is an education bubble (similar to the housing bubble) and it will give you the tools necessary to start teaching yourself life skills such as finding mentors, networking, sales, branding yourself, and much more. It trains you to have an entrepreneur’s mindset instead of an employee’s mindset.
From the product page on Amazon:
The Myth: If you get into a good college, study hard, and graduate with excellent grades, you will be pretty much set for a successful career.
The Reality: The biggest thing you won’t learn in college is how to succeed professionally.
I have been raving about this book to my friends. If you don’t believe me (it hit #63 in the books category on Amazon at one point), you can download the intro and first chapter for FREE here and check it out for yourself.
I have also posted several quotations from the book on my blog here.
This book could seriously change your life.
