Read in August, 2008

If you read the bibliography of this book you will never have to go to college. Which is the point of the book. (It is free for college freshman and all 18 years olds, with ID). Having read this book, I feel like I am ready to go to college, even though I already have, and even though, like one of the panelists, " I regret it! I regret going to college!"

This is a very tenderly didactic, presumptuous, and generous concept--beautifully executed. A panel: "what do we wish we had known, what do we regret, about having gone to college?"

I loved it. This is going to plump up my reading list like nothing has in years. I am very touched by the fact that there are brilliant people who also so care about their younger selves that they are willing to speak plainly about their uncertainties, regrets, and reading lists.
