"Stop stressing yourself out with all those AP classes and time-consuming extra-curriculars to seem impressive! find something really interesting and devote yourself to it, then you'll be genuinely interesting!" is pretty much what Newport's saying. This book has some good advice, but I didn't find it "life-affirming" as the back cover said. Maybe because I'm not the target audience--kids who are really, really desperate for Ivy League.
