9780986011900: Better Than College: How to Build a Successful Life Without a Four-Year Degree

Do you need college in order to be taken seriously and earn a real living? Conventional wisdom says yes. But true success relies upon self-knowledge and entrepreneurship: two qualities that you can obtain effectively and inexpensively without traditional college.

Better Than College provides the step-by-step guidance and inspiration necessary to design your own higher education. This book teaches you how to find community, stay on track, and get hired or start your own venture, all without a four-year degree. Curious college students will learn to think clearly about their motivations, plan a gap year, or navigate life after school. And Better Than College will show parents how self-directed learning can lead to a lifetime of achievement no expensive institution required.

From the Author :

  Why I Wrote Better Than College The default 4-year college path is under attack, and rightly so. What most critics recognize is that:

  • college is overpriced, 
  • college no longer guarantees economic success
  • college doesn't necessarily offer a rigorous learning experience
But what we seldom hear are concrete suggestions for what a bright young adult might do with her time instead of going to college. Even if the above arguments are correct, what is a young person to do if there are no viable alternatives to college? That's why I wrote Better Than College. Drawing from my years of involvement in the world of unschooling and interviews with dozens of young people who consciously made the decision to skip (or leave) college, I constructed a how-to guide for giving yourself a higher education without four-year college. My book doesn't focus on the Gates' and Zuckerbergs who made huge amounts of money without a college degree; for that, take a look at Michael Ellsberg's excellent book The Education of Millionaires. Instead, I focus on how a young person can become financially independent, self-employed (or very happily employed), well-rounded, and well-connected without the grace of a college institution.  You don't have to be a young genius to put my principles and concrete advice into action. Rather, this book is for any young adult who wants to define her own version of success and isn't satisfied to wait four years (and take on tens of thousands of dollars in debt) to do so.
