9780762423408: Wisdom For A High School Grad

Following his hit title Wisdom for a Young CEO, 18-year-old author Douglas Barry shares advice he received from more than 200 diverse respondents to the letter he sent out after his high school graduation, in which he asked, “What should I get out of college?” Those who wrote back to him—including George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John F. Kerry, Regis Philbin, Ken Burns (documentarist), Harley Jane Kozak (author), the Dalai Lama, John Travolta, and more—offer touching, practical, and humorous wisdom about life in college. Their advice covers making friends, finding one’s path in life, learning and understanding new subjects, striving for awards and honors, the value of traveling, living away from home for the first time, dating, socializing, and more. As a lead title for the spring graduation market, Wisdom For a High School Grad is the only compilation of original advice from contemporary leaders in a variety of fields, speaking to a universal question. With entertaining, enlightening contributions from a range of accomplished adults including athletes, educators, musicians, politicians, astronauts, bankers, and comedians, this is a book with relevance to every high-school graduate facing the challenges that come with college life.
