About the Author:

Douglas Barry attends Tulane University. He wrote, Wisdom for a Young CEO, when he was 14-years old.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up–Not just another book of inspiring quotes for high school graduates, this one personalizes and pens the insecurities, fears, anticipation, excitement, and enthusiasm of a soon-to-be freshman at Tulane University. Not afraid to ask for advice, Barry went straight to the top by writing to George W. Bush, the Dalai Lama, John Kerry, Bill Gates, and even Kermit the Frog. Most of the advice given is familiar, yet the sources from which it comes are successful, proven men and women of the world. Included are excerpts from a graduation speech given by Bono at the University of Pennsylvania, letters from Bob Dole and Kenny Rogers, and quotes from President Lyndon B. Johnson and Maya Angelou about growing up, coping with change, and catapulting toward the future. This introspective young man's honesty about his uncertainty and fear of the unknown will resonate with all new or soon-to-be graduates. An index helps locate quotes by particular individuals.–Julie Webb, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY
