From the Back Cover:

A recent college graduate who spent times at three different California state-sponsored universities, Jason Goetz weighs in with a timely intellectual critique of the university mission.  Mr. Goetz, a widely-read future epic poet who speaks four languages, has studied advanced mathematics, and is widely read in the classics at the age of 22, relates his experiences as he progressed through four years and concludes that a lack of focus on fundamental ideas and ideals has led to the reward of those who are not industrious at the expense of those who are, impelling a perpetual vicious cycle.  A very engaging read.

About the Author:

Born May 16, 1988, Jason R. Goetz has early established a reputation for genius and audacity. He taught himself to read by the age of three; by sixteen was studying multivariable calculus at UCLA, and at 20 began a reading program which, by the time he was 23, made him by far the most educated man of that age in history. Witty and incisive, Mr. Goetz has shown a willingness to challenge convention--and authority--for the sake of a better world.

Mr. Goetz is currently tutoring students--you can see his website, goetzeducation.org, to see the range of topics he covers. He resides in Canoga Park, California, and is waiting on his golden princess. He promises to make her laugh when she comes.
