In the past, seeking higher education was the best way to give yourself a chance to live a successful and fulfilling life. But over the years, as tuition costs have risen substantially and most college graduates don't end up working in the same fields they major in, higher education has lost some of its appeal. So how do aspiring college or university students prepare to extract the best out of their college experience for the investment of time, money, and emotional energy? In Zen and the Art of Navigating College, Peter Klein objectively evaluates the college experience. He also offers valuable in-depth insights to help students successfully navigate college's social and academic aspects.
Peter Klein cautions readers to be wary of a section of college professors he likens to highly specialized hedgehogs who struggle to comprehend issues outside their specific niches. With Zen and the Art of Navigating College, you will learn about the disparity between the promise of college and the jobs realized, the need for assessing and developing soft skills, ways to help you overcome the hidden hazards that come along in the journey, and much more. A college education is no guarantee of a successful career or even a job in your preferred field. That's why this is a relevant book for our times. I found it very educational and inspiring, and I recommend it to aspiring college applicants and students.
