New York Times Best Selling Author, William Deresiewicz takes a sharp look at the high-pressure conveyor belt that begins with parents and counselors who demand perfect grades and culminates in the skewed applications Deresiewicz saw firsthand as a member of Yale’s admissions committee. He explains how college should be a time for self-discovery, when students can establish their own values and measures of success, so they can forge their own path. He addresses parents, students, educators, and anyone who's interested in the direction of American society—featuring stories from real students and graduates he has corresponded with over the years—candidly exposing where the system is broken and clearly presenting solutions.
