Publisher's Summary

The antidote to those cotton-candy platitudes that are all too familiar to anyone who’s ever worn a mortarboard, Wheelan’s 10 head-turning aphorisms - backed up by a PhD in public policy and extensive social science research - set the record straight. Readers everywhere agreed, turning a Dartmouth Class Day speech that had gone viral into a best-selling book.

Whether praising the time “wasted” in fraternity basements; mentioning that, frankly, the worst days of your life still lie ahead; or simply asking that graduates avoid wreaking the kind of havoc that others before them have, Wheelan softens his candid conclusions with good-natured charm and tales of unconventional success. With cartoons sprinkled throughout to keep things light, this volume makes a perfect gift for graduates of all ages.

    "Thought provoking message"

    I listened to it again with my husband and son during a road trip. The book is not too long and has a great message.

    "Wish I had someone tell me all of these things"

    Good narration. I wanted someone to tell me all of these things years ago. However, lots of insight and I feel that I can use the information as I am at a turning point in my career.
