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.

“A book filled with so much wisdom that I have no choice but to recommend it.” (Craig Wilson, USA Today)
Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
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.
