Publisher's Summary

Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us whether or not we are making the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. That is, until now.

As executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig guides her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world, providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is an entrepreneur, neuroscientist, and popular teacher, and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students' - provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor.

These pages are filled with fascinating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving amazing success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our highest potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible, how to recover from failure, and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise.

What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark on the world.

    "Not worth it for most"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Really weak content for most people. Unless you are a teenager I am not sure how you would benefit from this work.


    Any additional comments?

    It is not worth the money.

    "Great first chapter. Stop there"
    What disappointed you about What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20?

    The first chapter had some interesting allegories that are both inspiring and thought provoking, then Ms Seelig seems to run out of steam.

    At one point she actually brags that she is not qualified to write a book but is doing it anyways.
