It's no secret that university doesn't prepare students for the real world. Large debts and mass unemployment are causing potential students to wonder if there's a better way to 'make it' in today's marketplace. Dale Stephens, the founder of the unCollege movement, speaks to a new culture of 'hackademics' who think degrees are antiquated. Stephens shows how he and dozens of others have hacked their education. This is a handbook for the new order, packed with practical tips to succeed. Stephens helps readers thrive by preparing them with the skills that schools aren't teaching.

As a 'teacher' with an unschooler myself, I was thrilled to read this book from a fellow unschooler. This book is not only informative about hacking an education, it's about hacking pretty much every closed door a young person might encounter at the start of being an adult. The author gives assignments which are not only creative, but they really boost confidence and develop skills.
