Great book... Now I need to re-read it!
The book is a must read for parents of college aged kids. Although there are no edicts, the book clearly outlines the different paths available for the young adults of today. The yield of information, which is also the premise, is that the thinking and path of the bachelor degree of the past centuries needs to be left there. This really is a new world.
