Publisher's Summary

Worthless is the single most important book young men and women can read before they attend college.

Don't lie to yourself. And certainly don't waste four years of your youth and thousands of dollars in tuition on a worthless degree. Buy this audiobook and understand why it is important you choose the right major. The book itself could be the wisest investment you ever make.

Interesting

While I enjoyed learning this author's point of view and I appreciate the many good and helpful points he makes, I wondered if he is aware that some people are not able to do STEM majors/careers no matter how much they want to and are more than willing to give it all they have. That darn bell curve! Most mere mortals fall under the bell and aren't blessed with the ability to do the high levels of math or have the much needed high-level visual spatial skills, for example that are fundamentally important in most, if not all areas of engineering. I have known people that dropped engineering because they were sinking- they were out of their league. Yes, I know some who could have done it and didn't and later wish they had. So the author is correct about some people. But not all- probably not even most. The author doesn't seem to address aptitude, and like it or not, we must live and work with that frustrating reality! I know a couple people that BARELY got through math and comp. sci. majors. They thought it was a great achievement that they hung in there. However, not surprisingly, neither are working in their respective fields. Aptitude must be realistically considered.

In general, I did enjoy and learn from this book. Thanks to the author and audible.

Very Enlightened

Wow. Very, very enlightened! Thank God I found this book BEFORE I went to college. I was struggling to figure out where and what I should do and major for but this book has helped me more than any of my teachers and guidance counselors ever did within my 4 years of high school. I'd recommend every high school student just to give it a listen. It's definitely worth it.
