Gives another perspective on what to major in. Shows how colleges lie and how manipulate you.
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.
