Wisdom for a High School Graduate by Douglas Barry
Book DescriptionHere, 18-year-old Douglas Barry shares advice he received from actors, athletes, astronauts, teachers, talk-show hosts and more! One day, not long after he left high school, Douglas Barry stared his future in the face. He was about to leave home, to move away from his friends and family, and begin the most important years of his life. Would he ever make new friends? Would he and his girlfriend drift apart? Did he have what it takes to succeed? Every school-leaver has these questions, but Barry isn't your average school-leaver. Five years earlier, this aspiring businessman wrote to 150 CEOs, asking them how they'd got where they are. The response was overwhelming, and the result was the best-selling "Wisdom for a Young CEO". Following the same model, Barry wrote to over 100 accomplished individuals, including astronauts, politicians and actors, asking them to share their college experiences. The letters he received are a touching, funny, inspiring guide to tackling higher education head-on.
