Description

The antidote to those cotton-candy platitudes that are all too familiar to anyone who's ever worn a mortarboard, Wheelan's 101 head-turning aphorisms-backed up by a PhD in public policy and extensive social science research-set the record straight. Readers everywhere agreed, turning a Dartmouth Class Day speech that had gone viral into a best-selling book. Whether praising the time "wasted" in fraternity basements; mentioning that, frankly, the worst days of your life still lie ahead; or simply asking that graduates avoid wreaking the kind of havoc that others before them have, Wheelan softens his candid conclusions with good-natured charm and tales of unconventional success. With cartoons sprinkled throughout to keep things light, this volume makes a perfect gift for graduates of all ages.show more
