Publisher's Summary

Tens of millions of Americans owe a combined $1.5 trillion in debt for student loans. Much of this staggering expense has been unnecessary. Attending college is more of a tradition - a cultural rite of passage - than a necessary step toward a successful career, thus not justifying its steep cost.

As countless entrepreneurs and creative hustlers have shown, there is a path to success outside institutions of so-called higher learning. Allow us to show you the way.

Filled with practical advice and action steps for teenagers and young adults, Skip College is a must-listen for those looking to launch their career.

Interesting perspective, wrong narrator

Great content, horrible choice in narrator who seemed to have zero interest in the content. I would love to hear the author read this as his tone and delivery may help convey more of the he intended message.

Engaging Material, Lackluster Reader

Most of the essays are excellent, nuanced looks at the student's current situation, and meets the target audience where they are. However, the reader's tone did not quite match the gravity of much of the content. Her voice befits a reading to elementary-aged kids, but not to educators or the types of students who would be listening to this book.

Insightful and confirming!!

I read this as a 42 year old mom of teens and appreciated it not only for guiding my teens but for myself! Well written and full of valuable info presented in a way that kept me reading. Loved it!!

Painfully off topic at times

The advice about how blue collar jobs are worthy of dignity is all good. However the hero worship of Jordan Peterson and Ann Coutler nearly had me wondering if this was the point -- hiding a screed promoting people who are controversial now and whom I believe history will not treat kindly was distracting to the message.
