It's no secret that university doesn't prepare students for the real world. Large debts and mass unemployment are causing potential students to wonder if there's a better way to 'make it' in today's marketplace. Dale Stephens, the founder of the unCollege movement, speaks to a new culture of 'hackademics' who think degrees are antiquated. Stephens shows how he and dozens of others have hacked their education. This is a handbook for the new order, packed with practical tips to succeed. Stephens helps readers thrive by preparing them with the skills that schools aren't teaching.
