BEYOND MAJORS AND G.P.A. by Aaron Scott Robertson

A Real Philosophy for College and the World Ahead
Genre: Education
Rating: Fair
ISBN: 0595431860, $9.95, 60 pp.

This little book contains nine chapters: misconceptions about your major, positive attitude, set your pace, knowledge is power, leaders are made, G.P.A, flip-flopping, invest early, and endless possibilities.

It reads like an essay assignment and really has nothing new or particularly significant to say in its attempt to be inspirational. I believe the author just wanted to write a book, set himself the challenge, and this is the result.

It is well organized and edited; however, I consider the content trite and would not recommend it to an intelligent college student.
