I purchased the book because I was interested in the premise of self-education, but the book doesn't delve too much into that aspect. It's mostly about Saad and his minions' experiences. The book focuses more on what happened his project as opposed to how to make it happen for yourself.
I had the pleasure of meeting Victor Saad this weekend when he gave a presentation at a conference. Intrigued by his story, it was an immediate choice for me to sit down and read his book after settling into bed last night.
I'm a lover of education and this non-traditional means of getting a degree sounded fascinating.
From cover to cover, in a couple of hours, I was completely, holistically, spiritually, and crazily inspired to find away to make my dreams happen. In a world were the common is the norm, his dreams of doing something different stands out in the field of unconventionality and pure at heart.
A must read for those who love education and learning.
A must, must read for those who love to try something different.
A must, must, must read for those that dream of something that is bigger than themselves.
Throughout the book, we feel like we're traveling with Victor throughout his year, as he gives us insight into his world, the tough decisions he had to make, and his failures and successes of this groundbreaking project. It's impossible NOT to be encouraged and inspired to take a leap of your own after just a few chapters. By the time you've finished the book, you'll be taping pieces of butcher paper to your wall and sketching out your next big leap. The power that is contained in these pages, through the text, photographs, and design, are enough to get you out of your reading chair and moving through the world--a powerful accomplishment for a book of less than 200 pages.
