Reviews

"With remarkable insight, James Bach describes the tools, skills and mindset necessary to create your own education. If the millions of students currently sitting in class took Bach's simple advice and began creating products, projects, and organizations in the real world, unemployment could be solved practically overnight."

--Dale J. Stephens, Founder of UnCollege.com
"Bach's book is a wake-up call. I recommend it to just about anyone who wants to hear a different take on learning from what they've heard from parents and teachers."

--Earnthis.net
"James Bach has demonstrated that there are opportunities for each one of us to expand the innate capacity of our mind to learn and be creative without surrendering to the dictates of an academic establishment."
