Yes, col­lege might be the most expen­sive scam of your life to date, a trap that will suck your time, your enthu­si­asm and your mon­ey. But if you take an hour to see it clear­ly, col­lege is actu­al­ly an extra­or­di­nary oppor­tu­ni­ty to become the per­son you’d like to be. Kyle Winey is an eager tour guide on this urgent jour­ney from here to there.”

Kyle has applied the 80/20 prin­ci­ple – how to get more with less effort – to col­lege suc­cess, and I take my hat off to him: I couldn’t have done it near­ly as well. I believe this book will intro­duce a whole new gen­er­a­tion around the world to the mag­ic insights of 80/20 – enjoy­ing at least eighty per­cent of results from less than twen­ty per­cent of hard work. ”

Kyle Winey offers great advice in this time­ly book. Read it before you or your child blows hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars on a “cer­tifi­cate of seat time served.” Cre­ate your own cer­tifi­cate of mas­tery, instead!”
