If you are a high school student who prefers to have really rich experiences vs very standard ones. If you are someone looking for a school that will REALLY teach you how to think vs one that will give you a degree with a big name while you are lost among a see of faces and numbers, I highly recommend this book. Unfortunately for me I found the book to late to take advantage of most of the advice it gives, I think had I known about it in high school it could have provided valuable insight. Strongly recommended.
