About this talk

Future of Education with Cal Newport, author of How to Be a High School Superstar: A Revolutionary Plan to Get into College by Standing Out (Without Burning Out). For three years Cal interviewed what he calls "relaxed superstars:" students who live relaxed and happy high school lives and who get admitted to the colleges of their choice. He brings a unique perspective to the "student success" literature, by recommending that students who want to do well should 1) "underschedule" themselves so they have free time for exploring, 2) master one serious interest, and 3) pursue accomplishments that are "hard to explain, not hard to do." "Disguised as a peppy college-admission guide, Newport's book is actually a profound, life-affirming manifesto for ambitious high school students. Forego the sleepless and cynical path to college acceptance. Instead, blaze your trail to the Ivy League by living a full life and immersing yourself in things that matter. Relax. Find meaning. Be you." -- David Shenk, author of The Genius in All of Us
