It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us whether or not we are making the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. That is, until now. As executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig guides her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world, providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is an entrepreneur, neuroscientist, and popular teacher, and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students—provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor. These pages are filled with fascinating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving amazing success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our highest potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible, how to recover from failure, and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark on the world.

@ Hanyi 启发性的小读物,文字浅显,道理也不深奥,就看我们能不能用到自己的生活里了。 @ 零度。领悟 改变了我两个观念,一个是积极去对待问题,把问题看做是种机会,提升自我的机会,还有一个人的名声很重要,社会都是相通的,善待每个人,好的运气来至于难以想象的努力 @ thread 第五本。身边没有勇于创新的人,也就没有这番解决问题创造机会突破原有可能性的意识及信心行动力,但在这么一本全在讲述这方面例子的狂轰滥炸下,我也有点跃跃欲试了呢。 @ 灰_faye 记住那些比我年长的朋友教给我的东西,因为都cover了此书的idea @ kiki 非常适合刚开始接触英文阅读的人,训练英文阅读速度,学点生词,顺便了解一下作者的想法 @ 一个人去旅行 More like a lemonade that brings some refreshment of mind, but not much nutritants afterwards @ Sylvia 正好有幸在20岁的末尾读了这本书,虽然可能看起来是个鸡汤书,但我觉得作者讲的观点和建议都十分中肯并且我也认同作者的建议对未来我的的生活方向是有用的。可能现在20岁的我资历尚浅,有这么一本书来为我自己的想法塑形和指明方向还是十分有必要的。推荐! @ 甜甜圈 太假大空了…不过内容不难 适合训练阅读 @ 老张 车轱辘话 @ 废话九箩筐 很简单,阅读起来没有大障碍,一本心灵鸡汤吧。
