Review: This Book Is Not Required: An Emotional Survival Manual for Students

User Review  - Vanessa - Goodreads

Read this book. NOW. Not only was it revised and edited by a professor of mine, (Hi, Barney!) but it is an incredibly insightful look at the American educational system-- from a Buddhist perspective. Good stuff-- very useful for anyone going to school. Read full review

Read this back in the APU days for a class and still think about some of the things inside. That is something that will always be carried with me. I know it sounds weird. Read full review
