Dale J. Stephens left school at twelve to become an unschooler, the self-directed branch of homeschoolers. He has been featured widely in the media, including on CNN, ABC, and NPR. His writing has been published in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Fast Company. In 2011, he was named a Thiel Fellow. Dale is the founder of UnCollege.org. Kyle McCarley, a graduate of the University of Southern California, is a voice-over actor whose credits include audiobooks, video games, TV pilots, Web cartoons and commercials, radio and TV commercials, radio dramas, e-learning software, podcasts, interactive voice mail, and even a toy plush monkey. He started his career as an amateur podcaster with his radio drama The Chalice of Silvermoon, which he recorded in his sophomore dorm room at USC. He has been heard in such games as Dragon Nest, Vindictus, and MapleStory; the audiobooks Forgotten Realms: The Shadow Stone by Richard Baker and Nightingale by New York Times bestselling author David Farland; commercials for Pandora Online Radio; and much more. Kyle is now in the process of developing a cartoon based on the radio play that started it all, now titled The Chalice of Evermoon.
It's no secret that college doesn't prepare students for the real world. Student loan debt recently eclipsed credit card debt for the first time in history and now tops one trillion dollars. And the throngs of unemployed graduates chasing the same jobs makes us wonder whether there's a better way to "make it" in today's marketplace.There is-and Dale Stephens is proof of that. In Hacking Your Education, Stephens speaks to a new culture of "hackademics" who think college diplomas are antiquated. Stephens shows how he and dozens of others have hacked their education, and how you can, too. You don't need to be a genius or especially motivated to succeed outside school. The real requirements are much simpler: curiosity, confidence, and grit.Hacking Your Education offers valuable advice to current students as well as those who decided to skip college. Stephens teaches you to create opportunities for yourself and design your curriculum-inside or outside the classroom. Whether your dream is to travel the world, build a start-up, or climb the corporate ladder, Stephens proves you can do it now, rather than waiting for life to start after "graduation" day.
