In How to Be a High School Superstar, Cal Newport explores the world of relaxed superstars--students who scored spots at the nation's top colleges by leading uncluttered and authentic lives. Drawing from extensive interviews and cutting-edge science, Newport’s latest book offers step-by-step instructions and guidance to help students and parents navigate the college admissions process without stress. Topics covered include why:
*doing less is the foundation for becoming more impressive.
*demonstrating passion is meaningless, but being interesting is crucial.
*accomplishments that are hard to explain are better than accomplishments that are hard to do.
"Newport possesses an outstanding sense of high school students' lives, as well as the science behind using free time to become interesting, interested, engaged, and authentic. He provides many excellent principles with numerous practical, real life examples to illustrate his points and to help students take immediate action." --Dr. Linda Caldwell, Professor at Penn State University
