作品简介

豆瓣阅读英文书店最受欢迎的励志书之一。作者齐莉格教授目前在斯坦福设计学院教授创造力、创新和创业精神的课程。书中有大量的斯坦福培训案例,丰富的人生和职场经验总结。每一个阅读过的人都能拾获挑战有形规则的勇气,突破无形瓶颈,从平凡中脱颖而出。

Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of the school or starting a new career can be daunting. 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 in the world.
