What You Don't Learn At School by Ethan Butler is a must-read for readers who are about to finish or have just finished school. However, this book's immense value would also be beneficial to those who have been out of school a long time ago but still wish to gain life-changing insights into how they can achieve their dreams.
Have you ever wondered if school curricula align with individual talents and abilities? Do we learn the things we need to survive and succeed in life at school? Mr. Butler recounts how he dropped out of college to get a job. He is now a successful business owner. Bear in mind that Mr. Butler isn't trying to advise you to drop out of school. Instead, he aims to provide you with practical tips that can help you make well-informed decisions as you strive to achieve your dreams after school. The author seeks to give readers a head start on the journey to success through his experiences.
Without trying, the excellent organization of the author's teachings is my favorite aspect of this book. The author follows a step-by-step approach to coach his audience. I like that he recognizes the different stages of one's life after school and provides insights into them linearly. Hence, readers can easily understand what each phase in life requires. And assuming a reader is already employed but is looking to own a house, they can easily follow the tips at that stage.
Furthermore, I enjoyed Mr. Butler's conversational writing tone. I felt as if he was having a relaxed conversation with me over coffee. Also, the author tries to leave no stone unturned. He discusses how readers can save money, take care of their physical and mental health, plan for life in the long run, etc. I love how the author uses simple math to show the reader how small savings or expenses translates into something huge in the future. And at the end of every chapter, there are tasks that readers should complete if they wish to get the most out of the book's value.
Another thing I like about this book is its inspiring message. I agree with the author that the kind of people we associate with can help us actualize our dreams or hinder our progress in life. So it's up to you to choose the company that aligns with your vision.
In conclusion, I loved every aspect of this book and didn't dislike anything about it. I found only one error throughout my read, so the book's editing is commendable. Therefore, I am happy to rate What You Don't Learn At School 4 out of 4 stars. I wish I had the opportunity to read this book before now, so I won't hesitate to recommend it to readers who are about to finish or have just finished school. However, this book would also be beneficial to most readers despite the phase of life they are in at the moment.
