Summary

Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of 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 on the world.

    A few excerpts: 'Crack' the Head's hand landed. The Head released my wrists and helped me stand upright. "Bend over Wright, and place your hands on the seat of the chair." "Come along girl, I haven't got all day," said the Head impatiently clicking his fingers to emphasise his words. Clumsily I complied, and handed my knickers over with a shaking hand. Immediately the Head busied himself by laying out all the punishment implements, a formidable display. 'Crack! Then the policeman's hand cracked down time after time, until the girl's backside was a bright scarlet. Time and time again, the cane landed, leaving criss-cross weals, until there wasn't a space left unmarked. The girl groaned aloud, and the policeman laughed. Waiting outside the Head's study, Called in at 09.10. Christ I thought the last Head was bad enough but this one is ten times worse. I was pulled straight over the Head's knees, skirt up knickers down for a spanking I shall remember for some time to come.

    Diet regimens leave dieters feeling depleted, weak, and craving the satisfying tastes and textures of real foods like cheese, pasta, and even butter. This is not surprising since highly processed, chemicalladen "diet" foods may actually be causing weight gain rather than weight loss while depriving the body of the quality nutrients it needs to perform at the very highest level.
     
    Skinny Chicks Eat Real Food is a cutting-edge nutritional guidebook, an easy-to-follow diet, and a whole foods cookbook all in one. It will help readers say goodbye to the food that's making them fat and sick and encourage them to eat right to achieve the fabulous body and stellar health they truly crave.
