Summary
What if getting into your reach schools didn't require four years of excessive A.P.-taking, overwhelming activity schedules, and constant stress? 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, low stress, and authentic lives. Drawing from extensive interviews and cutting-edge science, Newport explains the surprising truths behind these superstars' mixture of happiness and admissions success, including: ̈ Why doing less is the foundation for becoming more impressive. ̈ Why demonstrating passion is meaningless, but being interesting is crucial. ̈ Why accomplishments that are hard to explain are better than accomplishments that are hard to do. These insights are accompanied by step-by-step instructions to help any student adopt the relaxed superstar lifestyle--proving that getting into college doesn't have to be a chore to survive, but instead can be the reward for living a genuinely interesting life
