The Lucky Culture: Nick Carter.

Not sure what to make of this book. On the one hand I can appreciate the arguments, and mildly agree with some of them. But on the other hand I really am mistified by what Nick Carter is implying.

If Ignorence is bliss, then a air tight case has not been presented here. But if the central issue is the importance of practical knowledge, gained via school of hard knocks, versus theoretical or book knowledge via University, with little if any practicality, then the jury is still out.

Anyway have a read if your interest is piqued. but be warned some of the history may be more pertinant to baby boomers than Gen X or Y.
