YOU CAN DO ANYTHING The Surprising Power of a "Useless" Liberal Arts Education

by | Read by George Anders

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

George Anders reads his long refutation of the idea that liberal arts degrees are useless with amiable conviction. He makes his case systematically, sharing stories of people who turned years of studying subjects like literature and anthropology into interesting, surprising, sustainable careers. Anders doesn't just sound like he's defending the humanities and social sciences; his words and performance advocate the pursuit of these disciplines, pointing out how the critical thinking and creative skills they develop can be applied in a number of fields. With quiet passion, he notes that even tech and finance companies rely on liberal arts majors to help them bring their ideas to profitability. An inspiring and practical listen for students and people looking to make a change in their careers. A.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
