Sent to me by my son. My own personal experience of what he says is getting my B.A./M.A. and then running off to live in a commune in Vancouver followed by a year and a half as a gardener in London. Absolute madness, but without it my life would have been a wreck. You must know what you want yourself if you are ever to have the ghost of a chance in getting your life to work. And as a footnote, I remember The Whole Earth Catalog really well.
