If you’ve not yet picked up a copy of the book, we hope you will grab one and begin reading over the weekend — discussion will start early next week!

    At the time I entered Wake Forest, I was thinking of preparing for law school. It seemed to me that a history major would provide me a path to that end. When history got too tough, I abandoned my plan and switched to Sociology and eliminated any thoughts of law school. I felt that Sociology was more general than history and required less memorization and hard work. I was also trying to balance my night job at Baptist Hospital as well as a social life ( read “women”) so I could devote only so much to historical trivia about the Magna Carta. My new focus was to establish a path to graduation and to think about the career path later on.

    I eventually graduated (on time) and pursued a Masters Degree and a career in hospital administration. I am now in my retirement years and I have found a great love for history, so I guess I am right back where I started from.

      Gretchen, Agreed! Like the Steve Jobs book, this book has so much to discuss! The time period of the early eighties, the transition out of college, mental illness, it is a fascinating read!
