This unique and insightful book challenges our prevailing and often fallacious attitudes about schooling. In today's volatile job market, ideas are more important than training, innovation is more important than credentials; traditional schooling may no longer be necessary or even useful. The ability to educate oneself--to learn how to learn--is crucial. In Secrets of a Buccaneer-Scholar, James Bach demonstrates how to nurture one's natural curiosities and passions through the whimsical learning process he calls "buccaneering"--demonstrating that those who understand this fundamental principle will come to dominate this new world.
