Book: Excellent Sheep by William Deresiewicz

The main thesis of his book is about the value of a liberal arts education and whether the students coming our of Ivy League schools are “excellent sheep” or not. The reactions he is receiving around Ivy League campuses are mixed. I love that he is stirring the debate of what it means to be an educated person.
