great review of Better Than College in Uncollege post:

The second section of the book convinced me that self-directed learning is a feasible option. Boles shares with us five stories of college-aged people, each of whom is making a living doing what they love, without a college degree. Of course, Better Than College is not meant to be just inspirational. The author then lays out his framework for successful self-directed learning (in no particular order):

1. Build self-knowledge.

2. Give yourself assignments.

3. Create and share value.

4. Find support.

5. Market yourself.
