U Thrive

How to Succeed in College (and Life)

By Daniel Lerner and Alan Daniel Schlechter

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

From the professors who teach NYU's most popular non-required class, "Science of Happiness," a fun, comprehensive guide to surviving and thriving in college and beyond.

Every year, almost 4,000,000 students begin their freshman year at colleges and universities nationwide. Most of them will sleep less and stress out a whole lot more. By the end of the year, 30% of those freshmen will have dropped out. For many, the unforeseen demands of college life are so overwhelming that "the best four years of your life" can start to feel like the worst.

Enter Daniel Lerner and Dr. Alan Schlechter, ready to teach students how to not only survive college, but flourish in it. Filled with fascinating science, real-life stories, and tips for building positive lifelong habits, U Thrive addresses the opportunities and challenges every undergrad will face-from finding a passion to dealing with nightmarish roommates and surviving finals week. Engaging and hilarious, U Thrive will help students grow into the happy, successful alums they all deserve to be.

My Life As A Redhead

Jacky Colliss Harvey, Alexis Seabrook
Contributors:
Jacky Colliss Harvey, Alexis Seabrook

Life as a redhead is different. Throughout the ages, redheads have been celebrated and vilified, portrayed as saints, goddesses, clowns, brutes, and prostitutes. No matter the stereotype, one thing is certain: Having red hair gets you noticed! For the owner of those flame-colored tresses, this attribute is both a blessing and a curse. One longs for a means of self-expression and solidarity with the similarly adorned. My Life as a Redhead is a guided journal in which to record thoughts, feelings, special events, and important decisions particular to the redheaded experience. Every page offers a new, creative, and thought-provoking exercise or activity to complete. With full-color artwork and original illustrations throughout, it's the perfect gift and essential companion for every redhead.
