When I took the decision to drop out of high school in June 2017, I never imagined publishing a book 2 years later. And yet! Hack ton Bac (Hack your Education) is a supplement to high school, which allows students to work smarter and with a minimum of effort. This allows them time to develop their passion and find their path. This book was inspired by the methods I experienced myself during my senior year. It is also based on solid neuroscience evidences, which I have been studying for the past few years.
A book for every teenager
The challenge I imposed on mysel was to make a book that brings high school students together, while addressing each one in a personalized way . To do so, I reinvented the structure of the traditional book: rather than having a linear reading (from beginning to end), the book is to be read in levels and themes. Thus, the student navigates according to his problems, going back and forth from one method to another. Each student is the hero of their own story and has the opportunity to progress according to their goals. A student who wants to do very well on their bachelor exams and who is looking to develop their passions will be just as successful as a student who wants to get the minimum grade on their bachelor exams while creating projects on the Internet.
The variety of topics makes the book a complete toolbox for navigating the high school jungle.
Hack your Education teaches you to develop your passion
Behind a catchy title, it is a whole program that I propose to high school students: you don't hack your education out of laziness, but to become an actor of your life. Too many high school students are bored at school and choose their orientation randomly. It is time to give them the tools to overcome their frustrations.
Learn to develop your passion? What's the point? Well, I am convinced that it is essential to do activities that you love for several reasons. First of all, because it is what gives meaning to life and motivation to get up in the morning. Then, stimulating your curiosity allows you to develop many skills: creativity, autonomy, pro-activity...
A useful book at any age
I wrote Hack ton Bac for a teenage audience, but these methods are useful throughout life. I cover topics such as learning how to learn, fighting laziness, becoming more creative, and using the internet to its full potential. It's essential to learn these topics in high school, but it is never too late (or too early!) to learn about them neither. Hack your Education is a book that can be read and reread, even once you're in college or in the professional world.
The promise of Hack ton Bac is to make high school a detail in the lives of teenagers, so that they can focus on things that really interest them.
Hack ton Bac is the best investment for success in high school. So don't hesitate any longer, give this book as a gift or treat yourself!
