Unconventional. Irreverent. Brutal. Entertaining. Unlike any book written about higher education, Surviving the College Admissions Madness is a complete takedown of a deeply flawed and thoroughly broken system. Kevin Robert Martin argues that elite universities do not care about their applicants. He observes that college admissions is highly undemocratic and dehumanizing. University bureaucracies alienate applicants from their humanity and sense of self. Reading essay advice books might help you get in, but they won’t help you stay sane. Surviving and even thriving depend on digging deep into your beliefs and understanding your behaviors within the broader context of society. This isn’t another Admissions 101 “how-to to write a killer essay” book or a promise of “six easy steps” for Ivy League acceptance. Martin provides helpful advice for avoiding application mistakes, building a reasonable college list, minimizing debt, identifying cognitive errors and distortions, and helping applicants reframe their college applications. This book equips readers with the vocabulary, frameworks, and tools to make sense of America’s broken higher education system, starting with the admissions gatekeepers.

Most present day hemp and CBD books paint a pretty picture of how CBD can heal countless ailments and diseases or how industrial hemp (used for rope, textiles, etc.) can “change the future”. The hype surrounding CBD and its healing properties for arthritis, anxiety, depression, pain, insomnia, and more, created a massively new “Gold Rush”, attracting top celebrities such as Mike Tyson, Dan Bilzerian, Tommy Chong, Kourtney Kardashian, Martha Stewart, and Megan Rapinoe. But what these books have failed to elaborate on, is a behind-the-scenes look at the business as well as the industry’s dark side. Just like its psychoactive cousin, Delta-9-THC, the cannabinoid CBD is derived from one plant, cannabis sativa. With the common plant retaining its stigma and taboo, the same demons haunt it. Navigating legalities, dramas, “Wild West” mentalities, egos, back-stabbing (metaphor), millions and billions of dollars, lawsuits, and exhilaration, were all part of my time on the hemp farm in Colorado.
