You Are Graduating Soon: What’s After High School? is not the kind of book that I normally read. The title would make you feel it’s a self help book for students. I thought it would offer advice on how to choose a college or stream of education etc.
But this book is none of those things. What it is is a leaflet written in fairy-tale book sized font, thereby resulting in said leaflet extending to 20+ pages. As a result I don’t know how to review it like a book. What’s the leaflet about? It promotes the author’s online education portal, http://educatezap.com. It also promotes the usage of social media tools to “upgrade” yourself in the world of education.
The author, in his mail to me, did not hide the fact that this is in fact what it is. He insisted on calling it a booklet, and not a book. He also said he is advertising his online education portal through this booklet. This made me wonder, wouldn’t a traditional brochure or pamphlet (in normal sized font) have sufficed the purpose (of advertising)? To promote the website and social media via a semi-hard cover book seems unnecessary.
I am not sure how to give this a rating on a scale, given this isn’t a real book. But all things considered, I would give it a 3/5
PS: This book was sent to me for review by the author.
