“Now They Tell Me: 50 Life Lessons I Didn’t Learn in School” is a funny and entertaining guide to work, love, family, sex, and religion. Every person trying to keep up with the ever-changing demands of modern life needs to read this humorous and provocative book.
Ed Harris provides a hilarious account of how formal education failed to prepare the author for the real world. Despite academic success, he was often a complete idiot outside of a classroom. When it came to typical adult challenges, such as finding a satisfying job or being a competent partner in a romantic relationship, he was clueless. He was even fired as a shopping mall Santa, as told in one of the most amusing chapters.
