Description
Like many young people, James Bach struggled in school. While he excelled in some subjects—earning A’s in physics and calculus—he barely passed the courses that didn’t interest him. By the time he was sixteen, he dropped out. After teaching himself computer programming and software design, he started working as a manager at Apple Computer—and he never looked back. Now, in Secrets of a Buccaneer-Scholar, James shares with readers how he acquired his own education on his own terms, and how that unorthodox education brought ?him success.

James uses the metaphor of a buccaneer to convey a love of learning and pursuit of knowledge that is not bound by institutions or authorities. He shows how every reader can develop a method for acquiring knowledge and expertise that showcases their unique abilities.
