Course Textbook and Materials

     The required book for the course is not your typical textbook. A compilation of a series of interviews ranging from the CEOs of major and popular companies to mainstream comedians to manual laborers, this book is an exploration of what it means to be successful and the often unconventional path that leads many to their dream positions. The interviews are conducted by recent college graduates who embark on a road trip across the nation looking for inspiration. The book launched a grassroots movement and has spawned a documentary and a television series with tons of additional interviews of people from all walks of life. Check out the website to view some of the inspiring interviews that have been conducted since the book around the world. ROADTRIP NATION WEBSITE
