#138: Educated - Spread The Word #11

1 min read

Read The Turning Point - Spread The Word #2 to understand why I’m making a “Spread The Word” post once every week.

This one is about the book Educated: A Memoir.

You can love someone and still choose to say goodbye to them, you can miss a person every day, and still be glad that they are no longer in your life.- Tara Westover, Educated

I finished it recently and I have to say that I can’t remember when the last time was that I got so fascinated by the story of a book from the beginning to the end. One reason is that Tara didn’t attend school and had only minimal homeschooling but in the end she was still able to earn a Ph.D from Cambridge University. Another reason is that the story shows how complicated family relationships can be, but still that you have it in your own hands to make something out of your life, to let nobody stop to reach your goals in life.
