Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us whether or not we are making the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. That is, until now. As executive director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig guides her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world, providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is an entrepreneur, neuroscientist, and popular teacher, and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students—provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor. These pages are filled with fascinating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving amazing success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our highest potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible, how to recover from failure, and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark on the world.

Every 29 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with cancer and, in an instant, they have to come to terms with a whole new future. To help make this adjustment just that little bit easier, here is a collection of real advice from real people who have all had first hand experience at the pointy end of cancer. What I Wish I Knew about Cancer talks with survivors, pre-viviors, partners, husbands, wives, children, researchers, and medical professionals and asks them all, “If you could go back and give your younger self some advice about preventing, treating and/or outlasting cancer, what would it be?” It then goes on to describe their cancer journey, and how they came to their particular insights. The result is another inspirational What I Wish I Knew book full of the wisdom of hindsight that would help anyone facing this disease. It also has advice on how to better our chances of never hearing those fateful words, “I’m sorry, you have cancer.” What I Wish I Knew about Cancer has been produced to support Tour de Cure, Australia’s leading cycling foundation. Tour de Cure has so far raised over $4 million in cash contributions towards research, support and prevention of cancer in men, women and children. The authors are proud to donate all of their royalties to curing this indiscriminate, stubborn and, let’s face it, bloody obnoxious disease.
