Malibu, CA (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
On January 1, 2012, entrepreneur and 22-year-old college senior and founder of the National Presidents Association, Patrick McConlogue, published a micro-eBook introducing readers to a secret Harvard Skunk Works, where students make a chilling vow to never reveal they attended the university. Set in the philosophical realm of “Exception University”, McConlogue argues for the logic of performance-based criteria in response to societal unrest in the next generation. He urges the acquisition of "Exceptions" or students whose performance in entrepreneurship can be studied in the university think tank to determine more effective measurement criteria for admittance.
In the face of waning collegiate performance, a dried-up pool of post-college jobs and movements like Occupy Wall Street, the micro-ebook is presented as a summary of solutions provided by the partners of the National Presidents Association or NPA. As the largest student body government organization in the United States, the NPA with partners in the House & Senate Committees on Education, the Dept. of Education, and numerous educational foundations is poised to add unique and weighty opinions on educational reform.
Since its release, the book has raced up the charts of Amazon's Hot New Releases in Entrepreneurship, Policy Reform, and Education spreading the concept and striking debate in the educational community. When Exception University broke into Amazon’s Best Selling Books there was talk of a second book in the works. Currently trending at #10 in Entrepreneurship and #1 in Reform, the eBook is an introduction to widely discussed problems in American Higher Education as seen through the eyes of the young entrepreneur.
Exception University is available now on Amazon.com for $1. Kindle or iPad. 100% of the author’s proceeds are given to students of the National Presidents Association.
